Pours jet black wich is out of the ordinary for any find of porter,a billowing beige head atop.Wow coffee grownds jump out at ya in the nose along with bitter chocolate,not much sweetness detected.Dry with alot of coffee on the palate,the oats do make for a creamy smooth feel.A bit of char,roast,and just a hint of molasses round out the rest of the palate.I like the coffee and char,it'sAmerican style with it's char and roast,the alcohol sweetness only plays a minor roll as it warms.Well done.

22oz bottle into a couple of snifters. Thanks go to my buddy Barscream for sharing this one with me. Pours black with a rich mocha head. This stays robust and frothy, leaving swathes of thick lace behind. The aroma is very strong with roasted coffee character, backed by notes of sweet cocoa and some ripe citrus flavor. Coffee pretty much dominates this. The taste is similar, with that coffee in particular really emerging as this warms up, finishing this with a dry roastiness. Chocolate and a touch of caramel add some balancing sweetness, while some light green citric hops add a bit of bitter pop to this. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied with a softer feeling yet still firm creaminess to the carbonation. That 10% ABV is nicely hid. I didn’t think this was bad at all. It just took a while to get going and the complexity could have been a little better once you get past all of the coffee. Hopefully this one will continue to get tweaked, as it’s on its way to being a solid beer.

Snifter at Triple C. Pretty dark nearly black pour, nice frothy light tan head. Laced a tad.
Aroma, yep that is coffee. A little malt and dark chocolate.
Taste, definetely coffee forward. It's a tad acrid. There is a little roast malt, but it is kind of overpowered. Cocoa and coffee finish.
About medium bodied. Coats well enough. Not quite creamy. Faint warming from the abv. Has potential, can be improved I believe. Needs a little something additional to the coffee. Worth trying though.

Pretty much opaque, even when held in front of a direct light source. Aroma is almost exclusively freshly ground espresso beans with a hint of chocolate. Flavor is predominately bitter chocolate and, you guessed it, coffee. Struggled to taste the purported honey flavor. Noticeable impression of spiciness/warmth/alcohol presence on the back end into the finish, bordering on being overbearing. Patent bitterness lingering in the aftertaste. Medium-full bodied with a creamy thickness very appropriate for American Porter/Stout styles. Wouldn't mind dialing the honey up a notch.

A: Pours an opaque but clear jet black in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass along the edges and some faint dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy very dark tan head that slowly reduces to a medium sized thick patch surrounded by a thick film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts along with some moderate to strong aromas of coffee grounds (right after the coffee is brewed). There are also some light to moderate aromas of bittersweet chocolate and just a hint of honey sweetness.
T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of roasted malts with light to moderate flavors of burnt toast and just a touch of honey sweetness. There is a strong flavor of freshly made coffee/coffee grounds as well as a moderate flavor of fudge. Just a hint of earthy and piney hops. Light amounts of lingering bitterness and just a touch of alcohol sweetness in the finish.
M: Medium to full bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.
O: Very enjoyable and very well done - exactly what is advertised with the breakfast flavors/aromas. Really nice presence of coffee.

Winter 2013 vintage. Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is almost jet black, with auburn-brown highlights around the edges, and a thin, tight, halo of light tan head. Aromas of deep, rich roast and bitter coffee, booze, chocolate, subtle sweet notes of vanilla and honey, and some earthy notes. This smells perfectly balanced and rich. Wow! Flavors are very robust, with a blast of cocoa nibs, brownies, dark roasted coffee, subtle sweet notes of honey and cream, and some caramel notes. This is heavy on the palate, but light and smooth in mouth. The beer still holds some of the dry characteristics of your typical porter, too. This is great. The aftertaste is mostly chocolate, with some earthy tones in there, too. Roasted and bitter linger on a slightly dry, mostly smooth finish. This is a great beer!

Appearance: Pours out a fudge brown color with a rather modest head that quickly fades to a ringlet; decent lacing action
Smell: Sweetened coffee with a burnt toast edge
Taste: The sweetened coffee flavors dominate, at the outset, with some piney hops and milk chocolate building in the middle; after the swallow, the hops hold their own as a counterweight to keep the sweetened coffee in check but the honey really comes through in the aftertaste
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low carbonation
Overall: A rather promising first effort at bottling a beer for this new brewery; some elements could be improved but I am rather enjoying the beer as is
