12oz. Bottle poured into chilled fluted mug.
A: Coffee brown, very dark. The appearance is absolutely exceptional for the style. Very frothy tan head that dissapates to about one finger. Lacing is retained and as it should be. Great appearance.
S: Smells of chocolate, coffee, and a hint of nuttiness. Smell is good. I wish it was a bit more aromatic, but hey its still good.
M: Medium carbonation, kinda crisp. I wish it had a bit more body to it myself.
T: Coffee, chocolate, and a slight nutty background. Definately taste as a port should. Taste as it should.
O: I think the style is greatly represented here, but like all beers there is always room from improvement. This is one of the better porters I have had. I am not necessarily a huge fan of the style but I think theyt did a good job with this one. My regret is that I tryed this in September and not January. I like the style better in the winter myself. First one from Deschutes and won't be my last.

A - Pours cola like in appearance. Nice 1 1/2 finger tan head. Excellent retention and lacing
S - Light aroma. Sweet malts, lots of chocolate and even a slight bourbon on the finish if you use your imagination.
T - Not as sweet as the nose. Has a bitter finish with a hint of smoke. More coffee beans flavor present than chocolate but both are there. Smoke tends to linger on the finish
M - A medium body beer. Fizzy in the mouth and fairly smooth to drink. Just the tiniest hint of burn when the smoke flavor lingers
O - A solid porter. Nice flavor and I particularly enjoyed the smoky finish. Not a sessionable beer, but would be very enjoyable on a cool fall day or with some spicy bbq
