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!

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 (11311) - 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.

tap - Black pour with a small light tan head and some lacing. The aroma is of ground coffee and chocolate. The flavor is rich and roasty with coffee and chocolate notes. Mocha comes to mind. It’s medium to full bodied with a roast coffee finish. Good.
