A: Pours a deep brown color with a one finger light brown head. Nice streaks of lace down the glass with each sip.

S: Very soft aroma of toasted malt, light roasted coffee and a little bit of oatmeal. Inviting, but not overwhelming.

T: Roasted malt with a hint of smoke, bittersweet chocolate and a bit of espresso. Maybe just a hint of tobacco hidden in there as well. Finish has some fudge and lingering dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium with just a prickle of carbonation. Not mindblowing, but a really solid porter.

Consumed May 21st, 2014. Poured into a tulip.

Beer is a deep, deep mahogany brown. Two finger tan head provides lacing and sticks around for quite a while.

Aroma is charcoal and unsweetened chocolate.

Flavor is slightly ashy with rich milk chocolate notes. A touch of oatmeal, maybe? Bitter and a little boozy on the finish. Nothing too special here.

Mouthfeel is velvety thick and smooth, almost like a milkshake. By far the best thing about this beer. Also some alcohol heat.

I still don't get the love for Russian River, but this beer is certainly not an embarrassment.
