from a can, into glass

very dark brown in color, almost black. tan colored head. nice aroma of what I expect - sweetened coffee. similar taste - but not too sweet. could be thicker bodied, but makes for easy drinking.

Pours a somewhat thin looking dark brown, which appears black in the glass except a noitceable reddish brown hue around the edges and a thin ring of light tan foam around the rim of the glass.

Pungent aroma of fresh brewed coffee and heavily roasted malt. There is a faint caramel like sweetness that lingers, as well as a sweet aroma of fresh cream.

This is brings a punch of fresh coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, and heavy sweet cream flavors. Tastes very much like an iced coffee with a splash of milk, a pinch of sugar, and a bit of carbonation.

Full-bodied, low-medium carbonation, roasty, creamy, and sweet.

Overall, I can't say enough good things about this beer. I love the simplicity of this beer with just enough creaminess and sugary sweetness notes to balance a delicious coffee base. Drink it for breakfast!

Poured on tap at the brewpub, the beer is a dark brown-mahogany coloring, with a foamy, filmy, clingy, light tan head. Aromas of roasted coffee, subtle bittersweet chocolate, and hints of char. Flavors are heavily roasted coffee, bitter and rich, with a creamy sweet overlay. Dry, light bodied, with a roasted and chocolate sweet aftertaste. Dry, smooth finish, with a subtle bittersweet linger. Solid beer.

Overall a light bodied coffee porter that is light on the dark roasted coffee flavor with a smoother milk chocolate flavor. Easy drinking with a nice blend of sweetness and lightly roasted malt. Had this as a chaser while drinking the BA coffee stouts so it was quite the difference.

Pours a very dark brown with a dark tan, two finger head. Leaves lots of lacing. Very good coffee smell. Nice lighter coffee taste with malt and vanilla undertones. Maybe a slight hop taste. A thinner mouthfeel, but lots of taste. Decent porter.
