This beer poured (into a pint glass) a dark brown with a light brown 2 finger head, which required a rather vicious pour to attain. There were barely any bubbles visible, as this beer was rather light on the carbonation. The initial smell of the beer was that of coffee, roasted malts, and possibly some caramel in there. The initial taste of the brew was roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate, and finished with a roasted flavor that did not linger. The beer is medium bodied and somewhat creamy, as for the carbonation, it was very mild and worked well with the beer.
In general, this is a nice little porter, and for the price, more so. I have to say that I am impressed with Custom BrewCrafters and look forward to giving another one of their beers a try.

Poured into shaker pint
A: Almost black with hints of mahogany color when held to light. Creamy, fine and tan, 2 finger head that lasts.
S: Coffee-caramel notes with hints of toast and raisins.
T: Get through the super creamy head and taste mild coffee and cream flavors which don’t really last. Hints of caramel malt and earthy tones.
M: Mildly dense in the mouth with very little carbonation.
O: An easy drinking porter that is quite sessionable; I could easily knock back a few of these and be content. It’s not the boldest beer out there, then again they do label it a “cream porter”.

Holy hell do I like this beer. I had it at the America Hotel in Lima, NY. They have it on tap. The look of it in the glass is just great. Nice dark, thick head that stays with you for a good long while. The color is rich and dark and very pleasing to the eye. It smells amazing. Nice roasty,chocolate, sweet smell to it. I liked the first one so much I had two more. lol. Mouth feel is heavy, but it's a porter, I'd be confused if it wasn't heavy. It's nice and smooth going down. Overall I think this is a very drinkable beer, and highly recommend it. I also recommend hitting the American and having a few pints and some of their delicious food.
