Pours a clear bronze color. About one finger beige head. Short lived head. No lacing.

Aroma is weak coffee. A little smoky and woody.

Taste is thin, very thin. Good roasted malt, light coffee. That's about it.

Mouthfeel is light to medium body. Very watery. Very drinkable.

Overall, it's decent. It's not at all what I hoped for. Too watery, hardly a porter. Needs more body. I'd drink it again, but I wouldn't recommend it.

One of their better beers. Aromas and flavors of coffee and other roasted notes. Decent color with a medium palate.

About what I expected. Was hoping it would be a little thicker, or more like a porter/stout. I’d compare this to a medium or slightly darker brown ale. Denisty on the thin side. Flavors of caramel malt, coffee, light cinnamon. Could use a little more bitterness, but an OK seasonal.

Has a good taste of coffee to it, but not so as to overpower the beer. Malty and not bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle. Clear medium brown color, small off white head. Dust and malt aroma. Medium body with a sweet creamy malt flavor with slight gut pepper currents and a decent finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a finger and half of head on a dark brown body. Aroma is roasted malt, mild coffee and wood. Taste has a nice coffee flavor throughout, malty. Nice. Texture is softer. Quite enjoyable.

I’m not sure if mine was too old, or too cold. Not much head, not much aroma, not much flavor, thin. Meh.

Clear deep amber with a thinnoff white foamy top. Nice mellow malty nose that’s amberish and lightly roasty with a nice cool cold-brew tone. Smooth semisweet amberish flavor with light cold brew flavors, particularly toward the finish. A little basic, a little lighter than it needs to be but it’s tasty.

24 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, rapidly collapsing beige head, with minimal lacing, over a clear brown (SRM 20) body.......nose is light coffee, mild roasted malts, with toast, cracker, mild dried fruit tones, no hops......taste is mild coffee, light roasted malts, dry throughout, finishing with light hop bitterness, no esters, balance to the coffee and malts......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is a pleasant, easy drinking but quite light and simple beer. It misses the stated style of Porter with the mild malt body, but could have been called a Spice/Herb/Vegetable, if the base were a Dark Lager. BJCP 6/3/10/4/5

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark amber with a tight, white, foamy head that dissipates slowly. Aromas of yeast, chocolate, and a slight hint of lemon. Taste is mildly sweet with watered-down flavors of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Body is medium and on the watery side. Texture is thin with average carbonation. Finish is on the astringent side and has a bit of a "metallic tang" to it. Overall, I found the watery flavor and body to be underwhelming.
