Black with a tan head, good retention, phenominal lace. Light aroma of molasses, nuts, biscuit and a hint of licorice. These flavours are a little more pronounced, with a good bitterness. Moderate body is silky smooth, with a modest carbonation on draft. A very solid brew.

The first thing I liked about the porter was the very dark appearance right after the pour. The head was very slight, with almost none at all. The smell was somewhat chocolate, and sweet. The first sip was very smooth, and taste somewhat suttle. A very good beer with an ease of drinkability sip after sip.

A very dark almost black in appearance with a thin head and a smell and taste of dark malts, dark fruits with a light smokiness having a medium mouthfeel. To tell you the truth I think it would make for a great smoked porter rather than just a porter, a little to smokey for my taste in this style.

The apparent lineage to brown ales is suggested in this brown porter emphasizing malt sweetness. The aroma is initially of potent molasses influence though of modest duration. The head also departs quickly, and the body is opaque burgundy-brown and void of carbonation.

A tasty beer though lacking in vigor. Not to be confused with the robust, roasted porter style.

Had this at the Twisp brewpub and this was one their best beers. Dark , well headed and most definetly fullbodied. The chocolate notes really carried through into a fine finish. Very tasty and well crafted. The brewer also makes a great stout so order anything dark.

Had this on-tap at McGlinn's in Wenatchee on Memorial Day weekend for $3.50.

Was a very dark brown, with a big, mocha colored head. Lots of lace.

Smell was of dark, Colombian roast cofee and rich, dark chocolate. Smelled good!

Taste was very similar to the smell. The roasty coffeeish aspect was up-front. It was quickly followed by, but never overwhelmed by, the chocolaty flavors. Not as complex tasting as some porters I've had, but everything a porter needs to be tasty was on hand.

Moderately full-bodied porter. This wasn't particularly viscous or syrupy, but there was no mistaking it was a porter in the mouthfeel department. It had just the right level of carbonation.

This was a very tasty porter, and functioned as an excellent dessert for my Philly Dip sandwich dinner.
