4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great porter. Smooth, rich, bold without being too sweet. All the roasty goodness you want in a porter. A little bigger at 6% than most porters but not so boozy that it overwhelms the palate. Nice!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Ladyface. Darker pour with excellent mocha foam. Dusted with cocoa on top. Nose is intense coffee bean from the ground coffee dusted on the head. Mouthfeel is extremely thin for style but the flavor is spot on lactic coffee, dank chocolate. Quite dry and dusty. Heavy attenuation kills the rich palate expected for porter. So dry and things it gains a lactic lemony tartness. Get slightly less efficient yeast!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. The nitro gave it a luxurious, pillowy head. They sprinkled some coffee grounds on top of the beer. This added style points and really upped the coffee aroma in the beer (although it did make that last sip treacherous). The flavor of this beer didn’t quite match the aroma, but it was smooth and pleasant. Dry with slight roastiness. Carbonation (nitrogenation?) was a little lower than I would have wanted, but still a solid beer.

Very dark brown pour, creamy tan head from the nitro pour. Aroma is loaded with coffee, chocolate and strong roasted malt. Creamy and coffee laden flavor followed by some bitter chocolate and roasted malt. I love the coffee grind sprinkled on the top. Nice touch!
