Look: Nice and dark like a porter should be, frothy beige head dissipates rather quickly (unsurprising given the 9.4% ABV. Scattered lacing here and there. Looks nice.

Smell: Not much to speak of here. I pick up on a combination of bread and what might be coffee or dark chocolate. Very subtle aroma.

Taste: Sweeter than I had anticipated, but not cloyingly so. The taste of coffee is the most apparent thing, however. I don't pick up much other than this. Lacking in complexity, but at least it's not boozy.

Mouthfeel: Just average. This is a rather weak-bodied porter, but has been carbonated more than usual for the style, I suppose in an attempt to make up for that. Prickly from the carbonation, and light, almost watery otherwise. The mouthfeel disappoints.

Overall: Decent. It's good for the price, as many users have noted, but it's a far cry from being a great brew. It almost feels like coffee liqueur has been added to a watery porter. The sweetness detracts, and I am not enough of a coffee drinker to appreciate the only other apparent flavor. I wouldn't mind drinking it again some time if I wasn't so close to Deschutes, who produce one of the best porters there is.

Overall, a good brew. Nice nose, texture on the tongue. Smooth drinking, rich, smooth.
If you find it at the right distributor, a great bang for the buck.

A little light bodied (in my opinion) for a Porter, but tasty.. well balanced and easy to drink. I normally like them a bit more on the malty side, but the high alcohol content gave it a nice punch

At 1.99 per... this just became my winter session beer. It sounds like a 70's blacksploitation film, goes down just as hard and satisfies the same way too.
