First had: on tap at Laurelwood Public House, Portland, OR

Poured brown-black with a small tan head that retained fairly well and left some soapy lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma, dark malts and a bit of coffee. More roast on the tongue, mildly earthy; very smooth, but actually not very flavorful. Meduim-bodied and moderately drinkable. I think my homebrewed porter was much better. heh

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On tap at PDX.

Black with a thin, tan head that leaves nice lacing, this looks good. The nose is a nice, roasty, coffee like bitter with chocolate, some cream and a moderate hoppiness. The hop character is earthy with a faint citrus note. The palate is dry, roasty, with unsweetened cocoa, grainy bitterness, mildly acrid. The mid palate has a touch of cream and sweetness, but really, this is a dry, dry porter. Grainy bitterness on the finish, there's some coffee and a little vanilla present. Light in body and with a medium high carbonation that enhances the bitterness, this beer is just a hair watery. Solid stuff.

Very dark black with some brown highlights. Small, creamy tan head with decent head retention.

Bitter roast aroma with some earthiness. Good.

Sharp roasty malt with a bit of earthy character. The roast is a little too sharp for my liking.

Medium light body with moderate carbonation. A bit light.

A decent but unexceptional porter. There’s fair flavour but it’s a touch thin for my liking.

Off the tap at PDX. Poured minimal head on a brown colored body.
The aroma is roasted malt with coffee and licorice showing up late.
The taste is smooth with coffee and roasted malt mostly, a touch of burnt wood with a mild bitter finish.
The texture is crisp with soft edges and moderate carbonation.
Super tasty.

From notes. Just $4.25 for a pint at the PDX airport! What a pleasant welcome. Pours black, thick tan head stays a while, leaves lacing. Hint of ruby. SMELL chocolate, roasty, hint of sweetness. TASTE roasted barley, chocolate, and malty sweetness blend and are backed by a modest hop bitterness. Nice. FEEL creamy, light side of medium body, clean finish. Tasty, smooth, not too big. way easy drinking, poundable brew.

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

Appearance- Black with dark red highlights around the edges. Tan head that ends in a ring around the edge of the glass. Almost no lacing.

Smell- Dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. A hint of vanilla is there as well.

Taste- Alcohol is first even though this is only a 5.6% abv beer. Chocolate, and some piney hops in the end. There is an astringent-like taste but it is not unpleasant or off putting at all. It ends quite creamy.

Mouthfeel- Good mouthfeel for a porter. It is true to style.

Overall- Good porter. I have always liked this beer. I don't drink it often enough.

Serving type: growler
