Had this on tap in a pint glass at the eponymous 9lb Hammer in Seattle, Georgetown Brewery's de facto brewpub.
Appearance: black with a thin white head with attractive lacing.
Smell: served a bit too cold initially to get the full aroma, as the pint warmed up I got some good roasted coffee and chocolate aromas.
Taste: subtle but evident hops; nice chocolate and coffee flavors. The finish is dry with a big coffee character. A nicely bitter brew as well.
Mouthfeel: medium body and slightly creamy; I like this aspect a lot.
Drinkability: this beer is great stuff I could drink all night.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a shaker pint glass. Pours a very dark brown, appearing nearly black in the glass with a one finger off-white head with good retention and light lacing. Nice aroma of toasted malt with light chocolate and coffee. Hints of dark dried fruit and char. Medium bodied. This was somewhat underwhelming cold out the keg, but as it warmed, the flavors were robust and well balanced. Complexity of flavor is not obvious right away because of the good integration and balance. I will be happy to encounter this again. Georgetown is fairly widely distributed on tap in Seattle, and is underrated considering their quality. This was on-tap next to Lucille and I really wanted to drink Lucille again; I ended up drinking this a second time before having a taster of Lucille. Nice.

Had this on tap at Pomegranate in Redmond.
This porter has a distinct similarity to every other porter out there. It is not a special beer by a long shot, and does not have a great deal going for it to make it unique from several of the other porters being produced in the pacific northwest.
Although porters aren't my favorite style, this one has to be the bottom of the heap.
