Served in a pint glass, the pour was dark black and opaque, with a good head.

Full body but carboration is a tad too high.

Lots of black coffee in the nose, with even more in the flavor. Strong, rich flavor. Good bitter/sweet balance. Lasting aftertaste of coffee and dark roasted, smokey malts.

O: a nice rich porter with way more smoke and coffee than average.

A: Had this beer on-tap at Gene's haufbrau, poured into a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a thick texture. There was a half inch of exceptionally creamy, tan-colored, very long-lasting head. Incredible lacing.

S: A subtly enticing aroma of chocolate, coffee and malt.

T: Basically tastes like it smells: A big shot of chocolate right up front with a good amount of coffee and some roasted malt in the finish. A dry, well done flavor that's much more robust than your typical porter.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An engaging, likeable, well made beer.

Nice chocolate nose and taste, the rye is an interesting twist on a porter

A. Poured into a pint glass, color is that of black coffee with a nice sized cream colored head that dissipates into a nice lace.

S. Nice roasted malt & coffee smell

T. Just along the lines of the smell, Strong coffee with a light roasted malt and little to no chocolate (not really sure why it's in the name should have been coffee) followed by a nice amount of hops.

M. Medium body, could have a little more carbonation to me but still nice.

Overall a really nice beer might get another growler, would definitely recommend.
