Look. Dark brown coffee with a frothy light brown head.
Smell. Toasted coffee, maybe a mote of caramel in there, fresh, nose clearing with a mild whiff of yeast.
Taste. Definitely to the malty side, starts with malt sweetness and ends with a palette smacking dryness of very slight hoppy bitterness.
Mouthfeel. Medium light body, not a lot of grains or alcohol, good carbonated sparkle.
Overall. I like best heartier richer malts, but as a lighter milder porter this is really tasty.

22oz bottle into snifter

A: Pours nearly jet black. Thin khaki head, dissipates quickly to a ring of lace.

S: Floral forward, especially for the genre. Sweet with background faint roasted aroma.

T: sweet malt forward, still faint roast with lighter coffee flavor than expected. Finishes with dark fruit and floral hops, aftertaste of bitter roasted coffee.

M: Appropriately thin, moderate carbonation. Smooth for the style.

O: A bit of a let down for the style. Checked bottle and is almost ten months old, should have checked at the store. I am told that coffee is much more prevalent fresh.

Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Victory nonick.

a: Opaque black with clear ruby highlights near the bottom. Two inch thick tan head receded to thick even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Milk chocolate.

t: Chocolate and cold black coffee up front over a mild hop balance. Sweet to dry finish.

m: Medium, good body, some carbonation tingle.

o: An excellent coffee porter, highly drinkable and flavorful. Warms well too.

lots of coffee, great body, it's fairly dry which I like in a Porter but it's not too thin. there is just enough residual sweetness to give it enough body. the coffee comes through nicely but you can never put enough coffee in my beer so I might ask them to just put just a tad more in.

overall it's my second favorite coffee beer behind coffee bender. I'll buy this again
