I'm not one of those guys who decides on an overall rating and then gives the same mark on every characteristic. This beer scores very consistently. Beautiful dark hue, full creamy head, impressive notes of espresso in the nose, great flavor particularly given the 4.6% abv, and oh, the creamy body! Nicely done, 8th Wonder.

Draft. Started at 45+ degrees. Looked fine. Not a lot of coffee in the aroma, nor in the flavor. Medium to thin body didn't help, either. Wasn't bad, but I was not as impressed based on what I had heard from a couple of people. I followed this with the new Early Riser porter by Boulevard. That's a coffee porter worth trying!

Got this beer as an extra! Coffee taste and smell is very predominant. A little heavier than your average porter but still very carbonated. I actually found this very enjoyable.
