look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Serving type- On tap poured into a snifter glass

Appearance- Dark milk chocolate color, think consistency, not much of a head

Smell- AMAZING Big chocolate notes, bourbon coming in big time nice roasted notes one of the most intense chocolate smelling beers I have ever had

Taste- AMAZING again big chocolate in the front of the tongue, smooth melted chocolate almost like you melted a high quality chocolate bar and but in directly in the beer just awesome

Mouth feel- Smooth classic porter mouth feel, softness from the chocolate notes, a bit to bite but in a good way from the bourbon aging done on this beer

Overall- One of the best beers I have ever had this was AMAZING on tap and I can only imagine getting a few bottles of this and aging them for a few years and how good they would turn out just outstanding....A + Beer for sure

22oz bottle. 2015 batch.

A: Dark brown. Poured 3 fingers high of head, moderate retention.
S: Intense hazelnut chocolate. Toasted nuts. Slightly vanilla. Slightly woody. Hints of grass.
T: Intense chocolate. Vanilla. Moderate sweetness. Medium bitterness. Finish is bittering like coffee, with some herbal/grassy flavors.
M: Full bodied. Moderate carbonation.
O: What can I say!? This porter is fucking good. The aroma is so intense and feeling natural. The flavor is so strong, delicious, complex, and balanced. The most thing for me is, it is not way too sweet, so quite drinkable.

Bottle shared with friends at a weekend tasting. Thick dark brown pour. Aroma dominated by milk chocolate, with notes of vanilla, oak, bourbon. The taste follows the same notes, very heavy on the chocolate. Excellent beer.

22 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a half of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic! Lots of chocolate, roasted malt, brown sugar, molasses and vanilla. Very pleasant aromas.

Taste: Wow! Very tasty! Tons of roasted malt and chocolate up front, followed by some vanilla, caramel and brown sugar-like sweetness and black pepper. Not much in the way of hops, which is surprising for a beer from the Pacific Northwest.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, creamy, smooth. No carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 8.5%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a very, very, good porter! Great flavors of malt and chocolate, all wrapped up into an extremely creamy quaff. Highly recommended.
