Great porter, thanks Richard aka Mark. Dark, very smooth, with just enough moderate coffee flavour. Good mouthfeel. Mild coffee aroma. I am more liking finbacks.

A: on tap @ Huckleberry. Midnight pitch black. Served to top on tulip with no head.

S: Medium roasted coffee. A little bit of earth and tobacco. Cinnamon spice and a synergetic caramelized fruitiness.

M: Custard like body with sweet juicy feel. Hence, low-moderate acridity. Superfine carb.

T: Getting cherry notes along with blackberry. Orange sherbet, and freshly peeled orange rind. Backed by a light omniscient, vanilla roast and caramel. A sweet, fruity variation of what is typically a roasted, sharp coffee beer.

The appearance is pitch black with a small tan head. Minimal retention, it quickly dies away, but leaves a thin ring, and lacing.
The smell is medium to dark roast black coffee, fresh coffee grounds, slightly nutty, with dark chocolate. Hints of green and black pepper, pine and earth.
It tastes like medium-dark roast black coffee throughout the palate. Dark and bitter chocolate from start to finish as well. Smooth, oily, chocolate syrup sensations without the sweetness. Slight nuttiness, char, and smoke. Some green and black pepper notes from the coffee. Finishes lightly bitter with lingering coffee and malt roast, but fairly clean.
The mouthfeel is medium, well-carbonated, smooth and oily but not thick. Finishes lightly dry, but fairly clean.
Overall, a great coffee porter if you love black coffee.

Having on tap at Beer Shop, NYC. Happy to add it to the database.
Pours a black color with hints of ruby. A mocha colored foamy head retains nicely. Although it dissipates halfway, it yields a thin Saturn ring of lace.
The blackboard at the bar lists this as a coffee porter; sure enough, this aroma is present. Other aromas include nutty malt, dark chocolate and a hint of grassy hops.
Medium bodied, ultra smooth and with a moderate to gentle carbonation. Lightly roasted malts, flavors of coffee, raw cacao, and dark malts. Nice balance of sweetness and bitterness from the roasted malts. Great silky and smooth finish that has a touch of creamy sweetness, subtle citrus zest from the hops, and a espresso bean linger.
A real fine coffee porter. Drinkable and velvety. A nice find!
