yeah...takes a nice mellow beer and turns it into something I’d want for breakfast. pretty weak on beerness (tastes like carbonated coffee), but Portola coffee is good stuff.

Pours a murky, hazy dark brown color with nice tan head. Aromas of big coffee, hazelnuts, malt, and a bit of molasses. Silky palate of coffee, creamer, sweet malt, and bitter chocolate. Semi dry finish, nice.

On tap at CBC Clerkenwell during the Pizza Port Tap Takeover - London. Pours clear brown with a light, creamy head. Loads of coffee in the nose - Dunkin Donuts to be specific - with subtle cocoa notes. Light to medium sweet flavor with big DD coffee character (which I like) and moderate chocolate. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sturdy coffee finish with light earth, some milk chocolate. Glorious, rich coffee throughout. I could drink buckets of this stuff.

slightly turbid dark brown pour with a dense, creamy, khaki head. Really nice coffee aroma. Sweet toffee and chocolate, a bit of molasses, and roasted malt. Good balance of roast and sweetness to the flavor. Tons of coffee flavor, a slight creaminess, toffee, caramel, and molasses. Good chocolate, slight bitterness, and very light earthy hops.
