Had a bottle poured into a shaker pint glass at The Libertine in downtown Calgary. A brownish black near-opaque brew with rather minimal tan head and a very roasted aroma, largely fresh ground coffee and roasted barley with a slight hoppy tang. Very smooth on the mouth, with a refined roastiness and little astringency. Not what I was expected based on the aroma. The coffee is discernible but not all encompassing and this still tastes like a legit porter: Caffe latte with some nutty malts, red berry and watermelon fruity notes, a whisper of lemon rind. I think Cascade hops are detectable in the fairly dry finish. Semi-chewy chalky body with moderate carbonation. From the perspective of a guy who likes his beer to taste like beer, this is quite good and much preferred to this brewery's vanilla porter (see that review), in which the special ingredient carries too much of the weight.

Poured from a 341mL bottle into a conical pint glass.

Very dark, as expected from a porter. About a 1-finger head.

Smell is predominantly coffee, as advertised, with some sweet aroma. Taste follows nose with strong coffee flavour, transitioning to a nice bitterness from the beer. Neither smell nor taste are particularly complex, though. Fairly significant carbonation felt.

Overall, a nice but simple beer that I'd be happy to drink again in the future.
