Bottle. Pours black, thin brown head. Roasty coffee aroma, a little bit of dark chocolate and fruit. Taste is mild sweet. Medium full body, average carbonation, nice balance finish with the coffee and mild bitter hops. Overall flavor is pretty good, not as good as their Oatmeal Porter.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ar: Burnt coffee, ash, and a touch of pepper phenolics.
Ap: Black center with clear brown highlights on the edges - small tan head with moderate retention and a light ring of lacing.
T: Sweet dark caramel and light roast coffee up front - light bitterness and cola mid-palate - finishes very abruptly.
P: Medium body with medium carbonation - finish is somewhat watery.
O: This beer began with promise, nice nose and flavor up front, but seemed to fall apart soon after - watery quality just takes a lot away from it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours very dark mahogany with only a little bit of head. Taste is mostly malty java flavor with a bit of sour bitterness. There is a bit of chalkiness to this beer that is slightly off-putting but this is still a pretty good beer. I am not the biggest porter fan but this one is definitely not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very dark with a finger of tan head. Aroma of molasses and coffee. Tastes of coffee mellowed by a touch of chocolate. Relatively mild for a coffee stout, but still definitely a coffee stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black from the bottle, with a foamy, mocha-brown head. The aroma is distinctly reminiscent of coffee and milk, with a bit of milk chocolate and some kind of dry mineral character beneath. The flavor is pleasantly mild, with a light coffee bitterness and lactose sweetness predominating, although some herbal hops and bittersweet chocolate are also present. Overall, although the flavor is a bit dominated by the coffee character, it doesn’t change the impression of this beer as a pleasant, drinkable porter.

Kind of a boring coffee beer, but not bad. Has some bitter notes that balance the sweet roasty flavors and the strong coffee flavor.
