Keg at EBF.

Very dark pretty much pitch black, slightest hints of light on the corners, light creamy head.

Nose fresh espresso, roasted coffee, light maple, hint smoke, chalky cocoa, dark malts.

Taste chocolate, fresh espresso brewed coffee, dark choc, creamy oats, light maple, slight hint of smoked bacon like, a bit of caramel and toffee, some bitterness from light earthy hops and the roasted malts, just the slightest hint of booze. Finish is long and a bit more bitter but not very bitter at all, tons more espresso and chocolate.

Mouth is rich and a bit creamy, full bodied, decent carb.

Overall wow, this beer is awesome. I really wish we could get it up here in MA.

From 02/03/12 notes. Had on tap at EBF up in Boston, MA.

a - Pours a dark brown, almost black color, with one inch of dark tan head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of coffee, roasted malts, smokey malts, sweet sugar and dark fruits, dark chocolate, and light vanilla or cream. Really nice.

t - Tastes of coffee, smokey malts, roasted malts, brown sugar, sweet dark fruits, chocolate, toasted malts, and vanilla. A tiny bit more smoke then the nose.

m - Medium to full body and low carbonation. Thick body, very nice.

o - Overall a really great beer, though not as good as the BA version (Morning Wood). This vversion is smokier, and not quite as smooth. Still great and worth checking out.

On tap poured into a sampling glass at Extreme Beer Fest 2012. Much of this will carry over from my Morning Wood review but this was still a stand out of the fest.

Pours a black-as-night color with a small dark brown head that is fine and just clings everywhere in your glass. Nose is still utterly amazing for a coffee lover like me, the coffee is slightly more pronounced and less mellow but still amazing.

Taste follows the nose, more coffee, a bit more acidic but then again coffee is acidic so no real surprise. Maple is still present and delicious. Overall this is an awesome candidate for barrel aging but it's nearly as good off steel.

Pours black with a tan head. Looks the look for a coffee porter. No surprises there.

This beer smells just as good as any beer I've ever had. Coffee beans, bacon and slight notes of smoke. It immediately makes me crave pancakes. Just incredible.

I get a ton of maple in the taste. There is also plenty of black coffee but the bacon takes a back seat. Perhaps a little on the back end. All of the ingredients are in concert. Medium body with low, albeit, perfect carbonation.

The beer was quite impressive. It was a perfect choice for the first hints of Autumn and would love the opportunity to revisit in the future.
