I have never been a fan of porter style beers. They typically remind me of the beers you'd have a the pub after work in England... no frills just something to get a buzz from. This one is exceptional It has a very good smooth flavor to it. It didn't have the typical aftertaste that darks usually have. If you like Porters you'll love this one.

Serving type: on-tap

This is a phenomenal baltic porter/imperial stout -type beer, rich, balanced, characterful and in my opinion is definitely Russian River's best foray into the stout/porter world.

Very dark brown, essentially black, it has a medium-small tan head steadily shrinking to lasting rich foamy ring, lots of wisps, nice lace.

Aroma is dried figs, prunes, charcoal.

Taste is more complex, luscious dried frigs, dark toast, hints of dark rum, prunes, molasses, charcoal, with more dark toastiness in the finish. It is just slightly on the sweet side, with silky rummy-dried fig sweetness balanced with spicy-roasty-peppery bitterness that just barely lets the sweetness dominate, as I think is right in this type of beer. Feel is silky, full yet lively, luscious yet not oily.

This is one that they should have all the time here, both because of the the beer itself and for the name - Shadow of a Doubt being the classic Hitchcock film (his own stated favourite) set and filmed in Santa Rosa in 1943.
