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

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.

Poured from 12oz can into a tulip.

Appearance: rich, dark brown hue with a finger of frothy tan foam. Quite nice.

Smell: very rich coffee aroma up front. One thing I really like about it is that the coffee character reminds me of the kind of coffee notes you naturally find in porter, so the java is a real enhancement here. Very good.

Taste: much like the aroma, the coffee is used to good effect. I also feel like there's less vegetal hop character than you often get in robust porters, but there is still a decent bitterness for the style. I'm a big fan.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and a pretty smooth creaminess. Not at all bad.

Overall: I'm finding myself really liking this porter. The coffee serves as a great complement to the beer's fundamental character.

Maybe mine was out of date or something but there was no coffee flavor whatsoever and the mouthfeel was extremely flat, watery and thin.

Tin Roof Parade Ground Coffee Porter has a medium, beige head, a dark, but not hazy, standard brown appearance, visible clinging bubbles, and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, medium-roasted barley malt and a faint coffee smell. Taste is of the same, but the smooth coffee is more pronounced, here, than in the smell. Bitterness is present, but mild. One will also pick up some sweet creaminess, but no alcohol. Mouthfeel is light and a touch slick, and Tin Roof Parade Ground Coffee Porter finishes mostly dry, easy drinking, and rather refreshing. I would like to see them do a coffee and chicory porter. Overall, this is worth checking out.
