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!

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!

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.

On tap at the Avenue Pub, New Orleans

A: Motor oil black. A tan, one finger head that dissipates pretty quickly. Good lacing.

S: Coffee, chocolate, a tiny portion of anise.

T: A tasty, thick brew with a great blend of coffee and chocolate, slightly more chocolate. Rich, robust, moderately sweet. Very quaffable.

M: Medium to heavy. Chewy. Medium carbonation. A slightly dry finish.

O: A solid porter. One of Tin Roof's best offerings.
