Bottle purchased at FreeBridge

Pure black body, no highlights, topped by a softball of dark tan foam in my Aventinus glass.

Rich, powerful, enticing coffee aroma.

Flavor heavy on the coffee, but with enough milk to call it cafe au lait.

Thick and rich mouthfeel, chewy.

A terrific coffee porter. I'm not surprised.

Bottle shared by Ryan (Treebs). Thanks dude! Served in a Cantillon taster glass.

A - Tan foam settles to a thick collar and specks of lace. Very dark brown body.

S - Smells like stale coffee grounds, lactose sugar sweetness, toasted grains, light roast, and some caramel and chocolate sweetness.

T - The taste is similar, with faded coffee that has a touch of metallic bitterness to it. More caramel and toasted biscuit and less roast here. Alcohol is well-hidden. Probably would have guessed this was a standard 7% porter (EDIT: Apparently the bottles ARE closer to 7%).

M - Smooth, albeit slightly watery medium body. Moderate carbonation, with some lingering stickiness in the finish. No obvious alcohol.

D - Eh. Perhaps this was better when the coffee had more oomph. Drinkable, but not really much to distinguish it from a number of other similar beers in this category.

A - pours a deep midnight black with hints of chocolate brown. Thick dark tan foam. Eventually fizzles out leaving lots of spotty lacing.

S - aroma is dense, decadent, and just cries out 'desert'. Smells like a coffee with creamer. Sugary lactose is strong. Malty notes create a milk chocolate character. Roast notes seem to come from the added coffee. Malt seems more silky and sweet.

T - sweet flavors on the tip of the tongue. Silky milk chocolate. Sweet cream. Roasty coffee beans come through in the center for balance. The deep coffee flavors entwine with the malty flavors. Backend is more sweet with a faint herbal hop character.

M - silky. Creamy. Medium bodied close to full. High tight scrubbing bubbles of carbonation from the bottle conditioning.

O - nice beer. Definitely in the desert beer category. Bit too sweet for me, might have been better for me in a smaller format or paired with food.
