A- Pours black with a small creamy light-tan head that retains nicely, leaving behind some shirt lasting lace

S- chocolate malt with some slightly burnt coffee, some fruity esters, burnt popcorn

T- smooth chocolaty malt flavors up front, the coffee is subtle but balances nicely with the chocolate, burnt popcorn continues into the flavor, leaving a bitter finish.

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy and silky mouthfeel with a smooth finish

O- the smooth chocolate flavors were almost spot on with the added coffee, however the burnt taste detracted from it overall. I wonder if it was the actual coffee selection that caused this

A: a rich black with a creamy tan head.

S: Strong roast dominates the aroma. Bits of chocolate swirl in and out. Dark coffee and a bit of a nutty sweetness.

T: Once again, a very dark strong roast. full coffee flavor. slight earth bitterness. the finish is a tad nutty with a little bitter cocoa. bitter coffee roast finish.

M: Thin with a long bitter coffee finish.

O: A very solid offering. The mouthfeel is fantastic i think. Light and easy to drink but packing a punch with flavor. a perfect winter session porter! /85
