By far the worst craft beer I've had. Would not wish this on my enemy. I've Never ever done this w any beer, but I actually dumped more than half of the bomber down the drain. I really tried to find something to like about it. Not sure how it won a medal. Maybe it was the only beer competing that year.

Inoffensive is the best word to describe this stout. It sure tastes like Kona coffee, but it lacks a lot of kick and taste. It's pretty light for a stout, and I found myself gulping this down pretty quickly. There's nothing strong coming from this beer other than the coffee flavor.

On tap at the brewpub.

A: a very durable creamy tan head leaves some sticky lacing. Clear but nearly opaque dark brown.

Aroma: mix of medium- and dark-malts with light-roasted coffee.

Flavor: Mix of medium- and dark-malts with light-roasted coffee. Excellent balance between the coffee an the malts. Faint hop presence.

Feel: near medium body with medium soft carbonation.

O: well-crafted coffee porter.

Bottle from this new to me brewery.

A very dark brown with a dense, brown head with solid retention and lacing, this looks good. The nose is plenty of creamy coffee, toast, caramel and toffee. Not as roasty as I like my porters. The palate opens with sweet creamy coffee with chocolate, a very mild fruity acidity and a mild roasty flavor. The mid palate is unfortunately a little watery. Drying on the finish with a mild roast flavor and fruity coffee, this beer is solid. Not as robust as I like my porters to be but solid nonetheless.

Pours an almost opaque super dark orange-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and coffee bean aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and brewed coffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid coffee presence that makes this one much better than the base beer (Moonstone Porter).

A - Dark brown, almost black with a 3 finger of head. Gone pretty fast

S - Coffee as expected, chocolate and some eathiness

T - Coffee follows the aroma, it's a roasty coffee taste, dark bitter chocolate and some oats

M - The body is medium to light and kind of creamy the first two or three sips, then it becomes more watery. The after taste is more coffe, chocolate and oats

O - Nice coffee porter but it lacks of body and more flavors.

Appearance- pours a deep brown with a moderate light brown half finger head ( after a vigorous pour). looks kinda like a cola in the glass.the cap gets real thin but there is some lacing as i go along

Aroma- coffee of course but earth and date/fig also maybe a touch of prune?!

Taste- the taste has that coffee bit or sourness (not a bad sourness) but its not bitter. i don't get the depth and the earthyness that the nose provided. The nose made me think it would be deep like an espresso, but the taste is more of a blonde roast drip.... if you get me !

Mouthfeel- I think this is what makes it an award winner, despite the lack of head retention its not too effervecent its also not too oily as i think some coffee stouts/porters can be. It could seriously take the place of a morning cup of joe! No alcohol warmth, no oilyness no sting!

Overall- this with a stack of pancakes and a side of bacon, yes please. I still think cismontane's black's Dawn is more my speed in the coffee/beer department but i would order another of these for sure.
