Presentation: On tap @ the Isaquah Brewhouse (Rogue), Isaquah WA...into a cone pint...
Appearance: Very dark brown with a clinging tan lace that seems to stay for a while.
Smell: Mildly sweet in the nose with hints of charcoal, roasted malts and a touch of hops.
Taste: Silky smooth with a nice medium bodied mouth feel. After the luscious mouth feel come the flavour which is quite malty ... light acidic twang from the roasted malts, a little dark roasted coffee/chocolate flavour and an underlying toasted biscuit taste are balanced with a perfect combo of hop and roasted malt bitterness. The lingering after taste is of faded burnt sugar, drying grain and a slightly warming alcohol. A wonderful yet delicate hop character helps to round this brew also.
Notes: Yum! There are good porters and then there are great porters ... this one goes down as a great one, no doubt!
Serving type: on-tap

a. Deep dark brown with a .5 finger head when poured into a pint glass. Lacing on the glass is thin.
s. Coffee and malt.
t. Excellent balance with coffee and malt. Not finding the chocolate
side of the mocha, but who cares - taste is a notch above above outstanding (on this scale).
m. A bit dry on the finish, but good hidden carbonation.
o. A porter that is a step above most coffee porters. I find some coffee porters to be overwhelming - the mocha toned it down nicely.
Serving type: bottle
