3.84/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 2 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a 1/2 growler (week old).

Appearance: Pours a deep, dark brown. Little to no head (tan in color). Very little lacing [2/5]

Aroma: Coffee (Kenyan?) and apples. Roasty and smokey too. Very intriguing. [4.25/5]

Taste: Roasted malt and big-time coffee. Fruity esters (apple and fig) are also noticeable. [4/5]

Feel: Carbonation is spot on; however, the beer is rather thin for the style and especially for the abv. [3/5]

Overall: A nice, new porter that is All about the coffee (n.b: I am a coffee fiend). This is a coffee lover's beer. [4/5]

1L swingtop growler, split

Good name for a beer - probably a nod to the b&w film bearing the same name. Great looking beer with a huge chocolate cap. Sightglass coffee was used here and it's extremely potent and heavy handed. I really don't get much smoke, even as this warms to room temperature. Nice and roasty - a solid porter

Pours pitch black with a mocha colored head that pretty quickly dissipates leaving a thin ring around the edge of my snifter. The aroma is intoxicating, I could smell this as soon as I popped open the growler and I continue to smell it as it sits on the table away from me. Roasted espresso, iced coffee, milk chocolate, smoke, and vanilla on the nose. The front of the palate opens up with sweet milk chocolate, in the middle it evolves to freshly roasted coffee and burnt malt, the smoke is very subtle while the coffee really comes forward. Back end of the palate closes with roasted malt and a nice bitterness. Quite good, though it could be a little more complex. I don't get any of the vanilla in the taste that I picked up in the aroma. The smoke really lingers on the palate rounding this out.

Edit: Had to come back to this one. As this warmed I started to get some vanilla and this beer really started to become more complex. Think Victory at Sea when you imagine this beer....
