Beer added by: HuskyinPDX on 04-26-2013

A standard porter grist with chocolate wheat malt added for roast and body. Cascade hops are added for fruity hop flavor and aroma. Finally, it is fermented with one of our house Belgian Ale strains for a complimentary ester profile.

S - Not much to pick up. A touch of Belgian yeast and slight hops.

T - Smooth chocolate and subtle coffee and a touch of hop bitterness.

D - Medium body with good carbonation.

O - Chocolate and a touch of Belgian and hops.

Pint from a growler filled at "b2 Taphouse" in Salem. I think $13. Beer is a darker brown colour with a large thick and frothy tan head..that sticks around! Nice aromas of nuts,Belgian style yeasts,cherries and toasted malt. Again nice fruity yeasty Belgian accents in the taste..touch of nuts and some sweet black cherry..semi bitter coffee malts in the end Good mouth feel substantial but not thick and cloying. Overall likable beer here a good hybrid.

on-tap @ Belmont Station.
from notes.

Deep brown, with amber edges when held to light. Foamy, dense light brown head.

Roasty, nutty, light cocoa. Delicate, but still flavorful.

Medium body, foamy, unobtrusive carbonation.

A very well done porter. Lower end ABV with still a lot of flavor. Something I could easily enjoy a couple pints of.
