3.83/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a dark brown with some bronze highlights and some tan head.

Smell is slightly smoky with lots of coffee and some hints of tobacco and dark chocolate.

Taste is coffee-forward with notes of tobacco, chocolate and cocoa with a hint of smokiness. Milder than I had expected.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a good coffee stout, but I was expecting something wilder than this.

L - frothy, hazelnut head atop a black body.

S - lots of coffee, chocolate.

T - coffee-forward, with milk chocolate, a little smoke, a little nuttiness. Low bitterness. Low sweetness. Low booziness.

F - medium body and carb.

O - delivers on what it advertises. I was hoping for something a little more extreme in the coffee and smoke department, but as-is its a crowd pleaser.

Thanks, Chad!

Was grateful for pulling in this, along with 16 others, from Chad and Bill on a recent work trip to Reno, Nev. Had only had Cellarmaker’s IPAs and hazy IPAs, so was looking forward to trying something heavier. Had heard great things about this one. Description called it, “A lightly smoked coffee porter made with a touch of German beechwood smoked malt as well as high quality 2 lbs. of Sightglass coffee per barrel.”

Poured a pitch black color with khaki tan fizzy head. No noticeable bubbles. Poor watery lacing. Very bad retention. (Sight - 2.75)

Smelled black coffee, dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, light ashtray, smoky wood and dark cacao nibs. Even more smokier from the can and actually not as good from the can for nose. (Smell - 4.25)

Dang. Even better for the taste. Got cold-brewed black coffee, dark roasted malt, smoky char wood, ashtray, dark chocolate and dark cacao nibs. (Taste - 4.50)

Full body. Sticky-to-slick texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 4.50)

Just an awesome porter. World-class. (Overall - 4.50)

Pours like a porter should, a touch watery with 2 inches of khaki head that quickly dissipates and leaves no trace of its existence in the smooth black inky surface of the beer. Smell just has the slightest hint of coffee but is predominated by roast barley notes. You don't really get the smoked nature of this beer until you actually try it. Porterish up front with a coffee middle followed by a porter finish that is smokies than it should be and hence the smoked porter. Decent amount of carbonation yet silkyish going down. Overall this beer is solid but I think I waited too long in letting it sit as the flavors were a touch muted.

On tap at Toronado SD, into a little goblet.

Tasty little porter, nice balance of coffee and chocolate notes. Coffee is obvious but doesn't crowd out other flavor aspects. Nose is more singularly espresso aromas. This isn't my favorite style but I'm finding it pretty easy to drink.

Nose of coffee, ash, some chocolate. Creamy but thin mouthfeel. Campfire ash hits fairly early, with nuances of chocolate fudge and roasted coffee coming in. Wishing it were a bit richer and more viscous, but very good for a 7.7% porter.
