3.15/5 rDev -19.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Just picked this up about a week ago, finally cracked one tonight. Served in a pounder pint.
A: Nice and dark as it pours, leaves a deep brown full-finger head. Lots of bubbles, looks like it's got a good deal of carbonation.
S: You definitely pick up a lot of the coffee, but also get a fair amount of roasty malt, and a tiny little hint of chocolate, which I would expect to find in most coffee porters.
T: A little thinner than I expected, but decently tasty. I was hoping for more of the coffee to come through, but the malt flavor definitely tops it. It has a good dry flavor, but is a bit thinner than I would like.
M: Again, a little on the thin side. Nice and bubbly though.
Not a bad brew, I've certainly had better coffee porter before, but this is fine for an everyday drink.

4.05/5 rDev +3.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: ½” creamy off white head, beer is nearly black—almost no light penetration. No carbonation bubbles visible.
Aroma: Coffee, Roasted Barley, Dark Chocolate
Mouthfeel: medium to heavy bodied, moderately carbonated, rich, finish is similar to dark coffee.
Flavor: A coffee infused porter that tastes exactly as advertised. Coffee/Expresso is the dominant flavor. In addition there is some chocolate malt, toffee, and a mild hop presence. I don’t pick up a great deal of fruit flavors as the brewer advertises, maybe some orange peel and a little raisin. Overall: very good cold weather beer, I would not be able to down this one in Summer. A give this beer a solid A grade for the style.
