Filled a growler and poured into pint glass. Decent head, light tan in color. A very dark brown in color. Not much going on in terms of aroma. Mild sweetness and a bit nutty. Very good lace trails the sips. Well balanced porter, lower body. Mouthfeel was average with a lingering bitterness. I don't think this will be a go-to beer for me but it will work for most beer geeks but probably not for the true porter connoisseur.

The first beer to come from this new brewery in Redmond. It's an interesting mix of a brown and a porter. Surprisingly complex upon initial taste, it's a great beer.

I know - how very NOT helpful. I'll try to edit this review when I have more time.

It's my favorite beer at Black Raven hands down.

On tap at Black Raven. L: Dark brown, almost opaque. Thin tan head, nice lacing. S: a little brown sugar or toffee, not much. T: A little nutty, coffee and dark chocolate. Plenty of bitterness. F: a little thinner than the average porter but in this case isn't necessarily bad. In fact, if it had more body, it might throw off the balance. O: good porter, super easy drinking. I could drink this all day and still be ready for more.
