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.

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: A very dark brown with a very thin body, looks almost opaque black once poured in the glass but when placed against the light you see the body pretty well. (Light tan) Head is very thing and honestly poured about 1/10' and settled to almost nothing before a sip.

Smell: Strong aroma of espresso makes you think you are about to drink an iced coffee.

Taste: Smooth coffee taste with a slight mocha feel. A notch sweet but then again chocolately bitter.

Mouth: Medium bodied feels like just sticky enough.

Overall: This beer took me by surprise, it packs a punch of flavor that will easily attract you. I can honestly say a definite must grab. Salud!
