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Maybe mine was out of date or something but there was no coffee flavor whatsoever and the mouthfeel was extremely flat, watery and thin.

Had this one while visiting New Orleans for Cantillon Zwanze Day! Served from tap into a nonic. Poured a deep red-brown with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and coffee. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, coffee, and powdered chocolate. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. I’m a pretty big fan of coffee porters and this one was definitely a good example of the style. Very nice notes of coffee and sweet chocolate going on here that made it rather easy to drink and very nicely balanced. A well done brew that I wish I had steady access to, if you do, I suggest you take advantage of it.

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.
