2014 vintage; drank 6/6/14 on draft @ Fischman's. Dark Matter provided the coffee beans.

Brown/black hue.

Dark khaki head; thick lace.

An espresso blast in the nose, with strong chili pepper notes as well. Bold!

Medium thick mouthfeel.

The flavor is rich coffee roastiness up front, a hint of milk & a pepper heat finish. Tasty.

On tap cask pour. I wasn't a fan of regular Eugene but coffee plus cask had me intrigued. Look is plenty dark medium head that died quickly. Smell is nice but I can't really identify the elements. Taste is fine, some coffee there and standard porter malts. Feel is quite creamy and flat due to the cask pour. Overall I'm glad I tried it but not rushing back

this one was served on cask at the brewery, and is interesting compared to even the other coffee one. without the whiskey barrel, its a much different sensation, and with the cask, the mouthfeel is already a totally different animal. the coffee too is much different. i think this is aged on just the beans rather than blended with already brewed coffee. probably less extraction without the heat and steeping process, but i like the more subtle, less acidic, still caffeine loaded attributes of this one. the beer is more shiny in appearance than the others too, still with a decent head on it, but slicker looking, almost greasy. smells like the base porter more than the coffee, and in the taste, the coffee is pretty faint. it seems almost like a stale, or more rightly older, version of the base beer, and its not necessarily an improvement. the bright edges of the malt are faded, and the coffee brings a little more bitterness than it needs. without the whiskey sweetness to balance, its a little much. that said, its super smooth and easy drinking, and has a great coffee finish after the swallow. i think though, that it was my least favorite of the four eugene variants i had at the brewery this weekend.
