look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark brown with a hint of red; great sudsy head and lacing is okay

S: Some coffee but also lots of sweet chocolate--like chocolate syrup; a bit of a sour weirdness but mostly coffee and chocolate

T: Some coffee and coffee bitterness followed by sweet chocolate and then finally the coffee comes; I wish it was balanced better with other elements but since the beer is a bit thin it doesn't quite finish like you would like; something a bit sour and weird and metallic in the finish

F: A bit thin--though decent feel in the finish

O: An okay coffee porter but not quite as balanced and full bodied as I would like

Bridgeport Cafe Negro

Appearance: dark brown, medium-small head, and some lacing.

Smell: malts and coffee.

Taste: roasted malts and coffee grounds.

Mouthfeel: medium-light.

Overall:
The roasted malts aren't bad, but the used coffee grounds flavor isn't that appealing.

The appearance was almost exactly like a cup of Yuban. Nice and dark,unfortunately no head or lace with this bottle. Reminded me of placing a cold cup of Joe to my nose,but the taste is very smooth,not bitter @ all. Just the right amount of sweetness and malty flavors, very drinkable,in fact Ill have more porters if they taste like this.

A: This is a very nice looking beer. It pours a very dark, almost black, brown with a thin tan head. The head quickly fades and leaves a nicea mount of lace on the glass. Just is a very nice looking beer.

S: I am a sucker for coffee and chocolate smells and this beer has a good amount of both. There is also a strong amount of roasted malt and a lot more coffee.

T: I am very let down by this taste. It is very watery and doesnt have the tastes I was hoping for. There is a decent amount of coffee and chocolate, but it takes a while for this taste to develop. A chocolate taste does linger on the palate for a long time, but I want the instant burst of flavor.

M: The beer sort of burns going down. Its not a terrible mouthfeel, but its not very smooth. I prefer my porters to be very smooth and this just doesnt hit the spot.

O: This is a decent beer, but I just dont care for the flavor as much as I had hoped. Its still not a bad beer, but needs a little bit stronger taste.

Pours a black color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of coffee, roasted malt, sweet malt, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong coffee, roasted malt, slight sweet malt, and a hint of hop. Overall, good appearance and blend, but lacking in body. The coffee dominates and there is little else to help make this a good complex brew.
