3.78/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a pint glass at ITAP in STL.

Honestly, this looks and smells very similar to Founder Breakfast Stout. Creamy, dark, but a touch less ABV at 6% and not much chocolate, mostly just coffee bitterness.

The beer is quite good if not somewhat one dimensional with coffee dominating the entire flavor profile. The background beer tastes very similar to LH Milk Stout. This is a very solid representation of a coffee porter, but does not really wow in any particular area aside from an extremely smooth mouthfeel. Bitterness is present but not over the top. Good flavor punch keeping in mind this a lighter beer alcohol-wise.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours very dark brown to black. The lasting head leaves lacing.

The smell is of wonderfully robust roasted espresso/coffee.

The taste is of rich coffee with dark fruit undertone that keeps it from being one-dimensional.

It is full-bodied and creamy. Fits a fuller side of a porter without going into stout territory.

A rich coffee character with an excellent porter character.

I had this on-tap in a pint glass at Special brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance: totally black with a finger of creamy tan foam leaving a nice lace on the glass. Attractive!

Smell: sweet and roasty, kind of like a milk stout. There's quite a fair bit of coffee character here, too. I like it.

Taste: tons of coffee right up front with a bit of roasty malt underneath. There's also a bit of a green character here, maybe some vegetal hops. Good, but a bit one dimensional.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess. Works for me.

Overall: I like this beer well enough, but it is a bit simple and a little too in-your-face with the coffee for my taste.

$7 pint at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan.

Right off, I can tell you, if you enjoy sweetened coffee, you ought to love this beer. For me, the sweetness is what turns me off just a little bit, and has me nearly giving the overall rating a quarter point lower. Week Sauce tastes like chilled black coffee with a bit of sugar in it, quite honestly, and that may be right up your alley if you want yourself a sweet porter. Coffee all over the nose and taste in this one. The aroma also has some dark chocolate and fruits (blueberry?) that also come off in the flavor a bit. It makes for a pretty interesting and tasty coffee porter that I'd recommend highly for a dessert beer. I'd like to try this again in the future, since I now know it's on the sweeter side, which I did NOT see coming.
