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 = The darkest, most beautiful black coffee you can imagine, with a luscious creamy head and ample lacing on the glass.
S = Coffee upfront and the malty porter second. Exquisite.
T = Wow!! For a coffee and porter lover like me, this is heavenly. Coffee, light vanilla, and then smooth maltiness on the palate.
M = True to the Porter style, with just a bit of extra-creaminess.
O = This is a favorite that I hope to revisit over and over again. Would it be wrong to pour this in a coffee cup in the morning and enjoy it at 7 a.m.?!? As far as food pairings, I'm not quite sure what would stand up to its richness, but maybe a slice of pecan pie or a sweet/spicy barbeque sauce on top of baby back ribs?

22 oz bomber.
A - dark as night. Small cream colored head. Second pour a two finger fluffy head.
S - coffee, smoke, vanilla.
T - tastes as it smells. Heavy in the coffee.
M - near perfect. Solid, but not overly thick or syrupy.
O - good stuff. Recommended for porter heads.
