Bottle dated filled 10/17/16 into a tulip glass.

L: Pours dark black with finger of medium density tan head that dissipates quickly to a thin ring and left spotted lacing.

S: Great balance of coffee, chocolate and roast. Really liked the nose.

T: Follows the nose well, but not as dynamic. Finishes with some bitterness and roast that linger to the palate for just a bit.

F: Lighter bodied for a porter, lower carbonation, and feels silky on the tongue.

O: A very nice coffee porter that if local would be on my recurring purchase list.

12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Pours a massive tan head, nearly pitch black liquid. Smells of fresh brewed coffee, roasted malts, a hint of dark sugar, and toast. Smooth with a bit of creaminess on the palate, roasted malt and roasted coffee flavors are on point. A bit of charcoal, blackstrap molasses, and dark chocolate in there. Semi-sweet but there is enough roasted character to balance. A very easy drinking and flavorful Coffee infused Porter.

Presentation: 12 oz bottle stamped" Filled 10/17/16" pored into a pint glass.

Look: Deep solid black with a 1.5 finger tan head. Very good head retention.

Smell: Malts and alcohol followed by the strong smell of black coffee.

Taste: Coffee is the prevailing flavor here but well balanced overall.

Feel: medium mouthfeel with rather high high carbonation.

Overall: A very good coffee porter.
