2.98/5 rDev -22.4%
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

Served in nonic. Poured a nearly solid black color, very stoutish, with well over an inch of brown head that had moderate retention and lacing.
The aroma had some slightly sweet malts, but was dominated by a very notable roasted scent, just shy of coffeeish. The flavors were nearly identical, light malts and mostly roast.
The body was smooth and even, reasonably full, and had a slightly dry finish. Drinkability was good. Overall, a nice, solid, unspectacular brew. I thought it was more of a stout, but it was still enjoyable. Worth a shot if you see it.

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.

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.

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!
