look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A- A beautiful dark, rosy brown that looks earthy. Head is nice light brown that leaves smooth, flowing lines on the glass.

S- Chocolatey, malty, roasty tones abound.

T- Roasted chocolate followed by a malt bitterness. Low hop presence but a balanced, easy drinking flavor.

M- Very light end of porter. Strong carbonation but flows down smoothly.

O- I'll admit, I've loved this beer for 12+ years. If I could only ever have 1 beer this would be it. Why? It isn't the "perfect" beer imho, I've had others that I feel are superior to the style and others that "knock my socks" more, but the perfect balance, smooth drinkability of this brew just makes be love it so. Not to mention that Bend, OR rocks!!!
