A: I always pour soft so I don't notice this well, it's dark and beautiful but I poured it with no head

S: Great coffee smell deep rich inviting you to taste it

T: Unlike a lot of coffee beers this one lets you taste the base beer which I enjoy so much you get that sweet roast slight burnt just a hint of chocolate from a great porter then you taste coffee afterwards.

M: very good body not stupid thick like an amazing porter but what you expect from a porter very solid

O: I'm supremely pleased about this beer I'm sick of coffee beers being pure coffee then nothing else this one is like hey there is a base beer here check out it's amazing taste and then a zap of coffee

A-black with a dark tan colored head. good lacing

S-actually a fairly good scent of coffee with just a small touch of hops. its a good strong scent.

T-comes in with a really full flavored taste of coffee and slowly transitions in to a taste that reminds me of straight coffee bean. it has just a touch of bitterness to it.the after-taste is good and strong of the same flavor. very robust this is.

M-smooth medium carbonation with a crisp finish

O-i picked this out because it was the darkest beer i could find at a local beer shop, and because it was only $1.50 for the bottle to go. i honestly expected nothing but an average porter. what i got was a world class porter willing to challenge any other porter head on. this is robust and tasty, something i could drink a lot of.

A: The beer pours brown into my Founders Brewing Company goblet and builds up a nice light brown head. The retention and lacing are pretty good.

S: The smell is full of malts, chocolate, and fresh coffee. Coffee is right up front and is surprisingly strong.

T: The coffee comes first and is followed by a sweet chocolate and slight caramel maltiness. The roastiness is not overbearing, it's balanced nicely with the sweetness of the chocolate. The finish is insanely dry. I really enjoyed the taste.

MF/D: Medium body, carbonation is a bit low, dries the mouth out completely, making you continue to take sips. I thought the drinkability was pretty good for a porter.

O: I really enjoyed this. Balanced, tasty, full of coffee just like I hoped it would be.

Grabbed a pint of this last night at the Rivertowne for 4.25 Whoot local!

A - Pours a solid black amber. You can see through it but just barley. The thin 1/4 inch layer of mocha colored head left a nice bit of sticky lacing.

S - Not as strong as the name implies but I do get soft tones of roast and chocolate. Kind of like a cappuccino!

T - I was glad it had a very balanced taste of coffee without being too bitter. Roast flavors are the best part of this beer which are light to medium tones and I do get a distinct chocolate but not bittersweet or bakers. More cocoa but not dry. Didn't really pick up any hops but that's what I like in my porters, more malt!

M - Drank with a nice medium body. Sweet but not cloying. I sipped it pretty quickly.

Overall it's not the best coffee beer I had but ranks up there with balance. Not extreme or immensely flavorful like other coffee beers but light and flavored enough to have a six pack. Would be happy to pick up a six pack if I found it at a local bottle shop. Hook a brotha up!

If you pour it right you will get a very nice creamy head. The taste is complex as it goes through your pallate meaning it changes from the beers taste to the coffee taste while infusing the IBU bitterness across the swirl. Not bad doc, not bad ... I am a fan.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

T - Pours a dark chocolate brown, a little flat but nearly completely opaque. About a finger and a half of tan head quickly builds and has a decent amount of retention.

S - The aroma is full of freshly pressed coffee, bold and roasty, but also smooth and not acrid. There is also a rich chocolate which is surprisingly potent. I am also discerning a bit of flaked oats as well, but I am not sure if it actually had any in it or not.

T - The flavors are initially a sharp kick of espresso and a slight amount of roast, but it quickly turns quite chocolaty and enjoyably sweet. The roast isn't overbearing and is actually fairly light, which helps it continue to be smooth and easily transition from coffee to chocolate to hops. The hops are earthy and nutty, lending the entire flavor profile to mesh comfortably with each other.

M - Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with good carbonation. A little bit thin at times, the mouthfeel suffers occasionally from a watery feel after the initial malts, but as this is a porter, I can't complain too much.

D/O - Drinkability is moderately high. This is one of the smoothest coffee beers I've come across while still maintaining a potent espresso boost. That, combined with the sweet, rich malts gives this a very flavorful initial taste that lingers well into the finish.
