Opaque and basically black in the glass. Dark orange-brown, viscous, semi-clear on the pour. Head is thick, foamy, even, a pleasant, light shade of brown. Big, heavy cap, but moderate or weak retention for the style. Lacing is alright. Aromas of medium roast coffee, meat, salt, a little chocolate, a little booze. Robust coffee flavors from start to finish. Toasty. A little sweet half way in, then tart, then light smoke bitterness with swallow and aftertaste. Full-bodied, light to medium carbonation, doesn't bubble up very much. Dry, astringent finish.

nice to get to try this one from the nitro tap. those expecting a huge coffee bomb here need to look elsewhere for that, this is pretty subtle on the java frankly, but is a nice porter overall. sometimes i cant drink a ton of coffee beer, for the coffee is too much, caffeine and belly and all that, but not here, this is sort of a coffee session type, intentional or not. good to see newer beers coming around from these guys too. its medium luster thick dark brown with maybe two inches of the creamy nitro head, looks great. smell is pretty minimal on the coffee, just an accent there, but its more alive in the taste, mingling with notes of raisin and dark chocolate, quite tasty and not overly complex. they did a good job reducing the acidity of the coffee, and not over doing the bitterness. the roast is short of burnt and ashy on the malt, so it works with the coffee, no double jeopardy there. excellent feel too, thick and creamy, not overly dry, smooth to finish. its big enough for cold weather, but drinkable enough for summer too. good versatility on this one.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Go ahead, bird: try to rob my camp. Get some. Anyway, this stuff pours a dark midnight sienna topped by a finger of dirty khaki foam. The nose comprises sweet coffee, chocolate syrup, and mild roasted malts. The taste leads with some strong green coffee beans, then into some bitter roasted malts and toasted pumpernickel and sourdough. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, this coffee porter didn't do it for me. The coffee and roast were both far too bitter for my liking, and the breadiness, especially near the finish, seemed out of place.

Bottle poured into a Big Sky Brewing pint glass

A: Pours dark brown, very little light passes through, with a frothy khaki brown head that settles with spotty lacing.

S: Coffee, a little dark chocolate, a touch of smoke, and some malt sweetness.

T: Nice coffee, roasted malt, a little smokey, burnt toast, and earthy hop notes. A bit watery.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: I wish it was a little thicker and some of the chocolate on the nose followed through into the taste, but not bad.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a big creamy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is subdued - some sweet lactic chocolate malt with some acidic roast and a little perfumey fruity licorice.

The flavor is sweet grainy malts with a little floral roast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, not all that good, I don't get much coffee.

L- Black like coffee, head left immediately.

S- Strong espresso smell, kind of sweet.

T- Coffee flavor, slight roasted malt, and then a light bitterness. Kinda watery.

F- Decent feel on this one. Good carbonation, and the body seems right for the style.

O- Not crazy about this, but glad I scored a free bottle.
