3.3/5  rDev -12%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served on-tap at the Brass Rail into a standard pint.

A - Pours pitch black with a small half finger khaki colored head leaving light lace down the glass.

S - Smells of dark roasted coffee, earthy hops, chocolate, and the ever present dark roasted malt. The coffee is a little bitter, combining with the hops to almost for a black ale.

T - Starts off with a big dose of bitter coffee slowly giving way to a mix of dark roasted malt, chocolate, bitter hops, and some light fruitiness. The finish is mostly dark roast with some light bitterness, lingering on the pallet for some time.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Roasty, hoppy, feel that lingers on the pallet.

O - This one is OK. Like a cheaper version of Troegs Dead Reckoning honestly. I didn't have a problem finishing it but I won't be rushing out to get another.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of coffee,some roasted malts. Taste is very strong on the coffee, some malts, a touch of hops is present. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall while not a bad beer, the strengh of the coffee was a bit to much for me, however coffee lovers will probably enjoy this beer.

pours a chestnut brown with light edges and a fuzzy bubbly light brown head. Nose is fairly nice, chocolate fudge and cake batter with a nice rich roared coffee note subtly accompanying. Taste is a bit watery and much more roasted with a tinge of burnt coffee. Still a decent cakey type quality but much more muddled than the nose. Body is lighter with a gentle to low carbonation and dry chocolaty finish that lingers a bit.

Look at that label! Anyway, This beer poured out as a dark black color with a brown head on top. Some thing retention on top without much lacing at all. The smell of the beer is chocolaty, roasted and has plenty of coffee on the nose. The taste of the beer is nicely balance, it's got some sweet grains in there along with the coffee to bitter it up a little. The mouthfeel of the beer was well carbonated, it go smoother as you drank it. Overall it's not a bad beer but I've had better coffee beers.

Pours very dark brown. Has a glazey coarse foam that remains as a thin layer. Light seeps through around the edges.

Rugged malty notes with prevalent coffee, sweetness, dark caramel/molasses, and a hint of vanilla. Still, rather grainy. Definitely on the sweeter side.

Coffee is muted and bitter. The bitterness is accretuated by earthy hops and acrid burnt grain. Very malty and on the rich side. Sweetness is like a remnant grain sugar. Finishes with intense earthiness (almost mucky) and medium in length with some hop flavor carryover.

Has decent body. Carbonation is medium-to-mild. Late sizzle saves it. Otherwise, it feels a little flat.

Very average porter. Coffee isn't big and tasty as I would have liked.
