On tap

A- Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a thin brown head. Did not notice any lacing.

S- The aroma punches you in the face with coffee and roasted nuts and earth. And I mean, a ton of coffee.

T- The coffee flavor is extremely pronounced. The normal roasted notes of an American porter are subdued and almost an afterthought- that's how much coffee flavor is there. Very bold.

M- The body was thin, not sticky but not dry either. I would guess the ABV is around 5%, definitely not more.

O- I LOVE coffee beers, and this had so much coffee flavor, it definitely went past my expectations. I don't mind that the body was thin because they delivered on the coffee taste. It was absolutely delightful. I wish I would be able to find this more often.

OMG someone put coffee in my beer. I have had this a couple of times, I tend to grab it when I can find it. It is dark to the pour, very little carbonation, it is like drinking coffee with beer added on the back-end. It seems they partnered up with Greenway Coffee Co. to produce this. Cold brewed coffee was added along with some lactose to smooth it out. This is a great porter to sit around and drink on cool evening, which is what I did today.
A fairly substantial English dark ale with restrained roasty characteristics. 4.6% ABV 18 IBU

Oh... this is good. It has a very pleasant, nutty, coffee aroma. The taste is bold with just enough sweetness. At 4.6% ABV, this is almost down in session beer territory. I don't normally drink more than 1 porter at a time, but I make an exception for this.
