The nose is wonderful. Like a chocolate mocha coffee. Taste is nice, very malty. Dry and long. It's too thin perhaps. And not especially complex. But otherwise a great beer.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is heavy on chocolate, with some coffee, caramel, and bread. Pretty potent. Chocolate stands out in the taste as well. Still contains coffee and caramel, with a chocolate aftertaste. A little sweet, but not overly so. Smooth and creamy when drinking. This one is very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Lucky’s celebrating my XXth birthday...a lady never tells! Really a mild mannered, coffee infused porter. The coffee was there but lurking in the background and not dominating. Really easy drinking with a lighter body. Fine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
32oz Growler from Beverage World in Fort O, GA. Served at around 45-50F.
Pours black with a decent tan head that fades quickly to a light wispy cap but leaves some nice lacing behind.
Aroma is very coffee-forward, and they’re some nice beans too, dark roasted malts, some chocolate, smoke/char, maybe a little caramel and bread as well, but mostly coffee and some smoke. Very good strength.
Flavor generally mirrors the aroma...a lot of coffee and a fair bit of smoke. Premium coffee, smoked malt, roasted malt, some chocolate, vanilla, caramel, a little earthy hops, moderate sweetness, mild bitterness, minimal alcohol.
Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied, moderate carbonation, somewhat sticky. A little on the thin side, but fits the style fine.
Really nice stuff. Excellent aroma, nice flavor. Quality beans and I like the smoky aspects as well. It would probably be in my best interest to get another growler of this before the keg kicks!

Dark porter color, beige/ lite briwn head.
F is the same but with a litte lacto sweetness and phlegmy.
Mild dry bitterness on finish.
Fuller than typical body...fairly dry but with a slick sugar feel underneath. 8/4/7/4/15

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at 1808 American Bistro during the Bell’s Tap Takeover. The beer pours brownish-black with a medium beige head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee and malt. Medium body with a roasty character and notes of dark chocolate and malt. The finish is malty with a coffee aftertaste. Above average overall.
