3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with tan head. Aroma is coffee dominate with hints of chocolate. Flavor I’d much the same with a nice dark roast/coffee bitter and dry. Light-medium mouth feel with high carbonation. Overall, solid brew"

Well done coffee porter. Aromas are up front coffee, sweet malt and some chocolate. Dark cafe color with smallish off-white head. Creamy palate with some weight but not too heavy. The flavors blended well with coffee being the dominant followed by maltiness with a little bit of roasted. A little bit of chocolate milk as well. Not sure if this had lactose or not. Good spin on a porter.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a solid black with a half inch dark tan head that lasts. Taste is of coffee, malt, chocolate, some smoke and some hops. Similar, cleaner aroma. Has a decent body with a dry finish. Good, but underwhelming.

Almost black in color with a tan head. Really nice coffee aroma. Strong coffee, mild spice, and a dark berry aroma. Some cocoa powder, dark chocolate, and hints of caramel sweetness to go along with all the roast. The flavor is a bit less impressive, but still enjoyable. Coffee, roasted malt, and a fair amount of dark chocolate. Mild spice, some earth, and a light bitterness.

Just the right balance of sweet and bitter. Roasty, but not too acrid. You can taste the coffee, especially at first, but that declines. My only quibble with this beer is that it’s too light and effervescent. Otherwise, very well-balanced and tasty.

Draft at Monk’ Pub. Kind of an oblique toast to a Pope from Argentina. Black pour with a 1-finger tan head. Distinct brewed coffee aroma, not too bitter. But the coffee in the actual taste is a bit more bitter, or perhaps it’s the hops talking. There is some roast on the palate, but it’s rather "patient," waiting to sneak up on you. Not a lot of alcohol, but it is still presented for your appreciation.
