4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Growler, shipped to my by Hopscotch, cheers!! Shared @ tasting. Huge, finger bruising pop to release the fliptop.. Ouch. Anyway, it poured a dark brown beer with a huge, massive beige head on top. Aroma has coffee notes, chocolate, cream and dark molasses present. Flavor is medium sweet with big coffee touches again. Chocolate fades a bit in the background. Aftertaste is sweet and malty. Very nice brew!

Growler from the brewpub, shared with MrHangover. Thanks! Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy off-white head. The aroma is yeast, red berry, sharp citrus fruit. The flavour is moderate sweet light bitter with a zesty big yeast cherry palate. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. A superb beer and very lucky to taste this. It kinda makes me want to take the trip to the US for more!

Growler from Eric - thanks! Swingtop growler blew its shit when I popped it. Had a street full of foam and a pant leg full of beer. Pours a dark brown with reddish highlights. Huge foam head. Nice light sweetness in this, balances out the roast very well.

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(9/23/13) Pours, from a 6 day old growler, a very light, clear cola with a half finger of loose, light khaki head.
The nose is quite splendid. The name absolutely fits this brew because the nose is medium roast coffee with notes of sugar and cream. It’s shockingly spot on. Aside from the hint of chocolately malt, this totally smells like iced coffee.
The taste is not nearly as complex as the nose - mostly a black coffee roastyness. There’s a decent malty sweetness and breadyness, and even quite a bit of hops coming through (for a porter).
The mouthfeel is quite thin, bordering on being watery. I like porters to be silky. Carbonation was on the low side.
Again, the nose was fantastic on this brew - simply wonderful. This is definitely a solid porter, but not in the upper ranks. It’s better than a number of porters out there, but the lack of complexity in the taste and the thin mouthfeel kept it average. However, I can’t be too harsh because I am sure a growler is not the perfect medium from which to imbibe.

a decent porter who’s name fits it perfectly, with lots of coffee notes, some mild earthy cocoa in there too, a milk of milk stout creaminess on the palate. very nice, albeit a bit syrupy to drink a lot of.
