3.6/5 rDev -9.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
out of a gallon growler:)
looks like a dark stout.
SMells like choco and coffee
tastes like coffee, hot milk, sugar, and a dry irish stout finish. Starts with loads of flavor then dies immediately. Could use a little extra hop backbone and something else that would set it apart, but it's good, just not all that drinkable. That said, me and My buddy polished of the gallon fairly quickly without many complaints.
Genre-less, a bit unoriginal, but decent. I'd like a little more heat, or go for more drinkability and porter like sour backbone, but you get neither here.
A really striaght forward coffee porter/stout that you won't dislike OR pay this much for again.
The best thing about the beer is the appearance. Ominous head, retains very well, nice bubbly surface throughout, high quality///.... just seems to me like a good but not great beer... maybe a bit misrepresented with the name... I'd say it's closer to a stout than a porter... or at least the guinness-like under-whelmingness of the whole thing makes it feel that way... nice coffee flavors, but not much of anything else...
a lot of flavor, and tastes very good, but after 10 ounces you've discovered everything there is to this beer.
WOUld NOT turn one of these down, but won't session again.

Pours a black color. 2/3 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong coffee (almost burnt), sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of pale malt, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a slight tartness present. Tastes of sweet malt, strong coffee, slight roasted malt, hint of hop, and a hint of pale malt . Overall, very coffee-centric. All other flavors are muted because of the strength of the coffee.

I had this one on tap tonight at the Rackhouse. As has been mentioned in other reviews, this one looks just like a porter. Aromas of freshly roasted coffee, roasted malts and cocoa. On the palate, this one is medium bodied and a little acrid, with flavors of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt.
