3.43/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a very dark brown, almost black. Two fingers of tan head slowly reced and leave heavy lacing on the glass.

Aroma is roasted malts and coffee, you get the impression that the coffee is complex, earthy and mildly spicy but at the same time it seems a bit "green" like it's TOO freshly roasted. There are hints of chocolate.

Taste is roasty, lots of coffee and darkly roasted malts. The coffee still has a bit of a green, vegetal taste to it. I roast my own coffee beans and the taste reminds me of beans that are not allowed to rest after roasting.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and medium carbonation.

Overall this porter is just OK, the off flavors from the coffee kinda screw it up for me.

Served in an Augustijn chalice at Local Option.

What became the last beer of my day in the City turned out to be a gift from a guy I believe to be a Bridgeport distributor's rep. Good on ya, boyo! Anyway, this stuff pours a deep black-brown topped by a finger of off-tan foam. The nose is pretty much a blast of coffee, though there may or may not be some mild roasted malts peeking through on minor occasions. The taste shows it's a coffee porter by including some roasted malts and light dark chocolate with the large amount of coffee. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a damn dry finish. Overall, a pretty nice coffee porter, especially if you like your coffee front and center.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours very dark brown, almost black. 3 fingers of mounded kahki head with impressive staying power. Lacing is thick on the sides of the glass.

S - Chocolate syrup is the first thing that comes to mind. Smoked malts, some vanilla, and hints of coffee.

T - There's the coffee, some roasted malts, slight oxidation, almost has a coffee/sweet&sour mix/tequila flavor, kind of strange. Roasted bitterness and pine on the back end. Aftertaste is a bitter coffee.

M - Firm medium body with sudsy carbonation.

Not bad but not great. It taste like coffee with a splash of tequila which isn't as gross as it sounds. I have a buddy that drinks this stuff almost exclusively and he's not even a coffee drinker. Good to try but not worth seeking out.

Pours a pitch black, with a thin mocha colored head. Smells of fresh ground espresso and dark chocolate. Taste begins with a smoky, woody character, followed by some straight coffee flavors. After that a bit of malt sweetness gets through, and finishes with an earthy, very clean finish. Mouthfeel is the only failing point. It's quite watery, especially considering the ABV. Overall a good beer that I would like to have again.
