Pours dark brown with a nice mocha head and tiny bubble lacing that quickly fades to a ring around the glass, slight red hue shines through when held to the light. Smell is roasted and chocolate malt with fresh ground coffee, although not overly pungent for a coffee beer.

Taste is loads of roasted malt and fresh ground coffee, there really is a ton of coffee flavor, with some chocolate also detectable. Feel is smooth, some espresso-esque bitterness does linger though. Overall this is a pretty great beer. The best way I can sum it up is that this is basically Founders Breakfast Stout Jr.

Wow, community surprises me once again. I hate Dallas, but love this brewery and this beer. (FW is the better side of Dallas:)

L: Dark with thin brown head that doesn't linger too much - standard for a porter
S: Strong coffee/chocolate smell. Somehow a little off-putting, despite the fact that I love the smell of coffee. Maybe a bit burnt-smelling?
T: Fantastic. Nice balance of bitterness and complexity, with coffee definitely at the forefront. This is a coffee lover's beer.
F: Good. Maybe a bit more carbonated than the average porter. Very smooth, with a crisp finish.

Overall, a very good beer. Had it from a bottle - would very much want to try it on draft.

This is good COFFEE porter, which I like. If you're not coffee person probably too much. Great mouthfeel, incredible lacing and texture.

Beautiful near black with brown head and good lacing. Roasty coffee and malt nose. Tastes of burnt malt, chocolate, coffee with little hop bitterness. Medium body and light carbonation. Love the way this beer comes together.
