Bottle pour at the pre-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and coffee aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and coffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid aromas and flavors all around.

This poured out as a nice rich black color with a brown head on top. The smell has coffee galore spewing from it, but its also got hints of some kind of creaminess too. Really interesting. The taste is loaded with coffee and some sweetness in the finish. The feel was pretty dense but very smooth. Overall I really enjoyed this, it was perfect even having it the morning after a rather large tasting the night before.

Appearance: Pours a fudge brown color with an impressive mocha head; excellent retention and plenty of lacing

Smell: Coffee dominant, with milk chocolate, black bread and roast underneath

Taste: Black bread, milk chocolate and some roast lead off, with the coffee building to dominance in the mid-palate; after the swallow, an espresso fruity bitterness kicks in and lingers into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A fine beer and among the top coffee beers I have consumed

Thanks, bbpro47, for the opportunity

Served on-tap at Texas Arizona in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with some dark brown and garnet red highlights as well as some very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a creamy and foamy dense dark tan head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to heavy amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts with moderate to strong aromas of cocoa and coffee (freshly roasted beans).

T: Moderate flavors of dark roasted malts with some moderate to heavy amounts of cocoa and dark chocolate. After that, there are strong flavors of freshly roasted coffee and just a touch of milk stout (lactose) sweetness. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades pretty quickly.

M: Moderate to heavy bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: This beer is dangerously easy to drink with a nice depth and complexity of flavor and extremely well hidden alcohol (is this really 9.2% ABV). Very enjoyable and definitely one I would recommend.

From 04/17/15 notes. Had a small pour of this once but drank half a bottle, poured into a snifter.

Pours a deep dark brown color, almost black, with one finger of dark tan head and low to moderate carbonation evident.

Amazing nose, super coffee grinds-ish, dark chocolate, espresso, milk, cream, vanilla, roasted malts and coffee, and toasted malts. Coffee dominates and smells great.
Taste has more dark chocolate dark roasted malts, Burnt and toasted malts, chalk, and light cream. Coffee is there in the taste but much lighter. Medium body and low to moderate carbonation

Overall a very good coffee porter with an amazing nose. Taste is lighter but the nose is perfect. Definitely worth checking out, wish the taste had a little more to it.
