Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Love the name and bottle artwork.

L: Dark mahogany brown pour... nearly black. 2 fingers of tannish head. Great lacing.

S: Roasted sugars and grains. Coffee and cocoa.

T/F: Roasted malts... definite sweetness. Espresso beans and dark chocolate. Some roast bitterness to complement the sweet and prevent it from being cloying. Earthy. Medium in body.... could be an ooch thicker. The finish is sticky with some more roast.

O: A solid American porter.

Great thick pour with a dark color and a decent head and lacing. Good roasted smell akin to any porter. Upfront, the taste is a typical porter taste, a bit more of the roasted malt taste, and a little coffee. I want to rate it higher, but there's something at the back I don't like that I just can't place. All in all, a very good beer.

It pours a deep dark black that leaves the same color body. A massive two inch off-white/tan head apears and takes a good three minutes before settling. There is a lot of lacing seen and the body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. The aroma has a chocolate sort of nuttiness up front. The taste has the same smell backed up with some toffee and coffee. It is very nicely done. The palate is about a medium with some light tickly harshness on my tongue. Overall, this is good for its style and great to me.

This is probably one of the best American porters I have ever had. Pours black with just a hint of red highlights. Medium carbonation and decent lacing. Smells of faint pine and cherries. Tastes of cherries and slight cola nuts. Mouth feel is creamy smooth. Over all a solid and well crafted beer. One of Ohio's best offerings in my opinion. (Of course I may be just a little biased).

Poured dark brown with a red tint and a half finger tan head that dissipated quickly. Heavy to moderate lacing. Aroma of dark fruit was initially strong followed by dark chocolate. Taste of Bing cherry, chocolate malt and cola. Medium body and carbonation. Slight watery feel. Overall, this is a nice porter.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on March 17, 2017.

It pours brown with reasonable opaque clarity and reddish hues. Short lasting tan head.

The aroma is immediate with cherry rather than toasted or roasted malts. Those come up second and they are reserved. Low to no hop profile.

The body is around medium and smooth.

Like the aroma I get a distinct cherry flavor mixed in with the roasted dark malt sweetness. There is a kind of fruity bite of bitterness at the finish.

Served at Double Wide Grill, date night with Dave. Came up for the Deschutes free tastings. This beer had a great coffee aroma and rich caramel taste. Enjoyed with rice balls, garlic parmesan wings and nachos! Woo-hoo!

Pours black with a tan head of fairly limited duration. Smell is of burnt bread and some faint coffee. The taste is nicely balanced with elements of roasted malts, coffee and with a sweet undertone. Smooth mouthfeel in an overall medium body. A very nice porter.

DATE: February 4, 2017... OCCASION: watching Captain America with the fam while basking in the glow of our Quiz Bowl team's strong showing... GLASSWARE: Howard's Pub pint... a jet black body upholds a nearly single-finger brown head... creamy and thick, almost Guinness-like in its consistency... for peat's sake, what a nice aroma for a winter's night... smoky too, with a discernibly soft chocolate scent... a hazy drizzle is left behind as the glass drains... a classic cola finish ends a creamy, smooth body... the flavor profile is peat, slight smoke, and vanilla... almost singular in its effect--kind of like its name!--but excellent in what it does... the chocolate makes this a dessertif, but the overall effect is a delicious, easy sipping porter that provokes a second....
