This is a welcoming, rich, and tasty glass of beer. Because of the deep and complex layers of roasted barley flavor, it definitely deserves a slow and thoughtful drinking. i wish I had a fire place right now. I'm fighting strenuously against the urge to just gulp it down. Thick head and heavy lacing seem to tease me, lasting longer than I can.

The colour is deep brown, almost black (90 EBC), the three finger head is brown and compact. It sinks slowly leaving some lacing on the glass.
The smell is malty with chocolate, marzipan and a hint of grass. Some alcohol in the background and a touch of bitterness.
The taste is smooth with just some sweetness in the background. Chocolate, hints of wood and malt sourness. Light to medium body. The aftertaste is as smooth with dark chocolate, hints of dried fruits and a mellow sourness.
The carbonation is fresh, the mid-sized bubbles short-lived. The liquid is smooth.
A solid American porter that isn’t that American.

This is a good Porter but not great. The mouthfeel is not what I would expect in a Porter that smells this good. Have only rated a few Porters but after three Seattle Brewery tours I have tasted some good ones and had a guide to help understand the brew. I plan on seeking out some more Porters so I can be better at understanding by taste. Definitely would recommend for others to give it a try.

Jet black with a rocky long lasting khaki head. Soft nose of espresso, baking chocolate, fruity, citrusy hops. Taste follows nose with a sweet, iced coffee flavor followed by milk chocolate, raisins, figs, ending with a citrus hop bitterness. Soft carbonation with a creamy almost nitro mouthfeel. A coffee lovers beer, totally delicious. No wonder this is Joe Rogans favorite beer.
