Draft pint at Monk's, quick review from written notes.

Dark brown with mahogany edges. Compact head of khaki colored foam. A few concentric rings of lacing form, with spotty bits in between.

Mild roasty aroma, slightly metallic unfortunately.

Milk chocolate and malted milk ball flavors, slightly metallic again. Light roast bitterness, medium bodied, somewhat creamy. Overall it was ok, but the metallic notes threw off it's more redeeming qualities.

Served on draft in a balloon glass at Old Town Pour House.

Moving from the balcony to the main bar for something new during this bachelor party. This stuff pours a murky midnight sienna topped by a finger or so of khaki foam. The nose comprises sweet coffee, mild roasted malts, a touch of graham cracker, and a vague hint of even vaguer fruit. The taste brings in more of the same, the coffee a touch bitterer now, and there's a light breeze of flowers blowing across the tongue amidst the malty others. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a somewhat dry finish. Overall, a pretty solid porter, nothing noteworthy, but a nice, roasty drink on this celebratory e'en.

A: Dark brown with a thin white head, which fades quickly to a wisp of white lacing.
S: Roasting coffee and caramel in the forefront with chocolate in the background.
T: A pleasant mix of coffee and bitter chocolate.
M: Rich and velvety with low carbonation.
O: A pleasant departure from many other overly sweet coffee stouts I've tried recently.
