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 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.

tourette (211) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2012
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 (701) - 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.

BelgianBeerGal (3197) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2012
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.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2012
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!

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2012
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.
