3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery. Clear light black pour, tan head. Lots of coffee in this one, tastes more like a good iced coffee than beer, with some roasted malt, sweetness, and dry cocoa. Simple, but a nice coffee beer.

Aroma is based on the very apparent coffee in this beer. The appearance is like nothing else I have ever seen in a coffee porter or any coffee incorporated beer, which I found very intriguing. It was very cloudy and looked like coffee. The taste is very much like the aroma. Try it!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. One dimensional (per se) but a great beer. Pours with a near black hued body with a lasting tan head. Aromas are quite rich, dark cocoa, rich coffee, creamer and vanilla. Flavors are completely coffee with creamer (one of those beers, but well done none the less). Vanilla, chocolate, great coffee flavor. Roasty and lightly bitter, medium bodied with medium to light carbonation. Great beer.
