On draft at Scotty's.
Pours very dark brown with red hues and a minimal mocha head.
Strong coffee in the aroma along with dark chocolate and good roasted malts. Was surprised by how good this smelled.
Flavor was pretty good right off the bat. Strong espresso and coffee flavors along with bitter chocolate. Somehow unlike most other porters/stouts, it got worse as it warmed. The espresso character faded with temperature and left a lightly flavor chocolate/roasted malt beer. Still pretty tasty, but not nearly as good as the first sip and not overly complex.
A little bit thin bodied, but not horrible. Appropriate carbonation.
Probably the best 3 Wisemen brew I've had, but still could've been better. Would definitely get it again, but I wish more of the coffee/espresso would've stuck around for the whole glass.

I tried this at the Scotty's in West Lafayette. They got the keg specially for St. Patty's Day. This beer arrived a dark brown, and thin soda brown with a slight beige head. It looks pretty thin for a porter. It smelled of roasted malts, light roasted coffee, and bitter chocolate. Despite the adjectives used in the sentence prior, none of which were very impressive. They were pretty weak. The taste was of light coffee and then it got really dry and bitter. It was somewhere in between hops and bitter chocolate. It wasn't smooth and didn't offer enough balance. It drank a little thin for my liking, a little watery. Overall I'd say that this beer is just ok but I do hope that the West Lafayette Scotty's continues to get kegs from Thr3e Wisemen.

The CASK version is pretty great and has a taste of pure coffee. It's much different and IMPO it's better than the regular version. This is actually my first time trying a beer from a cask and it was pretty great. The carbonation was a tad low (however, I understand that's expected) it was dark but not too bitter and the taste of coffee was fluent and constand. If you are in luck, try it from the cask.

Pours a great dark brown with decent head and good lacing. Nice deep and dark malty scent, with good roasted grains and a nice undertone of coffee and slight hoppiness. Great flavor, a nice deep roasted grain malt sweetness with wonderful coffee tones (brewed with Indy local, Hubbard & Cravens, coffee), and a great bitter aftertaste that lingers and mingles well with the coffee. Goes down really smooth and creamy.
