look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Arrives a dark brown with ruby highlights. Small tan head with little retention.
Smell is malt, toffee, coffee and vanilla. Decently balanced.
Taste is strongly coffee then toasted malt and nut. Balance sucks, more like some spilled beer in a cup of coffee (which I hate) than anything else.
Body is medium at best with a light effervescence. Drying finish with a clean (not desired) finish. Body is weak and way too much coffee with no sweetness. Too bad. This one really missed the mark.

Brownish black with a beige head.

Light coffee, with milky undertones, not that far off from the inspiration really.

However, it's a bit too light and fizzy, and sometimes gives an impression of root beer.

Leans a little more towards a sweet/milk stout. Good beer nonetheless.

On tap at Cycle. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Black body. Medium off white head. Thick collar. Great retention.

Smell - Roasted malt. Coffee. Lactose.

Taste - Sweetness from the lactose immediately. Coffee quickly overwhelms it, but the sweetness persists. Some roasted malt. Lactose finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium light for a porter. Flavored by the adjuncts mostly.

Overall - Too much lactose for me.

Smells of sweet coffee, crystals, sweet malt. Very much on the sweet side. Smells like someone overdid it with the granulated sugar in a damn Starbucks. Not bad.

Yeah tastes pretty much the same. Granulated sugar and McDonald's coffee.

Mouthfeel is appropriate, good carbonation, just like McDonald's does it.

Pretty okay.

7.1/10
