COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This coffee porter is brewed with chocolate and dark chocolate malts to give a robust backbone for the lactose (milk sugar) to build on and is finished with Mazarro’s coffee to create a beer with a silky mouthfeel, rich flavor, and the satisfying taste of coffee. 4.9% ABV

Poured from a 32 oz crowler. The pour is a light, maybe medium black with a great cap of tan head and some light soapy lace. You need to let this baby warm up to pick up the good aromatic offerings. I'm getting a lot of coffee. There is a nice lactose sweetness and a chocolate malt heaviness. Cycle says it's a porter, but here it's classified as a sweet stout. The flavor is coffee forward and then in gets really sweet. The chocolate malts that were heavy in the smell fall off in lieu of the lactose that dominates. The mouth feel is thin and real light with minimal carbonation and a lingering sweet chocolate covered coffee finish. I had expected so much more based on the smell ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crowler shared with koleminer20. Aroma is light, coffee and lactose, slightly metallic. Appearance is black, thin, light light light brown head. Taste is weirdly sour, but there is a definite coffee and lactose presence. Mouthfeel is almost flat, somewhat thick but pretty unpleasant. Overall, this is not real good.

Crushed a crowler of this while doing yard work on a 80 degree day. Was surprised by just how quickly the can disappeared. Great beer.

Draft @ Cycle. Brune foncée, col crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme au bouquet bien grillé, café moyen, note de lactose et un plein de grillé en rétro. Palais est malté, grillé, sucre perdurant, crémeux avec un fini portant pas mal de notes de lactose. Pointe d’amertume venant du café? Feels like Lagunita’s Brown Shugga’s little brother.

Cola pour with an off white head. Aroma of coffe, chocolate, lactose. Sharp coffe bitterness in the flavor, some odd slick umami notes as well. Bitter coffe finish, a touch to thin for my liking. Interesting enough.
