This is a beer that was apparently brewed by Left Hand for the celebration of American Craft Beer Week, hence the "week" pun in the name. It's a spectacular coffee porter.

Appearance: It looks like a porter. I don't really need to describe this.

Smell: Acrid burnt malt and strong, black coffee with little sweetness.

Taste: In a word--delicious. Very dry, but with a hint of vanilla-like, round, residual sweetness/creaminess. Almost like an exceptionally flavorful dry stout. Heavy on the roast, like on the sweetness, with enough coffee to let you know that this is a coffee beer without having read that it was. (I had not)

Mouthfeel: Very creamy and dense for its alcoholic strength, perhaps enhanced by maltodextrin?

Overall: It jumps immediately into the short list of best robust porters I've ever had, even though it's sort of a different animal, being a coffee beer. Superbly balanced, drinkable and delicious. The fact that I may never have this again because it's a one-off makes me want to weep.

On tap at barleys tonight

dark brown, nearly black in color with a nice little puff on tan colored head on top. Nice lacing as it drops down the sides leaving a broken crown along the top. Aroma is solid coffee, with light notes of lactose and touches of something sweet balancing in there as well. Rich coffee notes with light touches of sugar are the way to go here. Smooth, easy sipper as each taste seems to bring more of the coffee flavor up to the forefront. at six percent deadly
