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.

Sampling a cellar temp 16 oz can poured into my snifter. The beer pours a dark coffee brown color with a dense creamy tan head of 3 cm. The foam fades to a sturdy surface layer. This layer remains through the sampling.
The aroma is lots of roasted malt and coffee ground and a bit of dark cocoa. I dont get any hops on the nose and no sense of any booze either.
The first sip reveals a silky smooth textured body with mild gentle carbonation. Easy drinking physical traits on this beer.
The flavor is roasted malt and coffee grounds with some dark chocolate and a bit of brown sugar note. I dont get any hops and no booze. The beer is very easy to drink and has a nice lingering roast character. Im glad I got a can of this and would try some other nightshift beers if given the opportunity.
