COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust porter is dosed with freshly roasted coffee from the roaster across the street. The unique custom blend of coffee accents the earthy chocolate and caramel porter notes very well.

Cask sample. Near black in colour with soft carbonation. Aromas are of fruity British yeast, mild coffee, and chocolate syrup. Flavors are of malted milk, chocolate, light coffee, and more orchard fruit. Light bodied, even with the lower carbonation. Not bad, but I wish there was more coffee presence.

Nitro at GTMW, and one of my favorite beers from the weekend! Poured near black with the perfect nitro topper. The aroma picked up sweet, sweet coffee with lovely, complementary accents of chocolate and vanilla.. just what I needed. The flavor found sweet, roasty coffee throughout, with a little tangy green coffee around.. tasty coffee on the long finish. Buttery smooth through the palate with dense carbonation.. coating and delicious!

on tap at THT 1Oct2012, unfortunately this beer falls off quickly from the nose. It smells absolutely wonderful, but then its all downhill from there, the taste is good finish is off and mouthfeel thin.. just smell this and dont drink any

Tap @ Town Hall Tap Minneapolis. Pours a dark brown appearance with a light brown head. Mild coffee, a bit roasty, milky, light vanilla aroma. A bit roasty chocolate, fairly light bodied, coffee, light toasty flavor. Not bad but nothing special.

8/11/12. GTMW - nitro tap. Black pour with a fluffy tan head. Luxurious coffee nose along with chocolate and touches of sweet caramel. Lighter flavor with more coffee and some chocolate, cream, and caramel. People can argue for or against nitro, but this was definitely a tasty entry.

Pouring at GTMW 2012. Dark brown pour with a huge dark very dense tan head.. this beer just looks sexy! Monsterous java nose, over roasted malts. Mouth feel was something I had to call "fluffy". Nice coffee flavor mixed with milk chocolate and a light roasty aftertaste. Simply delicious, I’m not a huge coffee fan, but I could drink this all day.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Nitro tap at 2012 St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Nice brown pour with a medium, fluffy, tan head. Aroma is light coffee and milk chocolate. Flavor is light roasty malts, serious coffee, milk chocolate, and toffee. Full, creamy body with very little, soft carbonation but this was on nitro. Awesome coffee brew.
