look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Dark brown and murky with a ruby tinge. A quarter finger of beige head.

Smells of fresh roasted coffee, perhaps a hint of smokiness or bacon, and I can only imagine what eggs smell like.

The taste is of fresh roasted coffee, hints of roasted, toasty dark chocolate, and a little sweetness. Predominately fresh coffee and a light sweetness.

Medium to thick body with moderate carbonation giving it a smooth mouth feel.

Got in Petaluma, Ca, drinking in Redding, Nov 27, 2018. Really good coffee porter.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

16oz can poured into snifter…

Look:
Soy sauce color, with very minimal light getting through. Had a very small mocha head that dissipated.

Smell and Taste:
Toasted malt and burnt coffee. Dark chocolate. Some blueberry and hint of Kahlua. Slight booze at end. Slight soy saucey sourness from burnt malt.

Mouthfeel:
Full body and viscous. Slick, with some fizz.

Overall:
Been wanting to try this and finally found in a single can ($5.99, Los Angeles). This is nitpicky, but I desired more in the mouthfeel and flavor profile/complexity. I recently tried Smog City’s coffee porter and that has become my gold standard. I love Pizza Port (Swamis and Ponto) so have high expectations from them. I would get this again, but it’s not a beer I’d seek out.

Appearance - The beer poured black with a small mocha head.

Smell - The nose was like straight chocolate malt.

Taste - The coffee notes at the front are more bitter than I remember. There was some mapley sweetness, char, burnt sugar. The bitterness of the coffee is just a bit much.

Mouthfeel - The feel of a porter was smooth with modest carbonation.

Overall - I remember liking this more the first time I had it.

A very good coffee porter. Pours dark brown/black with a little bit of a brown head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate and so is the taste. Feel is silky with medium carbonation.

Canned 03/01/18

Appearance - Pours dark cola brown with a tan, near two-finger width head. Fair retention results in a thin, broken layer of suds with a thin ring around the edge of the glass. No lacing, but none expected.

Smell - Roast coffee, caramel, dark chocolate.

Taste - Follows the nose. Coffee roast, dark and milk chocolate upfront and throughout. Cream and caramel and a nice touch of sweetness mid-taste that rides into the finish. Aftertaste lingers long with mild coffee, chocolate and caramel.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with fair carbonation. Smooth, slightly creamy texture makes this an easy drinker with a slightly dry finish.

Overall - Pretty damn good coffee porter with nice overall balance. One I passed on when I saw it initially, so I'm glad my dude C hooked me up.

Picked up a 16 oz mason jar from the Craft Beer Quick Stop on 6-21-18 for $3.00 ($6.00 minus the 50% off for the 2nd jar).

Beer poured cola brown with a solid tan head that dissipated pretty quickly.

Nose is fresh coffee forward over toasted and roasted malts.

Taste is a nice roasted, chocolate, and toasted malt base with a nice addition of coffee that compliments the base. Hop base is very adequate as this big beer is well balanced and not sweet. Well done.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.

Overall this is quite the nice beer that i would definitely seek out in the future!

Clear brown ale with a one inch brown colored head.

Smells sweet and of chocolate with the glass on the table and nowhere near my nose. Lots of patent malt scent. Sweet coffee and chocolate are the strongest scents. Smells bitter with lots of toasted grain scent. Scent of toffee candy. Alcohol not noticeable.

Starts out bittersweet and a little savory. Lots of patent malt taste and a fairly burnt taste. After you adjust to the bitterness level dark roasted coffee comes through with a wisp of ash. Chocolate and toffee flavors but this tastes very much like Starbucks Coffee.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a tasty and strong Porter.

16 oz can poured into snifter canned on 3/1/18.

A: Tiny bubbles khaki to slightly mocha head that is gone in a flash. Body is a nice deep only black, with just a little light escaping.

S: lots of coffee and maybe a little bit of burnt malts. Mostly just coffee.

T: lots of strong coffee flavor, mingled inthere is some light sweetness, some bakers chocolate, and a little nuttiness.

M: medium to fuller, I’d like it to be thicker, but for a “Porter” it’s not bad.

O: this is a solid coffee beer the coffee is in your face, but you still get to enjoy the underlying beer.

one heck of an airport find by my girlfriend right here, a nice strong coffee brew preflight, tough to beat! i cant believe how dark this one is, near black and rather viscous, with a really intense dark roasted barley nose and flavor, bitter as can be, and exacerbated even more there by all the coffee, which is anything but subtle and locked in an entertaining power struggle with the roasted barley, its super robust, almost over the top, as much coffee in a beer as i have known, and pretty straight up to my palate, nothing fancy or overly high end, just good strong drip or cold brew, heavy handedly added. there is a hint of smoke to this, permanent marker, a mild raisin sweet not trying to push through, and a charcoal high carbon thing going on, i could imagine a whiskey barrel really cranking this one up. for how intense the coffee and roast is, the alcohol is extremely well disguised here, which almost catches me off guard, nowhere in the thick body and long flavor trip does it get boozy or hot at all, really unexpected there. smooth but also a little sharp, really sturdy and certainly a pretty evolved can of beer, maybe too robust for the casual dark beer drinker, but we both thought it was stellar. still havent had much from these guys but have been impressed every time... mega caffeine hit on this...

not to many brewers go this far to add all these flavors - and not a bad commination , get a little bit of the bacon taste , more of the coffee - great beer

Pours dark brown but it isn't wading into black stout territory. 1/2" lighter brown head. Aromatics pop hard on the diner coffee, and I don't mean that condescendingly, it has that warm diner breakfast feel to it and all for the better. This isn't that lifestyle organic free trade bullshit in the city with a laptop, this is trucker hat grand slam breakfast tier comfort beer.

Taste drops lots of roasted malt and coffee the entire time. Hides the alcohol extremely well, this is a toned down Dusk Til Dawn but without the double digit alcohol or cease and desist letter from corporate Hollywood. Mild smoke/cooking thing on the back end, I dig it man, this is delicious stuff. This is a great answer to Founders breakfast stout. I thought my cans were 8% though, but either way, this is like breakfast stout with a lighter base and more coffee, but less chocolate. An absolute top tier morning tailgate and fishing beer. Buy or fry weenbags. This stuff is very drinkable despite its hugeness.
