Decent sized light brown head dies to a quarter inch or less of creamy froth above a very dark brown to black colored beer.

The aroma is on the lighter side with heavy coffee and lighter malt notes.

Creamy rich coffee taste with maybe some maltiness coming through as well, but definitely coffee outweighing whatever else is trying to come through.

The coffee taste sticks around with a light dryish aftertaste that leaves an almost creamy film coating my tongue.

I need to search out a chocolate porter/stout from these guys, I think if they make one of those that compares to this with chocolate, damn, I can dream can't I.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: light roast malt character with a hint of coffee. Light diacetyl.

Appearance: dark brown with golden hues in the light. Off white head that lingers.

Taste: roast and toast are prominent. Slight noble hop bitterness in the finish. Coffee flavor presents as the beer warms, but not overly coffee.

Mouthfeel: light body with medium carbonation. Slightly tannic in the finish.

Overall: easy drinking coffee porter. Coffee blends in well with the roasted malt.

Cool bottle purchased at AJ's Beer Warehouse in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a very dark brown, with a foamy dark brown head, and good lacing.

Smells like roasty, bitter coffee and roasted malts.

The taste is similar. Burnt, bitter coffee grounds are the dominant flavor, with some roasted malt, and a little bit of chocolate. Pretty straightforward- tasty, but it's been done better many times. Some creamy vanilla, as well.

Medium bodied, but slightly thin/watery for the style. Very drinkable, though. Low carbonation, creamy smooth mouthfeel.

Not too bad, but a little boring.
