COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coffee porter released for Colorado Beer Week 2011.

On draft @ Sunset Grill and Tap. Nose of a fresh bag of Italian roast coffee. The coffee dominates the flavor with a lot of roasted malts. If you are a coffee lover , you are going to enjoy this. EXCELLENT at room temperature!!. I have nothing bad to say. I hope I get a chance to try this again. A great after dinner porter.

Hand pull @ Sugar Maple in Milwaukee. The beer is a black body with a really creamy tan head. The aroma and flavors are dominated by a smooth coffee. Coffee, some chocolate malts, deep roasted malts. The hand pull added a smooth velvety mouth feel. I quite enjoyed this beer even though I’m looking for Spring to occur...

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 Tap at brewery. Black, with a puffy tan head. Aroma is almost all coffee, with a touch of roasted malt. Taste is coffee throughout, with a bitter coffe-like finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Basically this is all coffee.

You’d better love coffee if you’re going to drink this because at is all you are going to taste - at first, I was all about this, but as the beer warmed, some of the undesirably characteristics of the coffee became too strong, such as the acidity and deep roast, that eventually started to taste like char - there is no nuance to how the coffee is used here, so while I still sort of like it, it is ultimately a weak attempt.

On tap @ Falling Rock. Fairly dark brown/black appearance with a tan head. Bitter coffee grounds, dark malty aroma. Bitter, roasty, coffee ground flavor on a dark malty body. Bitter coffee finish. I really dislike the texture of the coffee grounds and the fact that they so dominate the flavor.

draft at falling rock. Pours black with nice creamy brown head. Aroma is pure coffee, freshly ground coffee beans, bold, robust, and good smelling. Flavor is all roast and coffee but not in a bitter sense, with a chocolate sweetness. Very smooth, creamy, silky body. Really quite nice.
