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!

Comes out of the tap black - not sable, not very very very dark brown, but BLACK, black as Darth Vader’s armor, with a fine-bubbled tan head that leaves generous lacing. Smoky aroma has a strong note of quality roast coffee and hints of chocolate and licorice. Flavor has a roast malt core and notes of quality mocha and molasses with a hint of caramel, fairly sweet but not overly so. Texture is a teeny on the thin side for a porter, but has good fizz and smoothness. Very worthy!

On tap at the rackhouse pub, 10oz pour. Dark black, pretty standard appearance for the style. The smell was very robust coffee grounds and beans, almost like when you are smelling different colognes and the salesperson gives you the little coffee can to clear your nasal palate, nice. Flavor is strong coffee but more like the grounds swimming at the bottom than good coffee. This was decent but the aroma was better than the taste by far.

on tap at O’Niell’s. Pitch black with average-sized light brown head. Good lacing throughout the pint. Aroma is malty, with predominant notes of roasted chocolate malt and coffee. Full bodied with creamy texture; softly carbonated. Flavor is somewhat sweet and strongly resembles coffee. Enjoyable.

On draught at O’Neill’s In Albuquerque. Pours a deep opaque black with a lasting tan foamy head. Big coffee aroma. Medium body with great creamy mouthfeel. Rich dark malt flavor complemented by chocolate and coffee flavors. Minimal hops presence. Very nice.

On tap at HopCat. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee, dark roasted malt and notes of peat and light caramel. Taste is somewhat acidic with heavy coffee, dark roasted malts, mild chocolate and a touch of sweet malt. Finishes up acidic with a strong coffee flavor.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scipio (830) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2012
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.
