Had on tap at Reuben's. Review from notes.

A: Pours a deep brown color with an off-white head on top. Decent head retention with minimal lacing.

S: Nice mixture of coffee and chocolate with some hearty burnt malt and a bit of caramel.

T: More of a cocoa flavor than chocolate with more roasted/burnt malt. Thick caramel and a bit of pine on the finish.

M: Medium bodied, maybe a touch thin for a porter, but smooth.

O: A solid porter, nice flavor profile, deep roasted malt, borderline burnt. (500 characters)

Dark tan head. Fades quickly. Pure black, dark as night. The way a porter should look! Lovely roasty aroma. Tastes of roasted sugars, faint hints of chocolate, pipe tobacco-like bitter finish. Hops well balanced. Goes in way too smooth; very enjoyable mouthfeel. Maybe a little too thin but certainly not watery.

Overall a great porter. But not quite as memorable as other Reuebens beers. Still very worthy of your dough and palate. (434 characters)

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing opaque black in the glass, with a thin light brown head that dissipates to a thin ring around the glass with light lacing. Mild aroma of sweet toasted malt, milk chocolate; lightly lactic. Flavor of toasted, lightly charred malt, cocoa, light coffee, flavor drops off to a drier, mild charred malt flavor with some light grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied. A rather dry, charred malt porter instead of the sweeter mild stout of the aroma. The malt body is not quite as substantial as I would hope for the strong char component. I enjoyed this and liked the roastiness, but would have liked a bit more balance. (683 characters)

I ama anew at drinking Porter's this is my third one so take this with a bit of salt but I was not at all impressed here. The finish disappeared immediately. The smell started out right but it never even started after that. better than a Miller Light but that is about I can say about this one....I will try and educate myself and try some more Porters but it was not as good as the other two I had in Seattle recently. (419 characters)
