Poured from growler it produced a 1/4 inch beige head. Beer color is like a dark cola.

The aroma is very strong of coffee, with a little burnt toast.

The taste was heavy on the coffee, but still smooth. Other flavors were of malt, and caramel. No noticeable hop bitterness.

Nice beer! Don't think I could drink a lot in a sitting, due to the strong coffee taste though. Wanted a growler of their chocolate milk stout, but they were out at the time...that was very good on tap.

Had a crowler canned 10 days ago.

L: A deep dark brown pour with ruby highlights produces as persistent, lacy light tan foam cap.

S: Moderate coffee and grain aromas with no appreciable hop showing through, a trace of dark dried fruit. No burnt or harsh aromas.

T: A mild sweet caramel supports rich and long lingering coffee flavors. A mild bitterness with nothing burnt or harsh. Well balanced.

F: Creamy smooth with medium to medium full body and medium carbonation.

O: A well balanced easy to drink coffee porter.

Tan head with nice lace. Color is dark brown/black.

Flavor profile is massive fresh coffee/espresso. Wow, what a coffee bomb. A nice roast such that it isn't overly roasted and dry. Chocolate with some creaminess.

Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

I love the coffee flavors in this beer. So good, so fresh!

i thought this was excellent. a bit thin as porters go, which for me hurt the overall richness of the beer, i like a little more meat on these, especially with the coffee. more to cling t and hang on to, but thats really my only criticism. the malt base is nice, a solid roast on it, soil and wet earth thing going on, with nutty notes, almond maybe, and that marries really well with the coffee, which is not over done at all, but rather blended in expertly. it doesnt overtake the beer. that nutty thing is a little sweet in the flavor, but its like a flavored creamer or something in a cup of joe, so it works. there isnt quite enough bitterness on the back end for it to all the way resolve, but it gets near it, and the coffee lingers pleasantly for awhile. i wish there was a little more coffee to it as well, its not super subtle, but it also doesnt give much of a caffeine hit, and most of the flavor of it comes on really late. overall though a really tasty porter that i think has four season versatility due to its lighter body.
