First had: on tap at Coffee District, Delray Beach, FL
Dark brown-black pour with a small tan head. Aroma of dark malts, coffee, used tea bags. Taste was similar, definitely a lot of astringency going on here, light notes of roasty malts and used coffee grounds, a small sugar sweetness, thin earthy hops detectable in the finish. Body seemed thinned out and watery, just a really messy and unpleasant beer all over.
Serving type: on-tap

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.

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
