This is an espresso coffee porter from Due South. I picked up a 32oz growler from the brewery and dispensed into a Gordon Biersch half liter glass at home. Pours a nearly opaque, dark brown color with purple highlights. Topped with a two finger sized, mocha colored head that is frothy and well built.

The first thing hits the nose is the coffee. I love the smell. Freshly made coffee pot filled with dark coffee and espresso greet the nose first. A solid dose of roasted malts follow suit. Hop aroma is limited.

Freshly brewed, bitter coffee arrive on the tongue and make this one taste like cold coffee. A lot of people don't like cold coffee, or very strong coffee flavor in their beers, but I love it. The finish is bitter and somewhat astringent. Tis one is in your face coffee three ways to Sunday.

The mouthfeel was a bit thin; very little body to this one. And the carbonation a little high, but overall, this is a wonderful coffee beer. Perhaps one dimensional as far as the coffee, but I dug it.

Note: if you are opposed to strong coffee flavors, or cold coffee, this beer will noy be for you.

A coffee beer for people that like coffee for sure.

Just shy of pitch black, but you can see a dark red/purple when you hold it up to light. On the pour I got a small off white head that fades to just a rim of head left throughout the drink.

Overall the smell is coffee through and through with a slight malt smell to it.

For me it starts off with a good bitterness, and then you get the strong coffee flavor with a smoother vanilla finish that almost left me with a warmth in my throat, but really just a bit of coffee flavor left on the palate. It's a lighter beer which made it easy to drink.

My can said it was 5.7% abv, but this says 5.9. Maybe that's off the tap. Either way, people that enjoy iced coffee would be the main target for this beer.

On tap at Due South - happy to see an espresso porter on the tap list

Really mellow porter. Sweet caramel, cocoa nibs, and a touch of espresso in the finish. Lacks a monster body and a major hop presence but amazingly smooth and drinkable. One of my favorites from Due South thus far
