4.2/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - pours an opaque black color with a chocolaty head that disappears rather quickly

S - nose consists of heaps and heaps of roasted, nutty coffee with dark chocolates also in the mix

T - opens up with bitter, chocolaty, burnt coffee notes. From there, these flavors separate and take turns being the dominant flavor on the palate. Kind of crazy how the flavors begin together, separate, and then come back together before ultimately giving way to roasted coffee.

M - mouthfeel is full and complements the beer well

D - overall, this is a really nice coffee porter. To me, this is one of the better ones out there, especially at the price point and availability (if you live in the distribution area). If you like coffee and like stouts, this is a perfect marriage of the two beverages.

4.05/5  rDev +3.6%
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.
