Dark brown body with a quarter inch of filmy beige head. The expected roast and coffee character in both the nose and flavor. Simple and straightforward. A bit light in body. Could be bolder and more assertive.

Bottle from Bearded Monk, dated 11/12/15. Pours a very dark brown with a foamy brown head. The aroma is sweet malt with a hint of coffee. The coffee really shows up in the flavor but you can also taste the base Baltic Porter. Nice.

one of my favorite styles and favorite brewers - growler from caps and taps. Aroma has a strong coffee/earth/slight barnyard - love it! dark pour with zero head; good palate - easy drinker; lacking some on flavor - I get some coffee but not much else.....better as it warms

Really rich coffee aroma. Big tan head on a black body. The balance of bitter and sweet leans to bitter a bit much. Nice malt complexity. Good drinker.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
TCBF. Pours a dark opaque brown with a shallow ring head. Nose is smoke, coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. More vanilla and chocolate on the tongue, along with some dark fruit and cola notes; the vanilla is restrained, which is nice. (I sometimes mistrust vanilla in beers, since it can be used to hide a myriad of sins.) Really smooth and elegant on the finish. This is a lovely, not overwhelming coffee porter.
