Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at The Independent. Served in a pint glass.

A: Dark brown, not quite opaque, with nearly a finger's worth of tan head. Low visible carbonation.

S: Burnt coffee, lactose creaminess and some sweet dark malts. But my overall impression is that of black bitter coffee - but not in an unappetizing way.

T: Follows the nose. Roasted coffee malt, creamy lactose, some sweetness from the malt to balance. I think there's a small amount of hop bitterness near the swallow, but it might be bitterness from the coffee. Roasted malt bitterness in the hang.

M: Thin body for a porter, but seems rich at the same time. Low alcohol presence, low to medium carbonation.

O: If you don't like some big coffee flavors I would suggest skipping it altogether. It's not exactly a complex beer. But, I drink my coffee black every morning (irony in relation to the beer's name notwithstanding), and quite enjoyed it.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours dark translucent brown with copper glints. Small off-white head.
S: Smell of freshly ground coffee, roasted malts, caffee latte, prune, grape, complex, rich, wonderful!
T: Taste is dominated by coffee, toasted malts and cream. Dark chocolate comes on a second step. Finishes on molasses, brown sugar, prune. Complex despite the low ABV.
M: Medium bodied, well carbonated, easy drinking.
O: A light but complex and flavorful porter. It gives the impression of drinking an iced caffe lattee with something more. An other Cream and Sugar Please, please!

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.

A cream sugar porter. Big lactose, very good creaminess and milk. Black and lacey. Above average mouthfeel. Unique tasting, a sipper and a little sour in the finish. I think more chocolate presence would help. Most interesting on tap tonight at Peg's.

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.

First had: on tap at Peg's, Gulfport, FL

Listed as a sweet porter brewed with chocolate and coffee.

Dark brown-black pour, opaque but lighter around the edges, with a dense finger of off-white head that retained well and left some lacing on the glass. Fairly roasty aroma, smooth coffee, dark malts, and not much else to speak of. Taste was similar...this was a porter, but Peg's gets a nice full body out of their beers, making this almost comparable to a stout. Dark malts, smooth coffee, pretty much no bitterness at all, a nice creaminess provided by the lactose addition, and a good amount of semi-sweet chocolate coming in about mid-palate. Silky full body, coffee was not too strong or overbearing, which was nice. Great beer overall, and quite sessionable at 4.9%ABV.
