Had this on tap in August 2009 at Bill's Tavern in Cannon Beach, Oregon. The colour was medium brown with just a thin ribbon of head around the edges of the glass. The aroma was faintly hoppy and malty. On the palate, there was a generous roasty character with some anise and tanginess and then an odd shot of charcoal and BBQ sauce. Some hops came along on the finish. Certainly not my fave from Bill's.

Stopped by the brew pub while out to see haystack rock. This beer was a very very dark brown, border line black, but not quite, with a thin soapy white head.
Sweet creamy chocolaty nose with hints of smoke, charcoal, and cocoa.
Light sweet malty flavor up front with hints of smoke and vanilla extract. Light hop bite in the tail end of each sip.
A great easy to drink tasty porter.
Mouthfeel was sort of watery, but still a great tasting porter.

I thought at first they must have served me the stout; this brew is entirely too black for a porter. Later it occurred to me that a beer brewed with smoked malts and organic licorice root should be as dark as a Ragsdale Porter.
But the greater surprise is the taste. Ragsdale tastes like nothing Ive ever had. The smoked element is present. But the licorice root is transforms into something entirely distinct. This is literally a root beer, and that could be it. The aroma is a fanciful vanilla-incense. The taste is peculiar, delightful, and complex.
Ive noticed that many of Bills beers have very short-lived heads, and Im beginning to wonder if the house dishwashing technique isnt competing for the suds. My Ragsdale Porter came with a thin head that faded quickly. Still, this beer is a must-try for anyone visiting Cannon Beach. It is extraordinarily good.
