Appearance: Pours with half a finger of light brown head which settled in to the edges of the glass. Active carbonation is bright, continually regenerating the head. Poured dark brown and sits black in the glass.

Smell: The yeast they used for the banana profile is surprisingly potent on the nose. Underneath that is airy milk chocolate and some heavier roasted malt tones. There is some prevalent bitter chocolate and earthy notes which I believe is coming from the yeast and chocolate additions on the finish.

Taste: Hmm, the yeast comes on way to hard on the front. Flavors of stale bread and wild, unrefined vegetables are off putting right away. Then the chocolate flavors hit which are too bitter and artificial. Heavy roasted malts linger on the back end.

Mouthfeel: Weird yeast flavors and overly bitter chocolate isn't pleasant lingering on the palate.

Overall: Did not expect this after the aroma. This beer smells tasty but the flavor is a complete miss. I appreciate their efforts to not use a bunch of artificial flavorings like the similar Rogue beers, but the yeast is overdone and chocolate just doesn't fit. Very disappointed.

Almost spicy and smokey. Very full bodied for a porter. Expected a little more banana or esther taste. I drank it a little cool so maybe that's why - but hey, it's warm out and I wanted to try it. Seems like this might improve in the bottle. Buy it, it's definitely worth it.
