Pour is dark as night. Light tan head.

Nose of dirt - a bit funky, spent coffee grounds, roast malts.

Entry is rather dry, builds out to a dry stout profile. Mid mouth, a funk takes over. Dirt, funk, wormy taste. Not enjoyable flavor. Finshes with coffee dryness.

Several aspects I like, but my goodness...this is the worst flavor profile I have had witha Two Brothers beer - this was hard for me to finish- last half of bottle was a drain pour. Laxks a "good" coffee flavor.

Bomber poured into a Deschutes tulip pint... possibly poured too cold, i think my beer fridge is holding at 40 degrees for some reason.

Pours a nice mahogany brown with almost no head, although a bit of a swirl brings on an oil-slick of coffee ice cream-colored bubbles. The aroma is sort of like that - coffee ice cream, roasted malts, a bit of burnt brown sugar and a hint of something spicy in the back.

Sips like a coffee milkshake - incredibly smooth, almost nitro-casked in mouthfeel. The coffee comes forward late, the front end is smooth and full of roasted malt and cream. As it warms the coffee comes through stronger, leaving a lasting bitterness.

This is a nice porter - the color and mouthfeel would have me thinking stout, but the malt character is all porter here - still, this is the smoothest coffee porter i think i've ever had the pleasure of drinking. Very nice, especially for the price - something I'd reach for again.
