L: Very nice looking dark (nearly black) beer. Large head that is white-brown and appears to be hanging in there long after the initial poor.

S: Imagine that, it smells like coffee! Coffee with a noticeable malt backbone in the scent.

T: This is fantastic. It tastes as it's described on the bottle, its Berkshires Drayman's Porter with lots and lots of coffee. It also appears to have a smidge more sweetness. I really love this brew, it tastes great. Nose is robust, almost like a dark-roast, coffee with malt; that same tastes rides through the majority of the drink, which ends on a hop-centric bitter note. Well balance, smooth, and delicious.

F: Very creamy, almost milky.

O: This is the best beer that I have had from Berkshire. (And all there beers have been 4+ out of 5 in my opinion) They really did a good job of incorporating the coffee flavor into the porter flavor without taking over. The coffee does not take brew, you get a next mix of both worlds. This is one of my favorite porters and one that I will deffinitely be purchasing again.

This is the best porter I've ever had. I usually do not like coffee-infused things, but this taste is very subtle and adds a flavor to this Porter that really goes a long way. Nice and heavy with a rich taste. I really don't know how tide active this besides awesome.

Pitch black engine oil-esque color with moderate head and insistent but not oppressive lacing.

Very surprised to see all these other reviews after having had a chance to review this. The beer lacks any distinguishing character and is a tad high on the carbonation. Decent mouth feel with extremely subtle notes of hops and sweetness. Very bland and overly carbonated IMO. Could barely taste the coffee. Just tastes like a stronger bud light. Completely overrated in my opinion

Great flavor. Excellent nitro beer. Very creamy and tasty with a great aftertaste of coffee.

Sampled in March 2016 from 22oz bottle in pint glass. Bottled on date of 10/2/2015 was on the bottle.

Appearance: Pitch black, dark color, with a thick dark tan head. The head lasted a long time, and left a nice lacing on the glass, but not a lot.

Smell: There are roasted malt aromas, along with some strong coffee and sweet caramel aromas. Some bitterness in the aroma. Nice combination and balance between the various flavors.

Taste: Full-bodied with great balance of malt and hops. There is a hint of sweetness and caramel flavors that may be due to the malts, but it is balanced nicely with pronounced coffee flavor, and a little bitterness from hops. Overall it has an excellent taste. The combination of strong hops and roasted malts and strong alcohol give this drink powerful flavors.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, but very smooth. Very creamy. Medium alcohol which matches with the 6.2% on the label.

Overall: Overall, this is a very good beer and one of the best porters I have tasted. This is the first beer I have tried from Berkshire Brewing Co. The more I drink it, the more I like it. I will definitely look for this and buy it again.
