Dark brown pour with tan head that didnt stay long. Medium body, mouthfeel was very pleasant. Aroma was very pleasant with chocolate and coffee notes. Taste was also of chocolate and coffee with a slight fruit finish. Drinkability was very good on this one as well. I liked it a lot.

Pours black with a small head.
Nose shows sweet toast and nutty malt along with prominent chocolate notes.
Flavours include more soft roast, toasty malt and nutty hints along with a nice bit of sweetness.

I poured this from the bottle into a mug.

It looked great going in and had a good head, but it disappeared very quickly.

It smelled the part.

Upon first sip, I was a little disappointed. I picked up on a lot of carbonation and hardly any hint of mocha. I found it moderately bitter for a porter and not sweet at all, which is what I expected. However, I enjoyed it more as I drank it.

Could be a little creamier....I like a thick creamy beer.

Overall, it was a very good beer, and easy to finish, but if you really like porters but are looking for something a bit different, look elsewhere. This is just another good porter.

Nice and black with just the tiniest bit of light showing through. It has a tan head that starts off tall, but quickly fades to a thin layer that stays with you.

The aroma is sweet. Almost reminds me of brown sugar.

My expectations for taste (judging by the aroma) were blown away. It starts off slightly bitter then follows that up with many complex flavors. Roastedness followed by coffee flavors delight the palate.

Wonderfully carbonated and chewy.

This is a highly drinkable porter. If you like coffee style porters, give this one a try. Although its coffee taste is more subtle than others, itÂ’s definitely worth a try.

Pours a dark brown with a light brown coffee colored head. The smell was full of coffee and mocha with some sweetness, almost a toffee scent coming through. The taste was very rich with coffee and dark chocolate before finishing with a surprising amount of hops to make a lighter finish to the beer.
