12 oz bottle served in a ansifter.
Pour is blackish and opaque with a bubbly head that soon reduces to a thick ring.

Aroma: coffee dominates and smells more like brewed coffee than beans. Enough dark roast to show even with the strong coffee.

Flavor: black coffee and dark roasted grains in about equal measure. Both linger on in the aftertaste where there's some (unobjectionable) char as well.

O: medium+ body; Properly carbonated and fairly smooth.

Light body but full flavor. A perfect after dinner sipper.

Pours a dirty dark brown color with a minimal beige head that settles into a light ring. 3.5

The aroma is toasted pumpernickel and cold roast coffee. Real nice coffee aroma. Bitter chocolate notes. There is a bit of a lemony twang that you find in traditional porters. 4.25

The malt has a nice roast flavor but its a bit thin. The coffee flavor is quite good, deep roast. Again, there is that lemony twang found in porters. 4

The feel is thin, a bit watery for a porter. Soft carbonation. Light roast bitterness throughout the palate. 3.25

A very enjoyable coffee porter. It needs more body to smooth out the feel and round out the flavor profile. 3.85
