Color is a dark red brown with one floating island of foam in the New Belgium snifter. Pleasant grainy scent with some cocoa and coffee. The aroma grows on you. Apparently this is meant to be a coffee brew, though you would have to notice the scratchy bit of art on the minimalist label suggests half a coffee bean. Carbonation is sub-par.

I would have guessed this has a light dose of chiles, since the coffee does not jump out at you. It's a nice warm tang, whatever it is. Rather malty with a sweet note. Brewery says this is made with Cascade, Columbus, and Chinook and rates the IBUs at 46. I suppose this is not a bad coffee-flavored beer if you like the flavor on the mild side. It's not a very satisfying dark brew, whatever it's tryng to be, in my opinion.

From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bottlecraft in San Diego. Price is a ludicrous $9.75, but that includes the burlap bottle neck cozy.

A: Very slightly hazy, dark to dark-medium brown, off-white head dissipated quickly.

S: Coffee bomb, roasted notes, a hint of dark chocolate, very slight hint of mineral.

T: Coffee, Coffee, Coffee! Roasted notes, slight bitterness in the aftertaste.

M: Pretty light bodied, smooth but light, maybe light-medium bodied, maybe.

O: Definitely a coffee-foward porter and light on the porter side. Reminds me of a lighter bodied English Porter with a whole bunch of coffee (and good coffee at that). Great stuff!
