4.05/5  rDev +2.8%

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!

Growler from Yorktown, Bev, Yorktown, NY

New local brewery from just cross the river, time for a tasting room visit.

Pours near black, nice and lasting darker tan head. Goes to a tiny bubble fil and leave hig fine lacing.

Dark grains and ample coffee on the nostrils

Roasty and heavy on the coffee on the palate, this is a robust and dare I say stout take on the style. Long dry finish with some smoke, more dark grains and again coffee. Carbonation on point. Nicely crafted and well worth a try.

Worth giving this one a try if distribution reaches your neck of the woods

Huge tan head that stays for days and days. Slow fade leaves a light covering and bits of lacing. Smokey roasty malt. Notes of molasses and caramel. Sweet bit of light alcohol. Chocolate and coffee abound. This stuff is like a mocha beer in your nose. Taste is full of coffee with the chocolate notes from the nose subsumed into a cocoa powder dusting on my tongue. Roasted and charred malt with a bit of toffee and molasses. A dark fruitiness. Earthy hops feature a dry astringent finish. Clean on the swallow with notes of vanilla. A bit of sweet brown bread lingering. Feel is medium light and with a gentle tingle. A bit of syrup to give a touch of heft. Smoothly drinkable and satisfying. A good solid brew.

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.
