On tap at Applebee’s in Dover. Pours a jet black ebony hue with maximum frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of cocoa and chocolate. Similar overall flavor profile.

How have I never rated this delight of a coffee porter? In any case, this is from a batch dated September 21, 2018, that I thought was their best yet. A touch of green on the nose, but commingled with plenty of the good stuff: dry roasted grains, light malt, earthy coffee, and a little baker's chocolate. No issue with the flavors once they hit the palate, just an exceptional balance between the base porter and the selected coffee.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 9/21/2018. Pours opaque dark brown/black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, dark roasted coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, nuts, and toasted dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of vanilla, molasses, dark fruit, smoke, char, herbal, floral, grass. pepper, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. A bit too fruity/yeasty aromas, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malts, coffee, light-moderate fruity yeast, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, dark roasted coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, nuts, and toasted dark/brown bread; with light notes of vanilla, molasses, dark fruit, smoke, char, herbal, floral, grass. pepper, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal, floral, grassy, spicy hop; and roast/char bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, dark roasted coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, nuts, toasted dark/brown bread, vanilla, molasses, light smoke/char, herbal, floral, grass. pepper, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, coffee, and light fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a nice roast hop bitter/sweet balance; and no cloying/acrid flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/char bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Minimal warming alcohol for 6.8%. Overall this is an awesome English coffee porter. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, coffee, and light fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Not overly roasty. Very clean and rich English malts and perfectly balanced fruity/nutty coffee complexity; mild fruity yeast and earthy hop balance against sweetness. A really enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. Liked it a lot more than the base beer.

12oz can pour into a snifter.

Black with a mocha head. Spotty lacing. Coffee, cocoa and light hops. Something is slightly off on the palate. I get a malt ball taste that seems out of place. It gets distracting as I progress through the beer. Mouthfeel is good for the style. Well made but just doesn't appeal to my palate.

Pretty good. This is not my go to style and it didn't do enough to blow me away and propel itself into contention with Masthead's coffee stout but it was enjoyable. I would drink it again.
