Black with a pocked beige head. Good retention. Smells like coffee with faint whiskey highlights. Vanilla and cigarette ashes in there too. Tastes like thin, blah, watery coffee discharge. Very, very low carbonation. The coffee and mildly vanilla roast malt sit like an amorphous puddle without high or low lights. The low carbonation really helps to muddle an already messy beer.
I love Night Shift enough to chalk Bean up to either a bad batch or maybe it just doesn't hit my palette in a good way. My wife loved it so maybe its just me.

Had this on-tap at the brewery. dark black pour. Smelled fantastic. Really get the coffee aroma and some bourbon on the nose. Really smooth and great carbonation. Big bold coffee flavor. The bourbon flavor from the barrel is much more subtle. As it warms you taste more of that and some vanilla. Really great beer. Might be my favorite offering from Night Shift so far.

Poured pitch black with a slight off white head. Huge roasted coffee notes on the nose, as expected from a coffee porter. Tons of coffee flavor up front. So much so, that I think the vanilla gets lost a little. As it started to warm up, the vanilla really started to shine through. The bourbon barrel is well incorporated and adds something to the overall flavor without taking over completely. Mouth feel was a little thin with perfect carbonation. Overall a damn good coffee forward beer that I could see myself enjoying at breakfast.
