Tried this 4/1/14, so my review my be a lot lower than most.

A: beautiful dark brown, with nice 2 finger tan head
S: nice sweetness, tabacco smell, not getting the coffee nor chocolate that most people describe
T: taste like it smells, no coffee, very little chocolate, solid porter, little boozy
MF: great part of this beer! great carb, nice and light on the tounge
O: A pretty solid beer. doesnt taste or drink like 10%, but it is really good. I am sure it was better fresh with the huge coffee arome and flavor people describe. Would have liked to get this fresh, but what can you do. very solid though!

A - Jet black, nice 2 finger tan colored head that settles to a cap that stays and laces the glass on the way down.

S - Amazing! Coffee, chocolate, earthy burnt notes. Chocolate really pops in the nose more as it warms.

T - Balanced, of all the coffee beers I've had this one brings the most balance. Coffee and chocolate are both there, both imparting bitterness. Char notes work themselves in and a sweetness to malt body round it out. It finishes with some bitterness from the coffee and chocolate and some hop flavor that comes out in the finish.

M - Smooth, lighter in body than you'd expect, some sharp carbonation that is unexpected but works and a rather dry finish.

O - I'm going to miss this beer. Sixpoint, bring this back! This is an amazing coffee/chocolate porter that hides it's 10% punch. It's balanced, it's different and it's amazing.
