From the 650 ml. bottle with a smudged "Best By" date unfortunately. Sampled on January 30, 2016.

Dark brown pour with a decent sized long lasting tan, foamy head.

Excellent ground or roasted coffee aroma on the nose while any hop character is low profile. Modest sweetness in there too.

The body is almost medium but it is definitely smooth and creamy.

The taste brings out a full coffee character with a decent malt sweetness and little to no hop bitterness at the end. It is a decently done Porter.

Bomber poured into a stemmed glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights around the edges. Lots of sticky, spotty tan lacing behind. Big off-tan head.

Aroma: Coffee, coffee beans, roastiness, cocoa.

Taste: Nice, coffee-forward flavors of espresso, black coffee, espresso beans and dark, roasted coffee beans. Unambiguously a coffee porter. Cocoa and dark toast are there, too. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and pretty full bodied. Good depth. Representative of style.

Overall: Pretty much everything I look for in a coffee porter. Don't know why it took me so long to try this one out. It's really good, and a great price at $3.50 or so for a bomber.
