Currently on tap at Toronado in SF. Glad I stumbled on to this one. Perhaps one of the most well-made "regular" porters I've had.

A: Basically black, with a big thick frothy white head.

S: Classic porter aromas of chocolate and coffee.

T/M: Rich and robust coffee and chocolate flavors. Has the perfect amount of carbonation so it never becomes too intense on the palate. Good creamy mouthfeel.

D: The definition of drinkable for a porter.

This is just classic. I didn't know Russian River made this but I'm now glad to know they do.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the RR Brewpub.

A: dak brown, nearly opaque but clear. Somewhat weak head still leaves very good lacing.

Aroma: as expected for style: a role model.

Flavor: refined dark roastd malts; fine London style porter

FeeL; smooth; mdium body; medium-low carbonation.

O: unremarkable excepting the high quality.
