This one has coffee from an artisanal coffee roaster in Bethel NY added to the fermenter.
Appearance: Pours a nice dark brown with a 1 finger khaki crown that displays moderate retention and some lace.
Smell: Really nice espresso notes over dark malts and a tiny herbal hop presence. I'd give it a 4.25 if I could so I'm rounding up a bit. UPDATE: I now can give it a 4.25 so I've modified my score!
Taste: Same as the nose. The coffee is fairly well integrated and the beer stays interesting from the start of the glass through the finish. NOTE: The coffee intensity and integration changes a bit depending on the freshness of the sample.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a small touch of heft to go along with medium carbonation.
Overall: A solid coffee porter that is both sessionable and satisfying. Glad I bought a growler to take home with me!
Serving type: on-tap

Served via nitro tap at the Madison Pour House in Albany, NY.
Pours a shiny dark black. 1 inch head, with not much visible carbonation.
Smells like roasted malts with a small, almost negligible whiff of coffee.
The nitro has smoothed this one out to the point where it tastes like creamy water. Barely any discernible coffee flavor here, just a mess of roasty, creamy water. Not recommended.
Typical nitro mouthfeel. The body is way too thin.
Would really like to try this off of a standard tap as I think it would be tastier.
Serving type: nitro-tap
