Almost undetectable coffee aroma, flavor matches. Terribly thin. Furthermore there is a slight off flavor i cannot put my finger on. Overall a boring beer

Pours the color of cola. To me, tastes like most porters, which is good, but obviously this one has subtle (to me) hints of coffee and chocolate. These flavors are not overpowering but are present, especially towards the end and when you breathe out after finishing the last bit. Pretty good.

341 ml bottle picked up out of the singles bin at the LCBO. About $2.25 CDN for the bottle. Served at cellar temperature into a pint glass.

Appearance - dark cola brown coloured beer is poured with a half finger of sticky but quickly receding white head. Opaque and thick looking, with minimal if any lacing left around the edge of the glass.

Smell - plenty of coffee but also a sweet caramel notion and some vanilla. More like a latte then full blown espresso.

Taste - similar to the nose, at first with traces of caramel and vanilla cutting through the coffee base. Finishes with some acidity and with coffee grounds in mind, closer to the espresso bean rather than the latte.

Mouthfeel - smooth and creamy with a tingly sensation left on the tongue. A bit chewy but not too thick. Good feel for a beer of this style.

Overall - I can't say that Mill Street Coffee Porter exceeded my expectations, but it didn't fall short either, delivering a unique coffee flavor that leans a little closer to the dark roast and pungent coffees of Europe rather than a muddled latte. Worth a shot.

This is a very solid coffee porter. The coffee flavour is not overpowering and melds together nicely with the chocolate notes. Overall, this is a porter that tastes like beer first. The final product has a rich mouthfeel and a very pleasant after taste. This brew has definite potential as a breakfast beer.
