3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown colored body with a bubbly and light brown/grey head. Aroma is a combination of cocoa, coffee, smoke and a hint of chicory. Chocolate is predominant in taste but foral hops and smoke accents drive through your mouth. The oily texture is a joy for your tongue. Great beer.

Upon attempting to pour this beer, there was no way to do so without it foaming up like a bomb had gone off. Thinking i had shaken them perhaps on the ride home from the store I tried a 2nd one the next day, same problem. The beer has a metallic smell and taste, I think I got a coffee flavored bottle of cheap malt liquor here. Major ripoff for such a foul taste and bad experience. How did this brewery let this pass? Something way wrong here.

A nice mellow porter that has substance but lacks the overall enthusiasm that makes this beef exceptional. Toasty nutty malt with a clean head and easy tasting . A session beer with restrictions.

In Coal Porter, there is nothing wildly thrilling happening, just a damned solid Porter. Matching perfectly are the nose and flavour, although simple. Bold notes of strong, black coffee pierce through the more subdued chocolate intimations. The body feels somewhat thin but still with a nice slickness, slightly coating the tongue with the malt’s roasty bitterness. Leaving no lacing behind or even a head to speak of, this is an enjoyable if forgettable example.

Brown, clear color, head explodes in the glass, Hiroshima-style, filling it completely, top to bottom with a tan, lasting foam.
Intense, yeasty nose.
Medium body, moderate flavor, assertive mouthfeel, low heat but not flat, good balance, lingering palate.
Bitter, mildly sweet background, high but not excessive acidity.
Roast flavors, yeasty,
Quite pleasant, never exiting but it grows on you.
