Pours opaque dark brown with cola edges. The 1/2 inch khaki head fades to a thin cap and ring on top and leaves strands of lace.

The smell is rather muted and consists of cocoa, faint vanilla and dark malt.

The taste is of malt, coffee, cocoa and toffee.

The texture is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

A solid (if not exceptional) example of an American porter.

The beer pours, from the bottle, a very dark, essentially black, liquid with decent dishwater foam. The aroma is railed with with darkly roasted malt--cocoa and chocolate--but there is some dark fruit which sweetens the scent. Surprisingly light on the palate. The organic malt doesn't weigh this thing down, nor does alcohol which is quite low. No strong flavors on the palate, but you know your drinking a porter as the rivulets quickly move toward the gullet.

Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Cola brown with a tan half finger head that dissipates to a foam ring. Ample lacing.

S: Cocoa nibs, malts, chocolate.

T: Espresso combines with chocolate and cocoa. Smooth and robust. Sweet. A well rounded porter.

M: medium with medium carbonation. Foamy.

O: I wasn't really expecting much from this one, but Eel River really delivers a nice porter. Lush, rich, satisfying.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours black with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows some chocolate, a little roasted malt, some faint coffee. Appetizing.
Relatively subtle flavours, some roast and soft liquorice but little else. A bit of acidity from the roast.
Nice moderate carbonation.
