sampling a cellar temp 12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. The beer pours a dark coffee hue with minimal beige head foaming up about 1 cm and fading to a sturdy edge layer. The aroma is rich coffee notes and roasted malt a little sweetness but in general scent is like a fresh brewed cup of java with some brown sugar added.
First sip reveals an average body with fine fizzy carbonation that rolls across my palate. texture is smooth and leaves a bit of a sweet coating on my mouth.
Flavor is rich and malt with a bit of bakers chocolate and then dry roast coffee. No hops nor ABV on this sipping of the beer. This is a straightforward and simple beer but it is enjoyable for what it is. Enjoyable and well made especially if you like a mug of Joe in the AM.

Pours a dark brown with ruby edges and a half finger of head. There are rich coffee notes in the nose. The coffee notes are also present in the flavor profile but they considerably drop off in potency in relation to the nose. The body is thin and the finish is a touch bitter from both the roast and the hops.

Really good coffee porter, more complex than most. Lightly roast chocolate malt isn't overpowered by the coffee, rather enhanced by it. Only gets better as it warms to room temperature. Will buy again to keep on hand for sure.
