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.

Poured from a 650ml bottle. Pours a real dark inky brown-black. Great colour. This is a rich, intense, but very drinkable brew from start to finish. The nose is lush with dark fruits and some roasty smokiness. On the palate, there's more of that smoke combined with dry bitter chocolate notes. The combination offers a nice savoury mouthful that'd be excellent with raw oysters. An excellent porter.

Pike is to me one of the more underrated breweries in the U.S.,they have been around a longtime and I think make very solid beer.This porter pours a deep chocolate brown with some ruby tint when held to the light a half finger beige colored head atop.Aromas of caramel with some fruity esters,mild earthy tones as well.A nice creamy slick feel,medium bodied just right.Flavors of chocolate,caramel, and brown sugar with a good shot of earthy dryness in the finish.A well rounded palate and creamy feel makes this yet another winner from Pike for me.

22oz Bomber poured into a snifter...

Dark cola brown with one finger off white head very nice smell/taste... I will say it again mouthfeel is everything in these Porters/Stouts and this one is near perfect at 6%... I remember liking the XXX Stout very much as well and this one does not dissapoint either....

Exceptionally good example of the style. Had this during an Oyster pairing yesterday event for Seattle Beer Week erday and it went perfectly! Not overly roasty, where a number of porters tend to fall by the wayside, this one drinks smooth and deep. I can almost compare it to drinking a draft Black Butte from Deschuttes, but this one actually is richer tasting with less harsh carbonation. Really great stuff from Pike, I highly recommend you pick one up!

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.
