12 ounce bottle into a snifter. Bottled 3/29/17, had 2/22/18. Uh- oh, the gift of an over aged beer.

Pours dark, somewhat opaque, with a one and a half inch fizzy head with good retention and some foamy lacing. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, smoke, malt, some vanilla. The taste is malt, coffee, chocolate, fizz, fizz, fizz. Excessively fizzy, mostly smooth, a good but a touch thin body.

Have to assume the age killed this, but didn’t know a porter would increase in carbonation, either. Still, good aroma.

Look- Very dark with about half a finger worth of head. Head dissipated quickly.

Smell- Sour with hints of coffee and chocolate. Smell was faint, Though.

Taste- Loved the taste. Taste had strong hints of coffee, chocolate and dark fruit (plums maybe).

Feel- Smooth. Not boozy at all.

Overall, I loved this beer and will definitely add this to my list of go to beers.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

pour: be gentle! extremly foamy

L: -very- foamy, nice lacing. pour with caution!

S: herbal pastures mixed with your traditional roasted malt

T: roasted coffee up front, chewy bubblegum and tobacco in the middle, bitter mouthwash on the backend. not a fan of the aftertaste at all.

F: quite carbonated and acerbic. slightly boozy as it slides down

okay beer. really not a fan of the bitterness. taste upfront is alright, but booziness is not masked very well. probably would not buy another 6-pack

It pours like coffee with a weak tan colored head. It definitely smells like coffee, pretty good coffee at that. I drank it pretty cold so I think it would have been better at 50. It’s still very good, not too bitter or sweet. I’m not a big dark beer fan but this was nice and something I’ll drink again. Seemed heavy to me so one was plenty.

Got Katz Coffee seasonal release Nov. 2017. Solid porter with nice, malty, coffee accent. The coffee doesn't overpower like so many coffee beers do. A bargain at $1.79/btl

Dark, opaque body off tap pour, short tan head. Smell is full of dark malt notes, coffee and chocolate. Lush flavor, full of those favorite coffee and chocolate notes. Pretty solid feel, but not burdensome. A lovely choice for this style and type.

A decent porter. Coffee notes aren't over bearing and the creamy caronation keeps it light. Maybe a bit sweet, but overall balance is about right.
