finally a chance to review this one as it is my third of this so far.. thanx to smutty33 for pickin this up in MA as we can't get it in CT. Okay so this is Troegs but it's definitely not a nugget nectar... but it's ok...
A - poured into a tulip and it had a nice inch head that dissipated rather quickly.. but it leaves behind decent lacing.. it's dark and maybe a little light but it looks ok.
S - a small subtle smell of coffee in there.. it's not overpowering but rather fair. a nice porter smell. this smells like more of a porter than a stout.
T - light bodied and very smooth. i do taste some coffee and chocolate notes. they are fair. this is not going to clobber you with flavor, but the flavor is subtle.. i think this will be good for a beginner. and it's great on a hot summer day.
M - Carbonation is good. it is also light but there is a little velvetty creaminess. it's not a heavy, sticky feel...
D - It's very sessionable so I give it a decent mark here. It is not a nugget nectar so i am a tad disappointed that this flavor isn't a bit more pronounced.. but this is good.. i wouldn't seek it out but i drank the three i have no problem.. if you are a beginner or you just like stuff not so heavy on the palate then i believe you will love this..

Having a beer for breakfast?, This is the one. If you like coffee and a kick ass beer, this will suit you just fine. Medium head when poured and dissipates rather fast. Flavor is bold and finishes with just the right amount of somewhat bitter coffee flavor. Taste remains in mouth for quite awhile...but....so does coffee. High alcohol content but well balanced!
