22oz bomber from Boise's newest bottling brewery, poured into a CBS snifter.

A: Dark and nearly opaque, really don't get a ton of light through this one but there is ruby red highlights...minimal head from an aggressive pour, though carbonation seems good.

S: Malt, subtle roastiness, nutty earthy notes, light fruit notes from a yeast ester I'm guessing, hints of chocolate and hops.

T: A bit more roasty here, definite coffee presence...creamy malty notes, chocolate, molasses, lightly roasted nuts, fruity notes again.

MF: Creamy body, medium feel, pretty drinkable, with a dry finish.

O: A really decent porter, above average for sure, and pretty drinkable. Crooked Fence is starting out on the right foot it would seem.

Had this at alefort on tap. same notes:

Smell is good. Not overly strong but there is some coffee coming through on a low level. Look dark as in black. A little head that ends up ringing the tumbler glass I am drinking out of. I expected more head. Ok considerable more head wanted. Taste is light on the coffee with earth tones showing throug on the nose. . Maybe a little coriander on the tail end Feel. Co2 yeah. Alot of it. This effected the taste and lead to a stomach ache after five drinks. The feel is killing this beer for me. Overall. Not in my top 10 porters but will stay on my drink list since it is a decent porter and local

Bottle picked up today at the COOP ... Don't remember the price, but it wasn't too expensive for a 22. Poured into my small CC goblet.

Short lasting dark tan head leaves little in the way of a cap, but somehow decent lacing shows for the entire glass. The brew isn't exactly black... instead a deeeep dark brown that only shows its clarity when held to a light.

Nose is pretty good.... a nice mix of chocolate and light toasty maltiness... whaffs of smoke show when swirled and I am concentrating. Hops are there as a backbone, but I can't really discern much more than their light presence.

Good flavor packed into a smaller ABV porter... more cocoa and black malt than the nose led me to believe... there seems to be a touch of dry dark caramel essence... pretty clean... again the hops are more of a bitter balance... not getting much in the way of real hop flavor.

Mouthfeel is bigger than a normal 5.5 ... like some oats or maybe a bit of rye was thrown into the mix. Carbonation is light but certainly within style guidelines.

I am surprised... I normally don't care for standard porters... but I liked this one quite a bit... sessionable even.
