From the taps of the Pike Brewery in Seattle. This porter is a bit disappointing very little character and flavor, which all appears to be masked by the nitro tap. It pours a deep black with a creamy thick head. The aroma is bland and very limited, maybe a bit of the roasted malt breaks through, but not much. The taste is also wiped clean. As it warms a bit, the slight malt flavor peaks out, but not the chocolate notes I would expect. Overall, I would stick to some of the other Pike beers.
Serving type: nitro-tap

Dark, slightly transparent beer, with tan head that left lacing along the glass rim. Smell was very chocolatey, with a tiny bitterness sneaking through.
Taste is that of a coffee/espresso rather than the chocolate flavors I expected by it's scent. Light apricot tones don't interfere too much, but it isn't spectacular. It's pretty smooth, light chalky texture and thick.
Serving type: on-tap
