OVERALL RATING:

Sight: Opaque coloration with caramel-bronze note. Very thin head when poured.

Scent: Artificial vanilla-flavored coffee.

Flavor: Well, artificial vanilla-flavored coffee.

Feel: Like someone poured just a little bit of seltzer into an artificial vanilla-flavored iced coffee.

Did you get the point? Where are we, Dunkin Donuts? Did they start brewing beer in addition to coffee? This tastes eerily similar to their (artificial vanilla-flavored) coffee; or, if you prefer Starbucks, the dregs of a French press. And it tastes as it smells, sadly. The vanilla flavor is really overwhelmingly fake and then the stale, out-all-day coffee flavor hits you after. And you thought having regular coffee breath was bad…

Concluding remarks: Drinking this brings us back to our childhood. No, our moms didn’t pour beer in our sippy cups (BUT WE DID LATER IN COLLEGE). What we mean by this is that this Wolaver’s Coffee Porter reminds us of an alcoholic coffee cream soda float, albeit a subpar one.  Or, like someone poured seltzer into your flavored iced coffee. Yum?

And yeah, yeah, we like organic things; but we’ll stick with the wheat grass shots, thank you very much. (Is it bad if we add some vodka, though?)
