On-tap at the downtown Portland location, a late-night tap hook-up that I chanced upon.

This beer appears a clear, very dark mahogany hue, with one finger of thinly soapy ecru head, and little subsequent lace. It smells of bready malt, and dusty, earthy hops. The taste is sweet bready malt, some mild oily nuttiness, and soft earthy, leafy hops. The carbonation is quite low, the body medium weight, and well, kind of creamy. It finishes pretty much in kind, the sweet nutty malt and earthy hops still holding sway.

A decent strong amber ale, the elevated booze never really materializing, although it may have played a part in the ramped up sweetness as things moved along. One was good enough for me. (705 characters)

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.

The beer appears brown and mostly transparent. Ruby sunburst highlights appear when held to the light. The head is light tan in color, and leaves sparse lacing on the snifter.

The aroma is pretty weak, and doesn't gain much momentum as the beer warms. Scents of light roast with alcohol are there if you bury your nose in the glass.

The beer is really creamy and smooth on the palate. The flavor offers more than the aroma, with some subtle toffee notes and mild chocolate. In general, all the flavors just seem subdued. I was expecting / hoping for something with some more flavor and nuance. That said, the beer is still enjoyable and drinkable.

The body is thin to medium, with light carbonation. Alcohol presence is there in the finish, but not harsh.

I'm glad to have tried it, but don't see myself ordering it again. (857 characters)
