A - pours a deep midnight black with hints of chocolate brown. Thick dark tan foam. Eventually fizzles out leaving lots of spotty lacing.
S - aroma is dense, decadent, and just cries out 'desert'. Smells like a coffee with creamer. Sugary lactose is strong. Malty notes create a milk chocolate character. Roast notes seem to come from the added coffee. Malt seems more silky and sweet.
T - sweet flavors on the tip of the tongue. Silky milk chocolate. Sweet cream. Roasty coffee beans come through in the center for balance. The deep coffee flavors entwine with the malty flavors. Backend is more sweet with a faint herbal hop character.
M - silky. Creamy. Medium bodied close to full. High tight scrubbing bubbles of carbonation from the bottle conditioning.
O - nice beer. Definitely in the desert beer category. Bit too sweet for me, might have been better for me in a smaller format or paired with food.

Graciously provided by our host (Branden) at the recent PDX bottle share at growler guys.
The beer pours a very dark brown color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose, this beer is pretty attractrive, showcasing considerable dark chocolate, light vanilla, some roasty malt and, of course, coffee. The flavor profile replicated the nose pretty closely in this moderately sweet porter, with the coffee ground flavor really front and center. There was almost some grittiness in the mouthfeel, giving one more of that coffee ground impression. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth otherwise, and the finish was very long. Alcohol was barely noticeable, and I was surprised to learn that it was up around 9%.
My first experience with this brewery, but so far what I've had, I've liked.
