look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a can into a snifter, made a lovely, fleeting head.

Appearance - Deep black body, tan and wispy head.

Smell - Cocoa, chocolate and a little vanilla very nice. The smell is the best part of this beer.

Taste - Cocoa mostly, rpasty aftertaste. Very typical for coffee porters.

Mouthfeel- Somewhat light for a porter, but that viscous nature is still present though not as dominant.

Overall - A nice beer, reminds of me of Victory of Sea by Ballast Point which is the benchmark for coffee porters for me. It doesn't stack up, but for a local beer it is quite good. The best way I can describe is that it starts out very strong then peters out kind of fast. The finish is its weakest point still a very nice beer. I'm proud to see this from Louisiana.

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.

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.
