Aroma:
Malt- med chocolate, with high levels of coffee, yet very low amts of roast. Hops - low amt of earthyness. Esters/Phenols/Other - Very low generic neutral ale esters. Just enough to remind me this is a beer. Very intense coffee aroma but not acrid or toasty. Suggests medium roast.

16 / 20

Mouthfeel:
Body- medium. Carb- very low. Mild level of warming. Finished with a med sting.
3 / 5

Overall:
Very good example of a coffee beer. While the porter character is present this beer is all about coffee. Increase in carb could help drive the already present coffee aromas & flavors to the nose & palate. Clairty, by more carful packaging, will help appearance & possibly foam. Adjusting coffee roast and method of extraction may lower the slight acrid sting on finish.
