Nitro at the brewpub. Coffee and smooth mouthfeel. Oily chocolate. Very drinkable. Works on nitro. Hits the spot as a coffee porter. Something to have as a regular beer.

On nitro tap at the brewpub. Served in a standard shaker glass.

Appearance: Color is a dark brownish amber. Big three finger beige head with decent retention. Lots of creamy lacing.

Smell: A very roasty and creamy dark malt driven aroma with big hints of coffee, toast, and cream. Dark roasted malt with upfront hints of coffee beans, toasted bread, chocolate, and cream along with some milk, vanilla, biscuit, caramel, nuts, and yeast. Hop presence is very light. A pretty good roasty aroma.

Taste: Like the nose hints at, a nicely roasty, creamy, and sweet dark malt forward taste with big notes of coffee, chocolate, and cream. Dark roasted barley malt with upfront notes of roasted coffee beans, chocolate, toasted bread, biscuit, caramel, yeast, and nuts along with sweet notes of vanilla, cream, and milk. Subtle presence of dark fruit. Very little hops. A pretty nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium to high level of carbonation. Very creamy, silky, and smooth with a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A very good take on a coffee Porter. Good roasty coffee and chocolate notes with a nice boost of cream from the nitro.
