Had on-tap at Deschutes in Portland, OR. Poured a deep dark brown, nearly black color with a tan creamy head that retained well and left nice off-white sticky lacing. Very roasty in both aroma and taste, with a nice smoke element as well as some sweet molasses that makes this roasty brew a little more smooth.

On the heavier side of medium-bodied with minimal carbonation. A bit of a dry finish, but still quite drinkable. Recommended.

Pours a deep brown color. Produced a tan, thick, 2 finger head.
The smell was of roasted malts, light coffee, and dark chocolate.
The taste was the same. Not overly leaning chocolate, or the others. Just a well balacened porter. Very light hop presence noticable. Medium mouth-feel, and low carbonated.
I love this beer. My fave porter to date.
