On-tap at the brewpub: Super dark brown nearly black in color, thin light tan cap, lacing in small and short sheeting leaving some bigger globs as it breaks up. Aroma is the equivalent of coffee ice cream topped with milk chocolate sauce. Not overly strong, quite welcoming, clean, and delightful to wiff in. Flavors of iced coffee and smooth milk chocolate decorate the entire palate. Smooth and inviting, mixing favorably without any hint to whether the coffee or chocolate is stronger. Always equally distributed between the two. The chocolate keeps a sweeter edge while the coffee drys it out. Great balance. Feel is about medium with a mega soft smoothness and nice drying tones mixed with sweetness. A very nice porter here, the flavors aren’t huge, its got just enough flavor and body to create a finely smooth semi-mild treat. Fantastic balance and nearly perfect flavors, I was hoping for just a nudge more coffee, but it’s still a wonderful porter that any lover of porters would enjoy.

I’m not sure if this was supposed to resemble Irish coffee or if it’s a dry/Irish style porter - whatever that would be. I don’t know - more confusion because someone tried to be creative with the name. This has a dark tan and brown head with a deep black body. Robust and creamy nose of milk chocolate and ice cream, with some rich fudge and coffee notes as well - a very striking and unique aroma. Silky and smooth on the tongue - very sweet ice cream texture, robust and deep, like French roast coffee. I want more.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 16, 2005
GABF 2005: Nearly opaque with a small light brown head. The aroma is that of coffee, milk chocolate, roasted malt, and light lactic twang. The flavor is straight up standard porter with the expected nutty and smoky finish that followed a light mocha and coffee taste. The feel was good for the style, silky and medium-bodied. Overall, nicely drinkable.
