Had many laughing dogs and i must say iím disappointed with this one. Lactate taste in the finish. This coffee porter is missing the thickness one would expect at 9% abv. Almost a pop n pour for me, but this is alcohol and iím not going to let my sink consume it. My house is only 17 years old so it would be like serving a minor.

Dark brown almost black pour with a light tan head. Aromas of coffee with notes of cocoa and toffee. Flavor is big roasted coffee at first with plenty of malts to back it up. Slight sharpness on the front of the palate that I canít quite put my finger on. Overall, pretty good brew and nice coffee character to it. Bottle courtesy of DandyWolfFloyd, thanks man!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A goos brew when I consider the whole experience. On tap a pint of this is a monster. The pour is completely opaque and dark black with a finger of sticky tan head. The nose is reserved but poignant with big notes of cocoa amd espresso with big robust roasted malt aromas. Overly sweet in the middle with a ton of heavy roasted notes along with bitter dark espresso. The finish has a moderate bitterness but alot of residual sweetness. Overall this beer has a solid profile of coffee and roasted malts but is overly sweet

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black coffee with tan, thick creamy head.
Aroma - Brown bread, French roast coffee, hint of dark fruit
Taste - Brown bread taste, very dark roasted coffee and malt, raisins, slight chocolate note but quickly over taken by coffee.
Palate - very bready mouthfeel with a nice tart coffee finish that lingers.
Very excellent beer with a great strong flavor. Iím a big fan of the coffee in the taste, but the aroma is dominated by coffee and not very balanced. Very enjoyable for sipping, but also very drinkable if hanging out with friends. Highly recommended.

22 oz bottle served in a Porter Bar goblet.
A: Pours very dark brown, coffee colored, with a small tan head that quickly reduces to a thin partial coat. Decent lacing.
S: Aromas of sweet and dark roasted grains and coffee dominate. Some fruit and alcohol esters.
Flavor: Sweet and chocolate malts with a solid dark roasted grain taste yet minimal burnt elements. A mildly bitter finish with both roasted malts and coffee.
M: Full bodied with moderate carbonation and very smooth.
O: A good coffee porter but neither the porter base nor the coffee are exceptional.
