Canned 12/21/17.

A nice chocolate brown color with a sandy beige head of 2 fingers, receding to 1/2 a finger leaving big wallops of lace.

Aromas of fruity coffee and tootsie roll; some lactose.

The flavor starts with the fruity and black coffee, but fades quickly to pure tootsie roll and chocolate syrup. The sweetness fades to dry cocoa mix and lingering roastiness.

Feel is creamy and roasty at the same time, a good balance. Nice electric carbonation buzzing underneath, a good roasty finish.

Overall, a really good coffee-chocolate porter. It's perfectly sweet without being over-sweet; implements coffee mildly and chocolate flows over top. Very nice.

This is my all-time favorite beer, and I don't even like coffee. It's phenomenal.

A: Coffee black with a half inch creamy head (poured into pint glass)

S: Nutty, toasty, freshly roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate

T: Notes of fresh dark roast coffee combined with a hint of dark chocolate. The beer finishes a touch creamy which really balances the beginning of the beer out.

M: Medium bodied porter.

O: This beer is a staple for me. The body seems to be similar to your more traditional english porters, however the coffee and chocolate malts really take this beer to a heavenly place. This beer may even work better as a stout.
