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 itís too light and effervescent. Otherwise, very well-balanced and tasty.

roxtersoxter (323) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Pours dark black with small light brown head out of bottle. Chocolate/coffee aroma. Great coffee taste with a hint of chocolate. Great beer! Big Sky keeping up the high quality brewing! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrnkMcDermott (2810) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Draft at Monkí 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 itís the hops talking. There is some roast on the palate, but itís rather "patient," waiting to sneak up on you. Not a lot of alcohol, but it is still presented for your appreciation.

Nsanders (520) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Dark brown with small bubbles, looks thicker. Aromas of malts, milk, muddiness, and only minimal coffee. Moderately sweet with a slight bitter finish. Medium body with a foamy feel.

A - Great looking beer. Very dark black with darker tan head. Lacing is okay. S - Strong coffee aroma with chocolate hints. T - Nice example of a coffee porter. Not too strong on the coffee taste. Nothing really stands out though. A little bit of nuttiness. M - Mouthfeel leaves a little to be desired. Body is lighter than I would have like. Carbonation is also a little lighted than I would have liked. Dryer finish is nice. This is where the beer could improve. O - A good drinkable coffee porter. Not too intense and good balance. Maybe makes a good coffee session beer, if there is a such thing. Good enough to have once, probably wonít be revisiting for a while.

Strong coffee taste. Not too different from a coffee stout. Overall another strong entry from Big Sky.

BVery (6622) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle. Pretty much a black pour with a small spotty khaki head. Coffee and slight lactose in this. Smooth and fairly heavy palate. Delicious.
