Another unimpressive porter from Six Rivers. This was the only beer that I gave a 5 for appearance though as I thought it looked exactly like it should in the glass. Good head and some lacing left on the glass.
Very watery palette and not a ton of the coffee or chocolate flavor I was waiting for.

High quality dark beer. Deep brown colour, some head. Nice flavour of coffee, maybe some chocolate too.

A - Pretty dark almost black with a 3 finger head.
S - Coffee as expected, chocolate, earth
T - Coffee follows the aroma, roasty coffee, dark bitter chocolate, some oats too.
M - The body is medium to light but also creamy. The finish is dry
O - A nice coffee porter but it could use more flavors. The aroma is the best part but then the taste and mouthfeel fall short.

Bottle; poured a dark brown color with a light brown head. Aroma of coffee, caramel, and oats. Nice, pleasant aroma. Flavor was good, but had something a bit off about it. A bit too much sweetness, and some weird fruity notes. Ok overall.

Bottle; dark brownish in color. Aroma of coffee, nuts and roasted. Flavor was the same and quite drinkable.

Bottle: black-brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of coffee, roast grain, and something peppery. Flavor is creamy coffee, roast grain, somewhat sweet-tart malt, and smoke. Flavor is okay, just not a standout.

Coffee, black licorice nose, smoky, full-bodied palate, finishing cleanly. A good porter, not a great one.

Dark brown pour, small head. Lighter coffee aroma - think a coffee with milk and sugar thats been iced down for the summer. Coffee is there but fights with bitter chocolate for your attention with neither really winning out. Average mouthfeel. Nothing offensive but nothing to get excited about either.

Infused coffee, like cold coffee but not bad. Pretty basic underlying porter. Thanks for hooking me up Stephen. Drinkable. Deep brown body, no head.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Starts off with a promising dark chocolate, cherry and woody aroma coming off a relatively clear dark brown body with a quickly dissipating tan head. The first taste is more dark and bittersweet chocolate with some candied fruit sweetness. However, like a lot of coffee beers, a tongue pucking sourness thatís not particularly enjoyable shows up and starts to build with each sip. This eventually becomes the dominate component until itís really more of a dark sour beer. Not bad, but not great.

Smells of coffee and some butter. This looks good but thatís about it. The flavor is fairly strong of coffee but the sweetness and chewiness I just donít like very much. The bomber is way too much for me.
