Love this beer. I felt like changing it up from my usual run since it is so damn cold outside. And for $3.99, what a steal.
A: Black. Very, very dark. Looks like, well, coffee. Licorice comes to mind. So does a black hole. Lacing left at the top reminds me of the lacing at the top of a root beer float left from the ice cream.
S: Coffee. Straight in your face coffee. There is no going around it. As the beer warms, hints of chocolate, fig and vanilla appear.
T: This baby tastes like the finest coffee money can buy. Jamaican, peruvian? Wish I knew what types of beans were used for the "coffee extract" made for BBC. Slight chocolate and vanilla as the beer warms.
M: Heavy. Lingers around the edges of your mouth as it drips down. Amazing. Good bitterness too.
O: You wanted a coffee porter? You got a coffee porter. I plan on bringing a few of these bad boys back with me to NY and then to NC to enjoy with a few of my friends.

A - This beer is very dark. When held to the light only a faint ruby glow is perceptible. It is topped with a couple inches of tan head. There is a little lacing.
S - I smell some coffee, but it is not strong at all. There really isn't much else.
T - I get a some coffee and roasted malt. There is a mildly bitter finish.
M - Medium with low carbonation.
O - Full disclosure: this beer has two things working against it. This is my second beer of the evening. The first was a Peruvian Morning with huge coffee smell and taste. This beer lacks compared but still has its own merits. Second, this bottle was purchased in Massachusetts about ten months ago. I may have held on to it for too long. It is decent but not as good as the score indicates. i will revisit given the opportunity for a fresher bottle and a cleaner palate.
