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. Weak roasted aroma, some coffee. Black colour, clear red shine. Small light brown head. The flavour is a little sweet, but rather pleasant, roasted and with coffee, like the aroma. Mouthfeel on the light side, but acceptable.

On tap during the Milk Stout Nitro release party during GABF 2011 week. Dark dark brown with a light tan head. Nice roasty coffee aroma and roasty black malt. Flavor had a lot of brewed coffee overtones...lots. Rich dark malt, a touch of chocolate, and a subtle light bitterness on the finish. Sweet and dessert like but on a quaffable medium-full body. Just lovely!

Tmoney99 (10712) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Draft. Poured a black color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted coffee sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

ZOMGGGGs Smellz like coffee! Tastes like coffee! Looks like coffee! Medium tan head with little lacing and stability (probably from acids in the coffee? maybe! WHO KNOWZ!), Beer is the color of coffee... (SRM seems to be right for the style tooo!) Tastes like coffee toooo and has mild milk chocolate flavors that barely poke through the coffee’s bitter-like astringency. Overall I’d say it’s pretty good. AND MY FIRST BEER RATING!!!! WOOP WOOP!!!!

tightslice (203) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 5, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 Draft Pour @ Stubbie’s & Steins. Pours a Rich Black/Brown probably somewhere between a Pantone Black 2 C / 4 C. Strong coffee aromas. A waterlogged torpedo of espresso and dark chocolate that could use a little malted mud to slow it’s roll.

Hits with the righteous hammer of pure coffee, almost no depth or complexity but a pretty solid coffee taste. Too thin, whatever.

arminjewell (6217) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2011
On tap at the brewery, nice dark brown with khaki colored head. Aroma has notes of coffee and espresso, some chocolate, roast, and slight burnt toast notes. Taste is very coffee forward, like drinking an iced coffee but as a beer. Lots of coffee bean and espresso notes, with some dark chocolate, toffee, roast and bread notes, finishing nice and bitter from the roast and coffee. Delicious!

Tallahassee, Fl - Proof - on tap. Very deep dark brown pour with a nice sticky khaki colored head. Aroma of fresh brewed coffee - not strong like Starbucks - but your everyday main street coffee shop; hint of chocolate to top it off. Flavor has those same elements of coffee shop coffee. Hints of licorice make their way through in the back end - brief chocolate notes. Mouthfeel is decently thick - but not thick enough to match the boldness of the flavor. Overall, pretty solid though.

8/26/11. On tap. Dark brown pour, almost black, with a small tan head that fades and laces a little. Definite coffee aroma with some milk chocolate and juuust a touch of tartness. Definite coffee flavor at all, again with milk chocolate. It’s a tad thin in my eyes, but the flavors are there.

On tap at Proof. Big roasty chocolate aroma. Taste is bitter chocolate, coffee, earthy and roasty. Thin palate. Ok.
