Had at Icicle Brewing Co. in Leavenworth, WA. Nice dark chocolate brown with a creamy tan head. Smell of dark chocolate and espresso. Smooth body leads to roasted coffee and dark chocolate flavors. Ends with a subtle sourness at finish. Hard to explain. Not sure if it was intended or not. Pretty average bitterness. This is a solid porter though not a game changer.

On tap at the brewery. Poured to a standard pint glass (notes from 8/14/11):

A - Poured transparent dark brown/black. Barely any head, but what was there was composed of small bubbles. Tiny specks of lacing left on the glass. Shines middle-of-the-road brown when held up to the light.

S - Non-burnt but toasty dark malt, easing into a hint of molasses, shot completely through by medium-roast coffee and a hint of orange citrus at the end.

T - Coffee and molasses to start, with a hint of dark chocolate, then a tiny flash of vinegary sour, followed by a mild smokiness, and finishing with a mild earthy bitterness, light toastiness, and sweet molasses.

M - Medium body, not as heavy as one would expect, slightly creamy, with tingly moderate carbonation at the front of the tongue, and a slightly dry finish.

D - Very good toasty mild coffee porter. very drinkable, with an inoffensive bitterness. A mild intensity of flavors, but complex nonetheless. I didn;t pick as much chocolate in the flavor as advertised in the brewery's literature, but I enjoyed the pervasive moderate toastiness.

I went to Icicle excited about trying the Kolsch, Lager and Wheat. I came away feeling like this Porter is their best offering. Still it's not mind-blowingly fancy; just a very solid middle-of-the-road porter.
