Medium coffee and hop notes. Poor mouthfeel. Thin and uninteresting as far as coffee porter goes but would drink over bud light etc. In all honesty and in my opinion, probably not worth all the money it took to ship this all the way from Hawaii. Sorry guys at Kona. :(

First I have to say is wow! Love this beer!

A - nothing special about the appearance which is the only thing wrong with this porter. Pours a typical perfect black color bot small brown head that fades quickly into a very small amount of lacing.

S - terrific with a sweet coffee and roasted malts!

T - almost perfect!! May be perfect!! Definitely into top two. Perfectly balanced for my taste buds sweet honey or caramel prevails with coffee undertones. Best porter I've ever tasted!!

M - full bodied and smooth! No lingering bitterness. Perfection!

O - love it!!!! Great beer. I could drink it every day.

Poured from a bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Very dark almost black, with nice brown head. The head lasted a very long time, and left a nice coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: Pleasant, with a nice balance. Can smell the hops, coffee, and roasted malts, but none of the aromas dominate the others.

Taste: A nice mix of hops and malts, and with a hint of roasted coffee. The hops are just enough to balance the malts and provide for some complexity. There are hints of some sweetness from the malt, with a little coffee flavor. There is a nice mix of hop and malt influence in the after taste.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, and with a good body.

Overall: This is an interesting porter. It is better than I expected, and I would buy another case.
