I tried this at Beer Fest on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. It poured an opaque dark with thin tan head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is coffee. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with coffee influence. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a decent porter.

Looks and smells alright with a decent coffee nose. Taste doesn't follow though. Yes, I know that the abv isn't that high, but I expected a lot more flavor than this thin and watery beer.

Pours brown. Foamy, short, tan head fades fast to a faint ring.

Smells coffee, roast malt, chocolate and hints of vanilla.

Tastes coffee, roast malt, light chocolate and light vanilla. Followed by a light fruitiness. Finish is dry with a roasty and earthy bitterness. Lighter medium body and creamy medium carbonation

Pours a ruby-hued mahogany with 2 fingers of khaki colored head. Dissapointing head retention & lacing

S: Coffee, roastyness & a little smokeyness, great nose

T: Coffee, vanilla, roasty dryness up front. Mpre coffee & roastyness as this warms, the vanilla sweetness gives way to dryness. Finishes roasty with a little lactic twang & coffee grinds

MF: Medium body, restrained carbonation, body thins a bit as it warms, still solid

Drinks easy, the best beer I've had from these guys

Poured from a can to a pint glass. Dark mahogany colored when held up to the light. Not much head at all. Smell was very sweet, almost like my favorite coffee stout, but was a little disappointed in the taste, which wasn't bad, just more like French roasted, bitter coffee. Slippery feel in the mouth. Strong ashy/toasty aftertaste. A good coffee drinkers porter.
