3.63/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pour was deep brown with a nice foam head. Smelled of faint coffees, more malty and dark fruits though. Taste was immediately too sweet with a distinct syrupy character, dried cherries and other dark fruit. Not much coffee here. Getting a bit overwhelmed by the cherry syrupy characteristics. I was expecting a flavorful coffee porter but that's not what I tasted here. Too sweet for me.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Dark brown, almost black. Hard to produce a head. Looks kinda oily. Not much effervescence. Sediment is suspended throughout it.

S: Faint, but coffee, chocolate, and dark malt is present.

T: Coffee, dark malt. Nice and dark. Overall bitter, faint but lasting finish. Alcohol is nowhere to be found.

M: Smooth, mouth-coating, verging on oily.

O: It's pretty good, nothing that amazing, but I'm glad to have had it.

From: Binny's, Champaign, IL
Date: None, but "049 A202" stamped on bottle
Glass: Tulip

Review from notes -- opened bottle roughly a year ago.

Pours a 1cm head of dark tan foam with average to below average retention, lasting under one minute. The foam fades to a ring around the glass with an island of residuum atop the body of the beer. Lacing is present, though bordering on modest, some good, large streaks and dots, but other areas of the glass have little to nothing. Body is an opaque dark brown to black color, light bringing out ruby highlights around the edges of the beer.

Smells like a coffee doughnut at first, gradually warming up to some blackened malt with associated sweetness and perhaps a touch of cinnamon.

Taste puts this definitely in the porter style, with strong coffee bean notes alongside chocolate and semi-sweet roasted barley with a slight acrid component that is often played up in North American baltic porters. Pleasant slightly bitter coffee aftertaste, some dried fruit esters, perhaps akin to chocolate-covered prunes.

Body is medium to medium-heavy, with low to medium-low levels of carbonation. This results in a smooth and creamy mouthfeel that perhaps sits a bit too much on the palate. Ethanol heat felt just a bit in the nostrils and back of the throat near the end of a sip, but generally well hidden. Closes dry, with a sticky residue on the palate.
