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.

Nose of coffee. Mellow coffee and chocolate palate. Really smooth beer and finish is awesome.

Bacterial (1417) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Light brown malty pour with a creamy tan head, served on nitro. Super creamy. Malt. Coffee. No bitterness from hops or coffee or chocolate or anything here. Ultra smooth. A little thin on the body for a porter style, but quite tasty.

Nsanders (487) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Tap on nitro at town hall lanes. Chestnut brown with a tall khaki head. Big coffee, malty, biscuits and earthy hop. Great balance of light sweet and dry bitterness. Lighter body, but creamy from the nitro. Solid porter.

badgerben (4387) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Black color with a thick head. Moderate coffee and roasted barley aroma. The coffee flavor seems like a very light blend, enough to notice it, but kind of buried by the chocolate and and roasted barley. Thinish body.

piscator34 (1949) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
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.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 12, 2012
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.
