3.03/5 rDev -14.6%
Dark brown with dark amber highlights. Good amount of head that goes quick to lacing. Appropriate for a porter. Nice chocolate in the nose, but something off here as well. Tast follows with dark roast malt (chocolate), but somewhat astringent. Mouthfeel suffers from the astringency as well. Better than some things trying to pass for porters, but on the whole average.

2.9/5 rDev -18.3%
A- More brown than black, mostly a dark brown coffee hue. Light tan cap, a bit creamy, virtually no lacing or head retention.
S- Light aromas of milk chocolate, mild dark bread, and barley. Slight roasty notes and dark breads.
T- Initial tastes of faint smoke, followed by a smooth, creamy chocolate flavor mid-palate. I felt the taste was a bit darker and didn't quite match the nose or appearance. Finishes with a slim coffee roast, subtle dark malts, and more chocolate.
MF- A bit thin with some creamy texture. Low carbonation and a dry astringent character left over on the palate. A bit like black coffee.
A fairly subtle and straightforward brew. Nothing overwhelmingly dominant in the flavor profile, which promotes easy drinkability. Simple. Could improve with some coffee or maybe oak aged?

22 oz bottle from Fred Meyers, Wilsonville. $4.29 Dark mahogany brown body with a very attractive light tan head..that is thick and creamy. Good and rich dark chocolaty aromas..along with roasted hazelnut and cream. Taste is much the same as the aroma but more dark french roast coffee aspects..the chocolate remains strong though. The mouthfeel however lets the beer down starts great and luscious than quickly fades to an almost watery finish. Good beer however.

A: Dark brown. Slight haze. Low cream head. Medium carbonation.
S: Wet rot from pine with strong wet vanilla. Slightly sweet.
T: Sweet and vanilla up front with some chocolaty notes. Mild char bittering follows like cold coffee. Finishes slightly funky of wet wood or decomposing dried leaves. Not a great finish, but still a lot of good parts here.
M: Finishes slightly dry and fairly clean. A bit thick and viscous.
O: Okay. I felt it was a tad over roasted at times. Too much of a sweetness background lends to a muddled flavor at the back of the tongue. Not bad, but not a repeat.

On tap at E-San Thai in Portland.
A very dark brown with a dense and creamy brown head with excellent retention and nice lacing. The nose opens roasty and creamy with caramel, brown sugar, coffee grounds, a moderate acidity and chocolate. Nice. The palate opens sweet, roasty and with coffee , cocoa and caramel. Medium in body and with a long, creamy finish, this beer has lingering flavors of cocoa, coffee grounds and a touch of raisin. Solid.

bottle courtesy of Rathakem from probably about a year ago. enjoyed from a beer hunter taster tulip.
a - brew was super carbed...when i opened it, the gas nearly rushed from the bottle making a huge fizzle sound and a pop. no liquid geysered, but the pour yielded more than half the glass of foamy head. once things got under control, there was a nice watery black under a nice greyish foamy head. as i sipped the brew, streaky chunks of lacing clung to the glass.
s - nose is definitively porter with a good char. decent chocolate notes over black malt.
t - the chocolate is not overwhelming, but certainly leads in the flavor...but blends nicely with the roast and char.
m - the feel is fairly full for a porter while still keeping the char. kind of toes the line of a stout.
o - overall, forgot about this bottle and am glad i opened it tonight since it is fully hitting the spot. this was a pleasant surprise and quite enjoyable and easy drinking.

on tap at the brewery
Nice coffee brown, opaque with only a rim of tan foam. Smells of roasted and toasted malts, chocolate a bit of coffee and some sweet prunes. Flavor is robust with toasted malts, some cocoa, some sweetness, and a touch of soil. A little thin for the style with low carb and a nice only slightly dry finish. Nice beer.
