i really didnt care for this one all that much. i havent had much beer from these guys, but they have a great reputation, so i was stoked to open this up, but its a let down as a coffee beer, with limited java character in flavor, aroma, and feel, and with limited porter character too, way thin in body, lacking roasty depth, and coming through more as a weak and flat brown ale, minimal carbonation and a long weird finish. i expected a lot more from this, but my biggest critique is the porter label, its not nearly deep enough and dark enough on the grain front, and the coffee is real subtle too. there just isnt enough here to have me excited, and the lack of bubbles in the feel makes it seem almost sloppy. i have to imagine these guys can do better. this was definitely nothing special.

Appearance- Nearly pitch black with a noticeable mahogany hue. Pours a one finger white/mocha head that quickly dissipates.

Aroma- Very strong aromas of coffee, roast malt, and dark chocolate. Very little sweetness present.

Taste- As the nose indicated this heavy on the dark roasty flavors and small on sweet flavors. Up front coffee and roasty malts dominate the flavor and linger to the finish. Towards the back end a little bit of sweet chocolate and bready flavors show up. Gets sweeter and smoother as the beer warms up.

Feel- Medium bodied and on the thinner side. Some prickly carbonation present as well.

Overall- A very good coffee porter that definitely satisfies the need for a roasty/coffee beer, but has enough sweet chocolate/bread to add some balance. Overall, not quite a great beer, but certainly worth picking up again.
