4.18/5 rDev -1.2%
Poured from the tap into a standard pint glass at Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks.
A: Very black with a light tan head that sticks around for just a bit.
S: Very roasty with mocha and black coffee character throughout. Some smoke.
T: Black coffee is dominant of course. underneath is some baker's chocolate, a light roasted character, and a good mocha note. Very thick and coating. Rich espresso notes and a big roasty smack.
My mom doesn't like beer at all, but she likes coffee, and she thought this one was pretty good. That's strong praise in my opinion. I liked this one. Good dessert beer.

3.7/5 rDev -12.5%
Appearance: Very dark brown with a modest-sized medium beige head. This Porter is blacker than many a RIS. Good looking beer.
Smell: Coffee dominates, some roast malts with some faint bready notes.
Taste: Coffee notes hit hard initially. The beer finishes with the cofee and moderate roasted malt notes. The coffee notes are the star of the show as the name suggests.
Mouth-feel: On the light side of medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. spot on for a regular strength Porter.
Overall: Good coffee porter. the coffee isn't as overt as some coffee beers which to me as a coffee addict is a mild let down. The coffee is nicely integrated.
