Had this beer on tap and poured from the can. Two different tastes in my opinion so I will try to bridge the two. On tap this beer may have been the best plain coffee beer I've ever had. Huge dark bitter coffee flavor complimenting the creamy and dark porter flavor. There was also a sweet vanilla aftertaste that was quite enjoyable. The beer was quite complex and very delicious although a higher ABV would have been nice. When poured from the can into a sniffer the beer was not as dark or complex tasting when compared to on tap. All the flavors mentioned above were still present just not as prevalent. There could be thousands of factors why the taste changed but still enjoyed the beer very much.

Poured into a shaker pint

A: dark rich brown black color nice light head 

S: pure roasted coffee and some vanilla 

T: follows the nose to a T this is huge almost fresh coffee taste with a light vanilla back

M: mediumish mouth not super thin but not heavy either

O: I've had several coffee porters lately and they seemed like one trick ponies the vanilla adds another layer of depth to this beer and makes it quite tasty

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.
