Nitro tap at Bailey's Taproom.
A: Dark brown pour, a bit translucent. About a 1 finger khaki head. Heady was quick dense and left amazing lacing while drinking.
A: milk chocolate dominates with coffee, vanilla and roasted malts mixed in.
T: big chocolate up front, and it continues well into the after taste. It's quite nice. Not overly sweet.
M: a tad watery, would've liked it a bit thicker. But, not bad. Quite creamy on nitro, and finished very nicely.
O: this is a great, easy drinking porter. I would like to compare nitro to regular tap. But, I would certainly order this again, or buy it in store.
Serving type: nitro-tap

Chocolaty brown beer capped with a khaki foam that recedes into a thin cap with curtains of lace. It smells like a chocolate milkshake with a bit of cold pressed coffee. Excellent. Taste is lightly bitter, milk chocolate, some espresso. Light sweetness is washed away for a clean mild chocolaty finish. Medium body is creamy. This is a tasty beer.
Serving type: bottle

I had this beer on-tap in a big taster glass at Oregon Brewers Festival.
Appearance: dark brown, nearly black with no haze. Quite an attractive beer.
Smell: rich, sweet chocolate with a lot of vanilla -- it's very desserty. However, there's this almost watered-down element to it which kind of takes a little away from the nice chocolate character.
Taste: it's quite sweet, rather like a milk stout. Chocolatey and creamy flavor as well; I like it.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and good creaminess. This works for me.
Overall: a dessert beer, to be sure, but I really like it. I will definitely be looking for it in bottles.
Serving type: on-tap
