A super dark brown in color with a very thin tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate and hazelnuts. Taste begins with some oats, then brown sugar, then coffee, finishing with a tart, slight earthy bitterness. The aftertaste is a bit smokey. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Overall a decent porter.

served on tap at McGinley's Irish Pub in downtown Anchorage.

appears very dark brown, almost black, with a thin off-white colored head. Aroma and taste are fairly typical for the style - toasted malt, with some hints of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Flavors are mild though, easy to drink. Carbonation is at a fine medium level, but the body could be thicker.

Overall, a decent porter that I would recommend.
