P: Dark brown opaque with a tan coloured head. Decent lacing.
A: Dark roasted coffee, chocolate, tinge of vanilla.
T: Dark roasted coffee, milk chocolate, cherry, time of vanilla.
M: Slightly syrupy, lactose feel, medium body, nice balanced flavour.
O: This is a pretty nice offering from Tin Man. Nothing's over bearing. Lactose is spot on.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Poured from pint can a tawny, darkened amber with creamy tan head. Lace is spotty and sloppy.

Aroma: Watery iced coffee, and definitely some cocoa notes. Not bad, though a bit light somehow.

Taste: Plenty of coffee and chocolate here, hitting the palate immediately. The body here seems thin, though, so this one feels really light. A decent session-worthy coffee stout here (at only 5.8%), and one to surely please fans of both coffee and beer, though I find this one a mite lacking in the richness and sturdiness that a good coffee stout demands.

Never have I enjoyed a coffee porter so much. Aside from it's GORGEOUS colorized can, this is everything I look for in coffee-based beers: intense flavors of coffee and cream that balance with the maltiness of the beer rather than compete with it. Despite a lower ABV, these flavors are INTENSE and provide a looong finish that I really really enjoy.

This beer isn't amazing, but it's really good. It's an easy drinker. The lactose background makes this incredibly smooth and drinkable. I was expecting more, but it's still a good coffee porter. The coffee comes through in a very warming and pleasant way. Honestly, I wish I would have bought more than 1 4 pack.

Very mediocre. No strong defining flavor that jumps out. It's has the subtle coffe flavor, but can defiantly use more work.

A - Dark brown, mostly opaque but somewhat translucent. Big full head of tan, rocky, slowly fading.

S - Roast notes and condensed milk, with a bit hint of char and tobacco.

T - Solid roasted malt flavors, with hints of chocolate and coffee, with sweetness and cream. Bitterness comes in a bit in the close.

M - A bit light, but slick and drinkable.

O - A decent porter, but it is the use of the milk here that deserves credit. This is among the more forward uses of it that I've had in a beer. The coffee flavor definitely could be punchier, but the roast elements are nicely fleshed out, and the end result is balanced and drinkable.
