3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear medium to dark garnet brown with a 2 finger, creamy kakhi head that has great retention and leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is full of nutty light roast coffee, dark caramel, roast, toffee and very light fruity esters. Flavor is definitely coffee centered, but a bit more floral and fruity than the aroma, some caramel, roast and char, but the coffee is definitely in the forefront. Light to medium bodied, with a creamy, sticky entry, light, but fairly sharp carbonation and slightly more dry finish. Good, but not a great implementation of coffe in beer, it tasted more like a coffee sweetened with malt syrup than a beer brewed with coffee.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A brown body with a tan head. Nice retention and some lace. Aroma had a heavy roasted malt presence. Mild cocoa and some coffee. There was a slight astringent note to it. Flavor initially had a bitterness like stale coffee. It balanced out a bit with sweet chocolate malts. Slightly dry finish. Light mouth feel. Slightly disappointing.

11.2fl oz bottle. Pours a clear, deep, ruby/brown with an off white, film of a head. Aroma is deep with smooth notes of coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste is balanced. Mild coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malts with a short, coffee bitter aftertaste. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a slightly dry finish. Very drinkable. Overall a great coffee porter. The coffee is there but not overdone like a lot of others. Very drinkable.

Geruch geht krass Richtung Zartbitterschokolade und Röstgerste. Im Geschmack leicht sauer, zusätzlich Aschegeschmack. Kaum Bitter.
Schmeckt wie ein Aschenbecher.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2014 Pours a clear, ruby-tinted brown color with a tan head. Pungent, pleasant, freshly ground coffee aroma. Medium body. Wet texture. Coffee flavor up front, but bitters a bit too much and too quickly.
