22 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.
Pours dark brown but looks near black and opaque in the glass. The small head soon reduces to a durable ring, leaving just a few spots of lacing.

Aroma: a mix of pleasant dark roasted grains and mildly unpleasant but very faint note of something akin to balsamic vinegar.

Flavor: better than the aroma. Very good and near equal bitter-sweet balance but lacks complexity.

Feel: Medium-light carbonation; medium-light body.

O: improves with warming.

Poured a deep nearly-black shade of brown. A fizzy medium tan head settles down to a thin disc that provide nice small lacing. The aroma is almost non-existent. The flavor has a nice deep roasted malt flavor with a hint of chocolate on the finish. There's a little bit of fizziness on the palate but the body isn't too heavy. All-in-all a good-to-very good porter.

Picked up a bomber from Total Wine a week and a half ago for $3.99.

Beer poured dark brown with a nice tan head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose has hints of roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate.

Taste is roasted coffee beans, light chocolate with a decent amount of hops to keep it perfectly balanced.

Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than hoped and not overly smooth.

Overall a very tasty brew.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer pours a very dark, blackish brown coloring with a splash of light, filmy, tan colored surface head. Aromas of bitter coffee, hints of chocolate and toffee, and some earthy notes, all on a roasted backbone. Flavors are heavily roasted forward, with an extremely strong coffee backbone. Bitter and bitter, with bittersweet chocolate highlights throughout. Smooth bodied, slightly dry, with a bitter coffee aftertaste. The finish is dry, with a subtle bitter linger. This is for the coffee drinkers of the world, and that completely fits being from Seattle. Solid flavor profiles and easy to drink.

Had chilled from a bomber, chez White

A: solid black; little head; not much carbonation or lacing
S: stout aroma; dark roast malt dominates
T: powered by dark roast malt; hops are subdued; very flavorful, but really this is more a stout than a porter

It's not a bad beer, but expect just expect more of a stout

22oz, $5, I'm happy even if this is average.
A pretty opaque black pour, thin but well retaining layer of light tan head.

Aroma, fair amount of roast malt. Smaller dark chocolate and coffee. These increase as it warms. Some faint herbally like hop notes.

Taste, A nice chocolatey peaty mix. Some nutty coffee.
Dry roast, light anise and herbal hop bitter in the finish.

Maybe the taddest bit thin, but the carbonation gives this a nice creaminess and it coats well enough. Drinks very easy. An excellent brew, especially for the price. This and their stout are both very good and affordable.
