I had to make this my first review because I had it on tap at Uptown Grill this weekend, loved it, came to BA to find out where to get it and saw these two bad reviews. I think they might have had a bad keg at Hopcat. It came with a very creamy look and a mild aroma of coffee. Taste is smooth and delicious. Could drink a few of these with no problem.

On tap at hopcat.

A: pours a dark brown almost black with a rather small tan head. No real retention or lace noted.

S: Aromas of light roasted malt, cheap truck stop coffee, and chocolate malt.

T: Taste even less appealing than the aroma. Light roasted malt with very subtle chocolate. Hints of coffee, but not the fresh kind. To describe it I would say watered down cheap coffee with a hint of crushed malt. Nothing really melds, hell there is very little flavor here to be honest.

M: Light, watery.

D: Forgettable. I have already forgot I consumed this one.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

On tap at Hopcat:

A: Dark brown with little to no head and good lacing.

S: Weak coffee and dark malt, very typical of a coffee porter. Not as much as I would like.

T: Similar to smell with creamy coffee. Gets worse as it warms unfortunately; a little watery but not bad overall.

M/D: A little too bubbly but pretty drinkable.

Not a great beer.
