8oz pour at Torst. Pours a watery, deep brown with some ringing off white head. Nose has a lot of fresh, fragrant coffee, nutty too, soke brown sugar, hints of dried berries, toast. Flavor has a nice blend of sweet malts, brown sugar, hints of toffee, then high quality coffee. Not too dark. Dry finish.

Jimmy’s No. 43, NYC tap: Pours dark brown with a very cream, almost nitro looking, head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate, both of the smoothest kind (not that rough bitter stuff here). Taste is smooth medium roast coffee coupled with milky chocolate. That said, the body is pretty light, and this makes for easy drinking.

On tap at brewery. Nice coffee aromas. Coffee comes through in taste as well. One negative was the thin mouthfeel but overall a very nice porter that I will drink again.

Growler courtesy of Joel. Pours a deep brownish black body with thin brown lacing. Aroma is smooth roast, cocoa, light earth, vanilla and bitter chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium and smooth - very sessionable for a coffee porter. Very solid, looking forward to trying more offerings from RD.

In short: A standard coffee black ale with a little nutty twist. Good session beer.
How: Tap at Tap-NY festival 2013.
The look: Near black body topped by a long-lasting small tan head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose has a moderate coffee presence, medium roast, a certain nuttiness, a bit of a mocha coffee thing going on. Taste is creamy nutty malts, medium roast, some chocolate, some coffee beans, brownies cake. Medium body with a medium carbonation. All ratings so far are very high for this beer, I must be missing something, it is a beer well made, but I thought it was an average take on the style. Good session beer. A decent beer enjoyed at the Tap-NY festival, and the best part about being a beer geek is we can use the free time we have from not getting laid to go to more beer festivals.

On tap at the brewery. Really smooth coffee flavor, not overpowering or bitter. All around a solid porter!
