Poured on tap at Brewer's Art into their own chalice.

Deep mahogany brown, nearly black with a nice perfect matching light cocoa brown head. Some good staying power if only a finger of head produced, very creamy looking and some nice red hues towards the bottom of the glass.

Nose has a nice light mellow coffee sense. Very aromatic roast qualities that come out really soft, almost piping hot chocolate.

Taste just hits the spot. Real nice mild coffee that lingers on first sip, with this very light bodied porter quality. Piping roast head follows on the swallow, with some leafy tobacco to match. Hints of crispness and dry beans and a sharp yeasty punch round out the aftertaste.

This is one of the better coffee flavored porters I've had in a long time, this really hit the spot for me.

Ruby body with a weak and quickly disappearing head. Smell of Belgian yeast, but stifled by an aroma like old peanut shells. Taste is more of the same. No coffee, just a rather vile peanut flavor.

12 ounce cans are sold six to a pack. The can says the ABV is 6.0%

Pours dark and nondescript with no head of which to speak.

Smells sharp and charred, perhaps a little ashy. The coffee nodes are very, very strong, and oddly enough it's as if they chose a rather bright and acidic roast of coffee bean. That might work well for straight coffee, but against hops and porter barley the effect is bracing and unpleasant. I get used to it after a few sniffs, but I never really enjoy it.

Tastes unfortunately like it smells, but the sharpness has thankfully increased somewhat. There's sharp, very bright coffee up front--nearly like vinegar in its intensity--and then the back end and finish are that of a middle of the road, chocolatey porter. The effect is mostly disconcerting, even as I got more or less used to it at the can progressed.

Very nice strong coffee flavor. Not the big stout feel , but a very nice porter. I would seek this one out.

The look is deep, dark brown, as one would expect for a coffee porter. Very little head, which quickly disappeared, leaving no lacing at all. The smell is coffee and roasty/malty, not bad. The taste is very average. I love coffee flavored beers, and this is one of the mildest (weakest) I've ever tasted. The feel is ok, but rather thin, with minimal carbonation. Overall, this is a disappointment. Being a native of MD, I was hoping for better from a MD brewery. I think the best aspect of this beer was the label with the crowing rooster.
