look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: leather brown in color, clear, 1/4 inch head, moderate carbonation

Smell: toasted malt and light coffee

Taste: light coffee at the beginning that gets stronger towards the end, husk, and toasted malt

Mouthfeel: sweet with light bitterness, medium-light body, moderate carbonation

Overall: A decent but not overpowering coffee beer. Not sure if I would get this one again, but good enough to make me curious about their other offerings.

A super-tasty, easy-drinking beer that's packed with flavor. It has a wicked coffee nose and excellent porter/coffee taste that doesn't linger at all. While this is a great dessert beer, the crispness and relative lightness makes a year-round favorite if you hoard enough from the winter.

This porter is pretty good, and I like coffee beers, but I think it needs to be more well balanced. I feel like the coffee and the porter are competing and the coffee is winning.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a dark brown color, with a large beige head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains coffee, some roasted malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a little bit of smokiness that is quickly followed by sweet flavors of coffee and chocolate. The malt character is on the thin side for the style but some creaminess comes in as well. The hops presence is mild as it should be and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body but light for the style, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, decent representation of style, it’s not a bad beer but there are better choices within the style.

Pours a slightly darker fizzy smaller head that fades semi quickly little lacing, quite dark brown almost black color.

Nose is big, lots of coffee, a bit of fresh coffee grinds, hint of faint roast, some creamy oat like and creamy milk chocolate, coffee milk, nutty toffee and hint caramel, touch of burnt roast but without acrid at least in the aroma, earthy, and the nutty aroma really increases as it warms and the more I smell it.

Taste starts with more creamy porter flavors, milk chocolate, lactose, chocolate milk and coffee milk, very light coffee grinds and hint of burnt coffee, cocoa powder, little toffee, light nutty flavors. Some earthy hops with mild bitterness. Mild sweetness that gets a bit sticky. Finish is sticky and big lactose creamy but gritty finish, more milk chocolate and faint powdered coffee.

Mouth is med bodied, very creamy lactose, decent carb.

Overall not bad, coffee is on the lighter side mostly, tons of lactose, some chocolate, decent drinking beer overall but too much lactose and not enough fresh roasted coffee but at least there's no acrid burnt.

When opening the bottle, some foam burst through the top. Despite this, it's a small head that settles to only rim bubbles. Initially, there's some spots for lace, but these decrease to nothing as i drink the beer. The color is deep brown, but the light can pass through the center of the glass.

The smell is closer to sweet caramel than coffee. In the background, there's a bit of chalk and light alcohol.

Starts with darker, close-to-burnt malts. Not too harsh, but there's overly sour cherry flavor that shows up in the swallow. This is a bit thin with an elevated carbonation level.

No date, but quite fresh. Just released a couple weeks ago.

A: Pours a nice dark brown with a big fluffy, fizzy light brown head. Head fizzes away quickly with just a few little lines of lacing. Decent retention though.

S: Fresh roasted coffee, not far from sniffing an actual mug of coffee. Coffee overpowers anything else in the aroma, can't pick out other flavors.

T: Lots of hearty, fresh roasted coffee. Not far from drinking actual coffee except there's very little to no bitterness in this. Sweet creaminess really helps balance out the coffee instead. Some decent chocolate in there too.

M: Medium bodied, bordering on thin.

O: Interesting coffee porter. Strong coffee element with a real roasted coffee quality to it. Not like just plain coffee beans. Nice balancing creamy sweetness and chocolate. Really quite nice, despite the simplicity.
