this brew combines two of my favorite worlds, Porter/Stouts and IPAs. I really appreciate that Deschutes experimented with these two because I honestly wouldn't have thought about pouring the two together... At first it may seem disgusting or accidental... which I still wonder, but since these two styles are my favorite I am able to appreciate
a: poured like a stout, mostly black with a brownish tan super fluffy head.
s: mostly hops which was surprising because of the sight...
t: mostly hoppy IPA style but other sips give more chocolate like porter... this IS mysterious.
m: a strange combo of hops and deep malts that leaves me confused and with a thick film wishing for WATER.
Serving type: bottle

A: Black with a creamy lightish brown head.
S: Lots of floral and citric hops in the nose, and maybe just a touch of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate.
T: Tons of pine and floral hops, yet not overly bitter, some citrus, some coffee and roasted malt. Hop heavy.
M: Smooth and full bodied, a bit creamy.
O: A great example of the style, and one of my favorites from Deschutes.
