This is a great beer! Fairly dark pint pour with full finger off white head. Nose is fairly sharp, with good roasted malts and healthy coffee notes present and light vanilla. Flavor follows without being too over powering. Roasted malts throughout and again, more coffee. Delicious coffee! Lighter body and quite drinkable.

Tmoney99 (12748) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Draft. Poured black color with an average fizzy tan head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy roasted coffee and chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted coffee and chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good and my expectations where met.

Approximately a third of a 32-oz. crowler, consumed on 10-29-15. Canned on 10-25-15. Pours a dark brown with bubbly, taupe head. Strong coffee scent. Highly coffee flavor atop a quite good underlying porter beer. Roasted coffee been. Mild but unmistakable in its coffeeness. Really nice. I normally am not a coffee guy; in fact, I generally loathe it, but somehow this works for me. I suspect the key is the lactose that counters the normal astringent, feces-like coffee affect. Light to medium body. Surprisingly good for my tastes; in fact, this has got to be the best coffee beer I’ve ever had (although I do generally avoid them).

PhillyCraft (4765) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Draft at Cycle, pours amber black with small off white head. Not much lace to note. Carbonation is on the lighter side. Aroma is milk chocolate, caffe late, roast, grain, and proper malt. Flavor is ultra smooth with some lactose, coffee, hot chocolate, hazelnut, and other roasty malt notes. Medium bodied with a pleasant finish that isn’t too sweet or roasty. Excellent
