Pours dark brown with a tan head ghat faded to the edge of my glass. Aroma is distinctly coffee with some chocolate and caramel. Coffee taste is prevalent followed with notes of chocolate. A little more carbonated than I would have liked, but I am definitely pleased with this porter.

This is a surprisingly smooth porter with an excellent mild coffee flavor. Would (and did) buy it again.

Robe brune assez limpide. La mousse ne tient pas. Arômes café, fumé, chocolat noir avec des notes de vanille. Goût café, chocolat noir, fruits noirs. Final café longue en bouche. Texture sirupeuse avec une carbonatation fine. Longue en bouche. Une très bonne porter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOD 9/2/15. Nearly black pour. Outstanding head volume, lacing and retention.
Outstanding nose of rich dark roast coffee with a hint of roasted barley over a subtle chocolate.
Body is a bit light for the style coming in at heavy light body with a semi-smooth texture. Above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a fair burst in the finish.
The flavor profile is good. It is balanced but not rich in flavor which hurts its complexity. Coffee is present and dominate, but not intense. The middle brings a subtle sweetness and also subtle hop bitterness. The finish is a slow fade of weak coffee.

Dark with red hue/ mahogony. Good creamy head, good spotty lacing. Aroma is sweet nutty roasty with almond vanilla coconut with cocoa, mild espresso/coffee.Slick lactose like. somewhat of a grassy earthy herbal. Same in taste which is saying a lot but aroma is more vivid than taste. Some mild acidity Good coffee porter. best one Ive had in a while. Well done for a bit milder/medium porter.

Bottle at home. All I can say is, throw me a beer that you brew, I’d soon move it.

Pours translucent mahogany from the bottle with a thin off white head that leaves no lacing in the glass. Aroma is almost nonexistent, maybe some cola in there but not much. Medium carbonation on the tongue with a heavy dark roasted malt flavor. Backend has a coffee aftertaste. Nice porter.
