3.35/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

[Suggested Glassware:]

The pour was a dark muddy brown with a slight reddish hue and a large (2-3 finger) light brown fluffy head that receded slowly, down to a nice thick cap which basically lasted throughout and produced some really excellent full sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a dark roasted malt and a bold leathery yeast with notes of molasses, milk chocolate, dark roasted coffee and a hint of ash.

The taste was extremely roasty and a little bitter sweet with a large malt presence and notes of molasses and chocolate pretty much throughout, progressing into a slightly bitterer taste with a strong milky coffee ending. The flavor lasted a good long time following the swallow, with a roasty choc-coffee taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just a bit beyond medium in body and quite creamy in texture with a carbonation that barely exceeded medium in intensity.

Overall this brew started with a delicious aroma and fantastic look, but ultimately tasted pretty average for a chocolate porter. Although I will say it was still a decently chocolaty and rather creamy, which made it and enjoyable and easy drinking beer...

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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.

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.

Poured from 22oz bomber into pint glass.

A - very dark brown, almost black, half inch off-white head, some lacing.

S - heavy chocolate, roasted grains, slight caramel, faint bit of hops

T - weaker than the scent chocolate, caramel, more hops than I was expecting.

M - Medium bodied, appropriate carb, slight but of chewiness is nice.

Overall - A solid porter. good value and will be buying again.

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.

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.

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.
