Good dark color with subtle coffee aromatics. And a burndt oak tinted smell. Smooth taste but mouth feel fall's short of a great American porter. Thick rich taste makes up for mouth feel. Drank from snifter on first experience but actually enjoyed more from bottle. In my opinion it did not hold up well from warming process and would suggest drinking this between 34 and 49 degrees. All in all a good porter from the Oregon boys at the Deschutes Brewery.

Black in color with a small, but firm, tan head. The smell is of highly roasted malt...not quite smokey, but almost burnt. A touch of malt. Coffee flavor, mixed with bread crust. Dry, moderately bitter. Lingering finish. Excellent.

Pretty sure I got a pour from a bad system / dirty line. Tasted oddly sour.
