Had in the prefilled growler from coastal. Poured only brown with a nice porter flavor overall. Easy to drink but not worth getting over the coffeehouse porter.

Midnight black with minimum white head.
Smelled of roasted malt, a bit bready, hint of caramel.
Tasted similar to the nose especially in regards to the roasted malt. A bit bitter.
Medium bodied porter, a bit acidic/bitter, not too watery.
Overall, it's not a bad porter. Solid base for the Coffeehouse Porter.

Feel like BBC took their really good maiboc and blended in a coffee porter. Nice balance, sense a touch of sweetness on initial chew that I can't put my finger on.

Look. Dark coffee brown, medium sized, medium brown froth.
Smell. Yeasty, fresh, toasted ness, no coffee or chocolate for me, maybe a hint of caramel.
Taste. Slight nod to the hoppy side, bit of malty sweetness.
Mouth feel. Medium heavy body, puckery dry oni the back of the palate, slightly chewy, a bit more oily than watery.
Overall. Not too complex, maybe the IBU's, though moderate, overwhelm the malts. I like 'em more robust and malty.

Light, rich, sweet yet slightly dry. Being only 20 minutes from their brewery I can attest to the fresh quality of all of BBC's beers. This is a very traditional porter, complex enough with notes of chocolate malt while being extremely drinkable as well. Great every day drinker for those colder days.
