Bitter aroma that is trying to put off some roasted notes but they’re almost burnt instead. Good appearance with dark brown almost blocking out light. Almost glows when held to light. Lacing is light average for porters. Taste goes with aroma. A good porter with roast flavors but the coffee comes through too burnt and bitter but still very drinkable. The palate is what keeps this beer on the upper half of the porter style. The carbonation is perfect and the beer just barely sticks to the palate. Any longer and the burnt coffee flavor would be unbearable. Overall this is a solid porter that needs work with the coffee addition. Maybe cold brew coffee instead of espresso?

Overly coffee brown ale / porter. Opaque brown pour with white head. Aroma is coffee and grassy piney hops. Taste is coffee chocolate and more coffee.

great label, subpar to par beer. Big coffee flavors, kinda like a southern tier type beer, over done flavors, ok. Base beer very plain

Smells like a butt hole factory, but tastes pretty smooth. Dark pour. Dry stout flavor. Get passed the smell and you're good.

Location: 22 oz bottle from Half Time, 11/25/12

Aroma: The nose has a little coffee, a little roast, some burnt notes, earth, and hints of dark chocolate
Appearance: A dark brown beer with a huge, foamy brown head that fills the glass and leaves lots of lace
Flavor: It is not overly sweet, more roasted malts, leaning burnt, with a medium bitter/chocolate finish
Palate: The body of this one is medium, it feels a little creamy, with average carbonation, and a dryish finish
Overall Impression: Prior to purchasing this beer I had never heard of Three Heads, but if there is any place to learn about a small NY brewery, it has got to be Half Time. Anyway, as far as this beer goes, it is pretty solid, but nothing more. The nose is fine, the pour is fine (though maybe it has a little too much head), the taste is fine (though a touch better then the nose), and the feel is fine. Overall, "fine" really feels like the right word to describe this one.

March 9, 2012 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs & mabel. bomber c/o blankboy. Deep clear amber-red with some tiny suspended black floaties and a huge fluffy lasting tan/beige pancake batter glossy head. Aroma is nutty, some sweetened mild coffee -sweet, a little lactic. Taste is nutshell, stronger coffee, not lactic or nearly as sweet as the aroma, a bit of alcohol (7+). Average body, mild carbonation, a bit astringent with a reasonably long dry nutty slightly herbal finish. Decent.

Poured this beer....instant foam top to bottom. Took me almost an hour to pour a pint. Flavor was okay once I finally got to try it, by then it was pretty warm. Ended up throwing the test into the sink. Probably just a bad bottling job. Nevertheless, i did not enjoy this brew.

Theydon_Bois (14285) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2012
Tap at the Ginger Man, Manhattan - 29/05/12. Dark brown approaching black with a moderate tan head. Big cofffee nose allied to a little sweetish malt and a touch of fruit. Blast of fresh coffee in the taste Light to medium in body, moderate carbonation, smooth finish. A very well done coffee porter, did what it said on the tin and didn’t dissappoint!
