4.4/5 rDev +13.7%
Learned this brew was being discontinued and had to pick up a few 6-packs as it was one of the first craft brews I ever liked.
Slow rising and fast falling loose tan foamy head. Leaves very mild lacing... Thin, black brew.
Highly roasty, lots of caramel malt, coffee.
Nicely thin, chalky, robust and drinkable. This is definitely an easy drinker. Lots of airy roasted, chocolate, nothing over done. Zero bitter bite and is delightfully smooth with well placed sweetness. Very quaffable.
RIP Ten Pin, it's been nice knowing you. I hope you make a reappearance as a modified recipe even better!!! Nice job with Ten Pin SKA, cannot wait to see what you have coming to replace...

Poured into a chilled pint glass from a 12 oz bottle.
A: Pours almost black but with a slight orange tiny. Almost no head and with little lacing.
S: Scent of dark-roasted coffee initially but slightly more bitter. Overall pleasant smell but slightly more bitter than I anticipated.
T: Coffee is foremost on the tongue with chocolate following with a somewhat bitter finish. Espresso lingers long after finish.
M: Moderatly dense from the initial sip, but sits creamy and slightly denser after. Swallowing feels as if I were sipping a creamy, chilled espresso.
O: Very enjoyable. I personally prefer slightly less bitter porters, but this one is delicious. I don't know that I could drink more than one or two in a sitting, but it's very smooth and enjoyable.

A: Dark dark brown with ruby red highlights. Small half finger head formed when poured with a little heat behind it, Colored like a mocha and receeded fast. It looks like a coke.
S: Suddle sweetnes and mildly roasty. An overripened apple note comes out on top when given a swirl.
T: Dark roasted coffee flavor persists from the first sip to the lingering aftertaste. Sweetness that reminds me of horchata and a round bitterness that balances the whole thing out.
M: Super low carbonation and big body.
O: An enjoyable and balanced porter. I don't think I could drink more than one in a sitting, but this would pair very well with a steak or some BBQ

12 oz bottle poured nearly black but actually dark brown with orangish highlights. The tan head is moderate in size and retention. Good lacing.
S: A surprising amount of coffee in the aroma, with plenty of dark roasted malts and a hint of chocolate.
T: Roasted malts, soft coffee, toffee and a little brown sugar. Slightly sweet at the start but turns nearly bitter by the finish
M-- Light-medium body and carbonation.
O: A good porter, not overly sweet despite the apparent scarity of hops.
