Tastes and smells exactly like an iced coffee. Which is good if that’s what you are looking for

This one poured a darker red color with a fluffy nitro beige head. Aroma was of lots of coffee, some latte mliky notes and light earthy tones. Flavor was much the same, just straight coffee and lightly toasted malts, nothing else getting in the way. A great session coffee beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not bad for a coffee porter. On tap at the bocktown. Nice dark pour. Decent creamy head. Smells like good coffee, what else? Good coffee taste without going over the top. Not rude at all. Decent co2. Some black coffee bitter in the finsh, but that’s to be expected. An easy beer to like. Must be less than 5%.

Pours deep brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has nice light roasted coffee...like a breakfast roast. Flavor is good coffee...bitter and roasty. Mouthfeel is light and a bit thin with a fresh roasted coffee finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Bocktown event 4/21/12. Very tasty porter with an impressive palate and rich complexity. The opaque brown pour is a lighter brown than some other porters, creamy head. Bitter/roast scent. Medium/light body with a creamy texture. The taste has a coffee start but mellows into a deep chocolate with a bitter sweet finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour with a thin light tan head. Strong coffee aroma wafts up from the glass. Not overly roasted, but some wisps of traditional porter elements. Flavor is dominated by a robust blend of gourmet coffee. Smells more like a light roast with subtle vanilla undertones than a bold Columbian. Hints of molasses and bitter roasted malts. Palate is light but still full enough as far as porters go. Quite a delicious session porter.
