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

Appearance: Pours a fudge brown color with an impressive mocha head; excellent retention and plenty of lacing

Smell: Coffee dominant, with milk chocolate, black bread and roast underneath

Taste: Black bread, milk chocolate and some roast lead off, with the coffee building to dominance in the mid-palate; after the swallow, an espresso fruity bitterness kicks in and lingers into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A fine beer and among the top coffee beers I have consumed

Thanks, bbpro47, for the opportunity

Growler left in my fridge. Thanks Brad! Afternoon treat.

The beer is near black and opaque with a thin, oily beige cap. Aromas of rich coffee, espresso beans, chocolate, malt. Mocha and espresso character. Zesty carbonation and spritzy finish. Medium to full bodied. Roast and dark chocolates. Abv hidden well. This is potent stuff. Yummy.

Bottle. Aroma is sweet chocolate, coffee, and roasted barley. Appearance is very dark brown with a thin tab head. Taste is milk chocolate, sweet malts, coffee, and toast. Medium full body with moderately low carbonation. Overall a nice, rich porter with a nice balance between milk sugar and coffee bitterness.
