COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coffee porter released for Colorado Beer Week 2011.

In honor of Craft Beer Weeks all around the US, Left Hand created a special one-off beer called Beer Week Sauce Porter. This American-style porter contains a fair amount of coffee; which is just the thing that you’ll need to keep going through this week!

On tap, poured a dark brown hue w/ small beige fizzy head. Bold coffee aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a mild bitter finish. Tastes are a nutty mild roast coffee and malts. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, and watery mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is a bit muted but has light coffee and roastiness...a touch of dark fruit...almost blueberry. Flavor has some dark chocolate and nice coffee...a bit of ash...some burnt bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty espresso.

ajnepple (2186) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2013
On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Black appearance with a small white head. Aroma and flavor of strong coffee, roasted malts, and light chocolate. Light to medium body, a little thin. Malty and roasty with a lingering, light bitter finish.

NachlamSie (2767) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Pint from draft at Cedar Creek Pub. Pours very dark with active carbonation and a small ring of a head. Aroma has some coffee in there, but I want more. It’s very subtle. It could almost pass for a standard roasty porter without the coffee. The flavor is ashy with a light milkiness, faint coffee and dark chocolate. Palate is medium and rather effervescent. This is a tasty beer, but it aggravates me that the coffee is so light. Weak sauce, indeed.

deyholla (6644) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 11, 2013
On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a near clear deep brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a nice rich bitter coffee note with backing roasted malts and dark grains. Flavor has the same rich coffee bitterness the mellows to a light finish of dark grains and roasted malts.

drjay44 (2640) - Salida, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Draft. Pours a medium thick, poorly retained beige head with some lacing, over an apparently clear dark brown black (SRM 35) body.....nose is coffee, light chocolate, minimal hops, no esters.....taste is moderately sweet lactose type tones with coffee, cocoa, chocolate hints, finishing with a moderate burnt coffee bitterness and light hops......mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, with a clean light acid finish. The coffee adjunct is a bit too dominant for the malt and hop backbones. If coffee tasting beers are your thing it is wonderful, if not, well. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7

Sampled at the brewery. This is a great coffee porter. The coffee is clean and not peppery. Chocolate, creamy, slight caramel. We had to order two, my wife wouldn’t share.

Had this beer very recently on tap at Merchants in Lawrence, so its a bit of a surprise that this was a 2011 beer. Very nice, though. Not much head, but a deep, rich coffee character.

jmikolich (1446) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Tap at Meddlesome Moth, Dallas Tx, a thin coffee porter which has loads of coffee nose, minimal head, and surprisingly watery body, almost like there was too much coffee, then again no vegetals that I found which make it quite tasty.
