First had: on tap at Coffee District, Delray Beach, FL

Dark brown-black pour with a small tan head. Aroma of dark malts, coffee, used tea bags. Taste was similar, definitely a lot of astringency going on here, light notes of roasty malts and used coffee grounds, a small sugar sweetness, thin earthy hops detectable in the finish. Body seemed thinned out and watery, just a really messy and unpleasant beer all over.

12oz can, served in a snifter glass.

Pours a dark cola brown. Not black. Two finger thick offwhite head, a bit long in terms of retention, fair bit of lacing. Not black, definitely coffee brown. Smells of spicy espresso, touch of grainy roast, a little bit of dark chocolate, not too much else. Flavour is a slightly metallic, bitter espresso, not much of the base porter is still around. It mostly comes across in the aftertaste as a mild dark chocolate presence. Mouthfeel is thin, certainly not very substantial, a bit overcarbonated, not terrible with a slightly spicy and bitter finish.

A coffee beer for people that like coffee for sure.

Just shy of pitch black, but you can see a dark red/purple when you hold it up to light. On the pour I got a small off white head that fades to just a rim of head left throughout the drink.

Overall the smell is coffee through and through with a slight malt smell to it.

For me it starts off with a good bitterness, and then you get the strong coffee flavor with a smoother vanilla finish that almost left me with a warmth in my throat, but really just a bit of coffee flavor left on the palate. It's a lighter beer which made it easy to drink.

My can said it was 5.7% abv, but this says 5.9. Maybe that's off the tap. Either way, people that enjoy iced coffee would be the main target for this beer.
