A very nice porter, though I feel a touch of sweetness would help. Mine is all coffee and a bit metallic, from the can I suppose. I don't find chocolate and sweet malt present as much as some do. Pretty thin in the mouth too. Overall quite drinkable, just lacking complexity on the nose and palate. Always proud of my bayou brews!

Pours really nice but the head dissapates quickly. The nose is all coffee and chocolate but somewhat subdued, I expected it to be more fragrant. Taste is mostly the same. Mild coffee and chocolate but definitely not full of flavor and finishes with a slight sour tang. Feels a little thin but the creamy carbonation makes up fornit a little. Overall it's far from offensive but I wouldn't seek it out again.

Poured from 12oz can into a tulip.

Appearance: rich, dark brown hue with a finger of frothy tan foam. Quite nice.

Smell: very rich coffee aroma up front. One thing I really like about it is that the coffee character reminds me of the kind of coffee notes you naturally find in porter, so the java is a real enhancement here. Very good.

Taste: much like the aroma, the coffee is used to good effect. I also feel like there's less vegetal hop character than you often get in robust porters, but there is still a decent bitterness for the style. I'm a big fan.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and a pretty smooth creaminess. Not at all bad.

Overall: I'm finding myself really liking this porter. The coffee serves as a great complement to the beer's fundamental character.

Coffee Bomb. A little thin, but still nice.

Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Smells of vanilla, coffee, roast malts and mocha. Tastes of vanilla, roast malts, molasses and coffee. Roast malt and sweet vanilla aftertaste with a medium body. Very nice porter.

A: pours black with a nice khaki finger of head which has good retention and leaves good lacing.

S: I get coffee and sweet chocolate initially

T: coffee, chocolate initially. the dark, roasted malt begins to show through as the beer warms. I enjoy it more as it gets warmer. caramel / toffee notes as well.

M: average for a porter.

O: a good beer. nothing outstanding, though

Maybe mine was out of date or something but there was no coffee flavor whatsoever and the mouthfeel was extremely flat, watery and thin.
