Pours beautiful dark brown into my snifter. Aroma foretells the chocolate. Nice and pleasant.
Taste is malt and chocolate. Trying to place the smooth feel that seemed so familiar and it hit me that it tastes and feels a lot like Guinness Draft but better.
Very smooth aftertaste with absolutely no cloy or bitterness.

Appearance - poured with a finger-and-a-half of light mocha colored head, color is a deep coffee brown, very sticky lacing and rings mark the beer's progress down the glass
Smell - coffee comes through strongly with some light chocolate, small touch of hops as well
Taste - coffee and chocolate are coming through prominently, some hop bitterness upfront and coffee-like bitterness on the back end
Mouthfeel - creamy and smooth, full-bodied, coats the inside of the mouth
Drinkability - neither too heavy nor too light, a very drinkable porter
Another "darn tasty beer" from Georgetown Brewing.

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.

For an American style porter, I can't think of anything better.
It pours somewhere between a burnt brown and dark black and is thick. It smells almost like chocolate mousse soaked in brandy smothered in baked malt.
Tastes smooth with a wonderful balance of sweetness and bitterness with strong chocolate malt flavors. Taste changes considerably as it warms.
Extremely drinkable but with noticeable complex flavors and a good amount of alcohol. Great beer.

I am a huge fan of Georgetown Brewery and have never disliked one of their beers. I typically don't drink Porters but certainly don't pass up on an opportunity to try one. As usual-
A -This brewski pours a very dark, almost black color, not cloudy at all with a nice 1-2 inch head that lingered nicely. Moderate lacing.
S- Extremely deep roasted, nutty, chocolate malt. Smells very good.
T- Great beer and just how it smells. You can taste the blatant rich chocolate, nutty flavor with a nice subtle hop finish.
M- Light to medium body...more on the lighter side with a very smooth finish
D- This is a great beer. Great flavor and offers enough complexity to certainly give it a try. It's a light porter so I could absolutely foresee sitting down for a session with Georgetown's 9 Pound Porter.

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.
