Actually quite surprised its not world class but it was a very tasty coffee beer. Good Deep dark mocha great tan foam. Smell mostly coffee and taste is a good balance of coffee and milk chocolate sweetness. No bitterness or acidic taste smooth throughout. Smooth and easy to quaff back.

I almost went back for a six pack since both the flavor and price was great. Good stuff!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured black with a three finger fizzy tan head that dissipated quickly to nothing. No lacing. Only light coffee on the nose. Sweet malt and light coffee flavor. No hop bitterness. Thin body and moderate carbonation. Overall, I am not impressed and surprised this was a lackluster example of a porter. Perhaps I have an off can. I would try it again in the future.

From a can. Poured with a 1" tan foam head and a very dark brown body. Scent has a great coffee with a dash of the whisky barrel coming across nicely. Taste is a bit on the sweeter side with a rich chocolate coming across along with the coffee. Feel is creamy, smooth, and almost silky with a sweet aftertaste.

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

Canned January 20th 2020.

Pours a really dark brown/black but not pitch black, small head of foam.

Smells of coffee, dark chocolate, whiskey. Seems stronger than 6.5% abv at times.

Medium bodied with rather light carbonation.

A good one.

Coffee taste is nice, dark chocolate and whiskey follow through. Rather strong bitterness from the coffee, whiskey barrel add some sweetness,

3.77/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz can into a tulip. Canned 1/20/20.

Appearance: body appears totally black, with a thin layer of frothy tan foam atop. Lookin' good.

Smell: quite roasty and astringent, with a little bit of sweetness and a little bit of chocolate character. There is some coffee, too, along with a little bit of a green vegetal character.

Taste: plenty of coffee; the astringency and vegetal effect are more subdued in the flavor. There's still a little sweetness, and there's a bit less chocolate; it's not bad.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: this is a good beer, although the flavor dimension is a little bit thin. A little more complexity might help this beer a bit.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

12 oz can, canned on 1/20/20. Pours dark brown with a small frothy tan head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is roast chocolate malt and coffee with a little ashy earthiness.

The flavor is sweet fudgy chocolate malt with a lot of roast coffee. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, a decent coffee porter.

Brewed and canned by Great Divide but a collaboration with Tank Farm.
12 oz can from the Wall of Beer in Clemson ($2.39) with a canning date of 20 January 2020 stamped on the bottom.
Pours clear but very dark reddish-brown with a short and weak beige head.
Mild coffee and toast in the aroma with a stronger and higher quality coffee evident upon tasting. Excellent balance of coffee and malts as well as of sweet and bitter.
Overall: excellent version of the style.
