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!

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.

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.

drowland (7876) - Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2011
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.

jcr (2544) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Draft. Deep brown body. Tan head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke, char and molasses in the background. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture and moderate to lively carbonation. Smoky taste which is unusual for a porter. Some chocolate and coffee notes in the taste. OK.

Tap. Deep brown in color with a small khaki head. Aroma is straight up coffee and nothing much else. Taste is sweet with loads of coffee up front, some dark chocolate, and a slightly bitter finish. Medium body and slick. Too much coffee and sweetness with this beer for me.

Draft at Spinnerstown Hotel meet the brewer dinner. Preview of Philly Beer Week. Aroma of dark coffee. Pours midnight black with a dark tan head. Taste is distinct coffee up front followed by a quick malty tea-like finish that lingers slightly on the tongue

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Draft at Jake Melnick’s. Pours a deep brown black, tannish head. Nose is heavily of coffee. Some malt does peek through as well. No really hop aromatics, this is all about the coffee. On taste, Hugely roasty, again, coffee roast. Not a lot else going on, though some sweetness comes through from the grains and seems to restrain the coffee eventually. Not a bad beer, just very one-note.
