Had this one while visiting New Orleans for Cantillon Zwanze Day! Served from tap into a nonic. Poured a deep red-brown with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and coffee. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, coffee, and powdered chocolate. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. I’m a pretty big fan of coffee porters and this one was definitely a good example of the style. Very nice notes of coffee and sweet chocolate going on here that made it rather easy to drink and very nicely balanced. A well done brew that I wish I had steady access to, if you do, I suggest you take advantage of it.

Pours a dark brown colour, some clarity. First pour, got a near finger head, second, about a finger and a half...I think the keg was nearing completion. Colour was tanned.

Aroma had a very nice roasted coffee, chocolate and roasted malt smell. Slight sweetness.

Taste was also nicely coffee, roast, chocolate, caramel, and very mild bittering hops.

Body was upper medium, creamy, good carbonation and soft feel.

Great coffee notes without seeming at all stale or over sweet. Great local coffee porter! To hell with seasonal, brew it all the time!

Maybe mine was out of date or something but there was no coffee flavor whatsoever and the mouthfeel was extremely flat, watery and thin.

Tin Roof Parade Ground Coffee Porter has a medium, beige head, a dark, but not hazy, standard brown appearance, visible clinging bubbles, and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, medium-roasted barley malt and a faint coffee smell. Taste is of the same, but the smooth coffee is more pronounced, here, than in the smell. Bitterness is present, but mild. One will also pick up some sweet creaminess, but no alcohol. Mouthfeel is light and a touch slick, and Tin Roof Parade Ground Coffee Porter finishes mostly dry, easy drinking, and rather refreshing. I would like to see them do a coffee and chicory porter. Overall, this is worth checking out.

A: Black. Pours a half finger, foamy, brown head. Settles quickly leaving a smattering of foam on the surface. Slight lacing. Head renews fully with each pour.

S: Roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and malt.

T: Roasted coffee is prominent, chocolate is milky and also prominent, a little bitter nutty characteristic.

M: Bitter in the front, a bang of subtle sweetness in the end. Thick, hearty, and earthy.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is pretty solid. Nice head, remaining foam, and some slight lacing. Nose is coffee, chocolate and malted grains. Coffee and chocolate components are quite prominent, yet well-balanced with a bitterness and a sweetness. Overall, this is a good quaff.

So pumped this is in cans!

Appearance: Pours a medium brown with a nice fluffy two fingers of khaki white head that fades to a solid lace.

Smell: Coffee and roast up front followed by nice rich chocolate. A very inviting smell and what I'd expect from its description.

Taste: Light but solid coffee flavor followed by rich chocolate and roasted barley, a slight nutty texture and overall creaminess. Well rounded and complex.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with low carbonation and a nice creamy texture. Greatly balanced and easy drinking.

Overall: A fabulous porter that is extremely well rounded and balanced. Absolutely worth trying and I'm pumped it is in cans!
