3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Approximately a third of a 32-oz. crowler, consumed on 10-29-15. Canned on 10-25-15. Pours a dark brown with bubbly, taupe head. Strong coffee scent. Highly coffee flavor atop a quite good underlying porter beer. Roasted coffee been. Mild but unmistakable in its coffeeness. Really nice. I normally am not a coffee guy; in fact, I generally loathe it, but somehow this works for me. I suspect the key is the lactose that counters the normal astringent, feces-like coffee affect. Light to medium body. Surprisingly good for my tastes; in fact, this has got to be the best coffee beer I’ve ever had (although I do generally avoid them).
