A: The pour on this one is almost black with a creamy off-white head. S: The nose offers up huge coffee and roasted malt aromas with a nice dark chocolate note in there as well. A very mild licorice scent and a decent amount of molasses. Maybe a hint of smoke and brown sugar. T: As expecting, nice coffee flavor that lasts almost all the way through. There is a mild caramel sweetness to go with the molasses and dark brown sugar notes. Heavy on the roasted malts and dark chocolate. M: The body is edium to full with a medium carbonation. O: This was a really good beer. Bold coffee and roast flavors, but not overwhelming.

Not a bad coffee porter. The aroma is there and it is smooth and silky but could use a little less alcohol and more maltiness to really balance things out.

pushkinwow (2691) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2011
Sample on tap at OB. Black with tan head. Sweet and roasted malts, toffee, mild coffee. Bittersweet, medium bodied (thick for a porter), smooth with a very sweet finish that is dry. Combination of sweet and dry on the finish was off but liked the consistency.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2011
(On draught at Beachwood BBQ). Pours near black with a red hue (or maybe that is the lighting here). Tan head. Aroma has big coffee notes, dark bitter chocolate. Taste is sweet with some bitterness. Full bodied with sticky texture. Bitter, roasty finish. This is a nicely balanced beer-good mix of roast and sweetness. Really nice beer.

SDalkoholic (2365) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 11, 2011
On tap @ Pizza Port Ocean Beach: Poured with a minimal amount of head while the color was as expected a pitch black liquid. In the nose, there was a rich and roasty profile of blackened malts with a whiff of alcohol as well. The flavor was sweet and had an oily and sticky palate, but also had a base of rich roasted down malt that hinted towards bitter chocolate. Definitely would love to try this stout out with some bacon, eggs, hash browns, and some waffles or pancakes.
