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.

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

Thick and earthy with a stubborn head on its shoulders. Dark rich undertone that reminds me or woring on the farm in the dirt. It is so dark it looks like you need to spoon it out and into your mouth. Very little light makes it way through when you hold it up. Not much of an aroma until you sip it.

Appears a very dark red brown color with a very small white head.

It smells of chocolate, slightly smoky malts, caramel and a tad bit of citrus.

It tastes initially quite chocolate like, there is a subdued caramel flavor, a bit of hop bitterness, a mild coffee flavor. The flavor combination is really smooth the flavors of the beer match with each other very well.

The carbonation is moderate low and it adds to the smoothness of the beer.

For a dark beer this is quite drinkable because the flavors blend so nicely with each other I could easily have a few of these.

This is a great porter, it is better on tap but it is still very nice in bottle.
