L - It pours pitch black. It is topped with an inch of tan head with little lacing.

S - The smell is great. I get dark chocolate, coffee, and vanilla.

T - The taste is much the same; however, the coffee is muted and it is a bit cloying. It is sweet with chocolate and vanilla.

F - Medium to thin for a porter

O - It is a tasty beer. It started out great, but eventually came across as sweet. I like it for a single serving.

Wow, holy coffee Batman! Great roasted coffee flavor and bitterness, like a Starbucks bold poured into a stout. Very tasty indeed.

Black porter with pepperish fresh smell, the taste had a dash of pepper not overwhelming taste. This was an underwhelming beer. Looking forward to other sixpoint beers but this disappointed

Beautiful, solid black brew with a firm tan head. Great retention and nice lacing.

Aroma is all espresso and roasted barley - burnt malts and dark cacao. Almost no fruitiness sneaks through.

Flavor is heavily influenced by the coffee, which is by far the dominant flavor. Smooth, creamy coffee, roasted malts, very dark cacao, and a bit of dark fruit (not enough to even slightly sour the flavor). Delicious.

Smooth, oily feel; right in the medium/medium-full range. No alcohol heat at all; minor sting; fairly lively while silky. Slightly dry finish.

This is a fantastic coffee porter. It is unabashed in what it's aiming for, and it nails the target perfectly.
