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!

adnielsen (9090) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2011
On tap @ Falling Rock. Fairly dark brown/black appearance with a tan head. Bitter coffee grounds, dark malty aroma. Bitter, roasty, coffee ground flavor on a dark malty body. Bitter coffee finish. I really dislike the texture of the coffee grounds and the fact that they so dominate the flavor.
