Hot dog we have ourselves another hot one! And this time it's from Pizza Port. Sizzle sizzle sizzle, what's that smell? PP have cooked themselves up another good one - and here its a coffee porter! Damn thang in sexy all around like Emily Ratajkowski in a onesie - we are talking fly. Thing stays sexy down to the nose - smellin' all coffee and porter like. And then we get to the taste...the taste! Smoother than R Kelly singing a symphony, this one bedazzles. Rich, luscious chocolate and coffee that will set any player straight for days! If Pizza Port is cooking breakfast, Raul says: yes please!

I've been assured that no Bacon or Eggs were harmed in the making of this beer.

It's no secret that I'm a huge Pizza Port fanboy. So when I finally got to have another crack at this mouth watering gem, I took full advantage.

Bacon & Eggs pours almost exactly as you'd want an imperial porter to. Clean, dark, smooth. It's stained ebony body is accompanied by light induced auburn glimmers, and a wavy and creamy lightly tanned head. Thin bubbles stay around the edge of the glass along with a thin and fading island floating around. Only little specs remain clung to the glass.

If you're not a fan of coffee in beer, read no further. Having said that, this is sublime. A perfect high quality medium roast coffee converges on chocolate and freshly baked biscuits. There's even a faint suggestion of maple syrup in the background, but that could be a subliminal considering its breakfast imagery.

But wow, is this thing dominant on coffee. For me, that's absolutely fine. A perfect morning substitute for the real thing. Like breakfast in a can, this also boasts medium toasted white bread, with a chocolate croissant and a drab of berry jam on the side. I'd say the only thing I'm not a huge fan of, which may be appropriate anyhow, is the light presence of metallic/mineral water in the finish.

It feels a bit thin, despite a perceived initial creaminess and lack of carbonation. It's exceptionally well balanced however, with a wonderful full roasted character from beginning to end. Alcohol warmth comes through right off the bat, but is not distracting in the least.

Pizza Port, I love you. I miss you. Your beers are dear to me, and this one is no exception. This is a great coffee infused beer. I wish I had bought even more to share with everyone. Or perhaps I did, and I'll just be selfish instead and drink them myself. Cheers.

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.

Delicious coffee Porter with a huge aroma, nice coffee punch, semi soft mouthfeel. Very similar to Parish Reve, with a little milder Coffee. Glad I got a sixer.

Can poured into a Russian River Brewing Co pub glass

A: Pours deep dark brown with a slight ruby hue and a frothy mocha brown head that settles to a firm creamy layer and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Roasty goodness, coffee, dark chocolate, a hint of smoke, earthy spicy notes, and caramel sweetness.

T: Roasty, smooth coffee and rich dark chocolate, slightly earthy, a touch of spice, rounded out with sweet cream and caramel sweetness.

M: Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, a little creaminess, hides its % beautifully.

O: Absolutely delicious. Would make Ron Swanson proud.
