A: heavy brown hue and no head (in a dimly lit bar).

S: malts, molasses, brown sugar and a whiff of hops.

T: coffee flavors, brown sugar or a kind of molasses sweetness. I like the feel of the hops help round things out...nice! Unique balance between the hops and sweetness, it works.

M: smooth down the hatch and medium carbonation. Good rounded out feel overall. A medium-plus body that finishes toasty.

D: not an all night drinker but a nice brew.

Tasted on-tap 06/04/07 at the Lucky Labrador Bewpub in Portland, OR.

Dark brown in color with a low brown head. A nice roasted malt and coffee aroma and flavor. A nice robust flavor profile esp. as it warms up. Smooth and medium bodied with a nice dry roasty finish.

This was one of my favorites of the day...

1/2 pint in a small goblet at the brewery.

See-thru very deeb ruby brown body with a finger of cream-colored foam. The head reduces to a 1/4 inch skim quickly, but that sticks around til then end. Nice sheets of lace.

This is a bold and robust porter. Burnt malt and coffee up front, followed by a surprising explosion of chocolate chips and tart cherry. A wave of citrusy hops joins the fun during the swallow and battles the burnt malt for attention during the finish. Body is thick and chewy.

Overall impression: Excellent porter.

On tap at Higgin's restaurant.

Appearance: dark brown almost black in color. Nice 2" tan head slowly falls to surface bubbles. Nice lacing develops.

Smell: soft roasted malt and chocolate sweetness are very mild but identifiable.

Taste: roasted malt, dark chocolates, molasses sweetness, and a bit of bitter coffee lingers in the background. A bit dry overall.

Mouthfeel: very smooth and dry from start to finish. Medium-heavy in body. The flavors briefly stick to the tongue after swallowing.

Drinkability: a solid porter here, but a bit heavier in body than expected. Worth a try if you see it on tap in town.

I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at Dan & Louis Oyster Bar in Portland.

Appearance: deep dark brown with plenty of haze. There's also a thin head of tan foam; a nice look.

Smell: lightly sweet and roasty aroma; mild but not bad.

Taste: moderately roasty with a light caramel character and a mild earthy hoppiness. A solid porter.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and concomitant creaminess. Good!

Overall: a straightforward, well-made but unremarkable porter. I like it, though.

Pint glass, on tap @ Portland a/p.
Pours dark re. brown w/negligible head, little CO2. Delightful
Bitter, roasted malt flavor w/coffee note finish. Thin mouthfeel.
Add a little more body & carbonation & it'd be a winner!

Had this at the brewery and it was a very good porter with big mouthfeel and lovely roasty coffee notes on the finish. It was hot outside and this beer was not the best choice but I still really liked the balance and big feeling for a lowish ABV. Would be great in the winter
