3.85/5  rDev -10.7%
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]

Serving type: growler

If you haven't had Coffee and Cigarettes on Nitro, you haven't lived.

I'm not a big coffee drinker, but I am now, thanks to this beer. I first tried during San Francisco beer week this year and was smitten. Since then, I've had each of their different batches maybe except the 2nd and the cask conditioned with doughnuts. Wish I could compare each batch side by side but that might be asking too much. Back to the review, C&C on nitro is the way to go. Its much creamier and sweeter, like a coffee with just the right cream and sugar. If you prefer black coffee, you might want to avoid this but I still reckoned a taste if you're lucky enough. (Could this be produced barrel aged? Maybe with a red wine barrel?) Long story short, (too late) this is the best coffee porter/stout I've come across and I look forward to each batch that pops up more than any other beer/style from Cellarmaker Brewing. Keep it up, guys.

Hot tip: It has a great shirt too.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Nitro pour, so you just know it looks good or at least like pretty much any black beer on on nitro. Black body with a creamy tan head, that creamy beige. Tons of lacing. Pretty pour for their first nitro selection. Aroma has huge chocolate, just a big dose of semi sweet chocolate sauce. There's mild smoke, which kinda gets lost in the chocolate. Some caramel. Solid roast. Pretty big coffee, really good flavor. Taste has plenty of chocolate but more roast and coffee. There's probably a little more smoke, still fairly mild. Mild cola. The coffee is recognizably from Sightglass - I like coffee - and has a nice roast level with some chocolate, vanilla and berry flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy but a bit less so than most nitro pours - no idea if that is about the beer, a conscious decision or just early kinks with the nitro tap. Very solid beer. Better than I remember it from last time. The coffee and chocolate flavors come together very well, and it works perfectly with the smooth nitro pour. Delicious. Probably the best non-hoppy beer that I've had from Cellarmaker.

Serving type: nitro-tap
