As I'm selecting my numbers for my rating I realize they are high.
But as I play the beer back in my head, nose and mouth, it's worthy.
Enjoyed a half-pour today at the brewery.
Look was everything you would expect...deep dark brown with a nice creamy head.
You didn't even have to get that close and the smell of coffee hit the nose and I knew it was on.
The coffee, along with a bit of vanilla, greeted my tongue and mouth with open arms and I know I muttered "Damn this is good" more than a few times.
For the style, it seemed thicker than most porters I've drank, so it was almost a stout consistency.
Just a damn good beer all around. Would really love to try a BA version of this.

Amazing fresh coffee nose. Tons of coffee flavour, nice subtle vanilla. So good.

Pours black with a half finger dark tan head of tight bubbles that recedes pretty quickly to a ring. Aroma is all fresh cold brew coffee just exploding out of the glass. Taste is coffee and sweet vanilla with milk chocolate sweetness. Simply delicious. I would drink this every day.
