on-tap at the brewery

1/2 pint pour - dark bodied with a nice cap. Very coffee forward aroma and flavor, ala coffee bender. It's not clear whether the base porter is worth a damn but the coffee integration is heavy and works really well. A nice surprise

Exceptional! A really great Porter smooth and rich with a strong coffee taste that does not hide the beer. It has enough of a kick to make the heavy nature still refreshing. It works well even on a warm spring night in the south.
This is a great brewery and worth a drive to check out.

A special version of the solid Hidden Pipe brewed with coffee.

Black with a slender, creamy off-white head. Aromas of dark roast coffee beans and chocolate. Fresh, sweetened espresso, nuts, and chocolaty roast flavors. Nice, bold, creamy coffee taste...no stale grounds or weak java notes. Tingling carbonation and solid medium body. Not much of the porter character left, but very well done if you like coffee (I do!).

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is jet black, with a light tan halo of head. Nose is super-coffee forward, with overtones of roast and bitter notes. Just like a hot cup of coffee. Flavors are front loaded, with roast coffee beans, bitter and rich, with a smoky highlight. Unreal coffee profiles. Smooth and light bodied. The aftertaste is all bitter and roast, with a long lingering, smooth finish. This beer is fantastic.

NOTE: Tried this version after trying the original for a comparison. Here are my notes from the original: Poured a dark brown body with two finger head and lace patches on top of an aroma that is roasted and sweet malt based, nothing too pronounced. Beer is medium bodied, smooth, good balance, simple use of both roasted/bready malts give it a fuller mouthfeel and there are sweet chocolate aspects that hit the spot. A rather simple porter with not too much going on but the stuff that is in there does the trick.
*I would pretty much say that the addition of the coffee, while a minimal addition, adds a little complexity to both the dryer aspects of the beer and enhances the flavor profile. If you have to only have one, make it the coffee porter.
