Had on tap at Harmon in Tacoma. My first beer in Washington state. Definitely better than your average porter. Enjoyed the smoothness of it, and the stronger than typical chocolate notes in it. I would likely drink this regularly if I lived in the Tacoma area.

Pours a finger and half of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is mostly roasted malt and burnt wood, really nice.
The flavor is balanced and deep, roasted malt, burnt malt, charred wood, and mild bitter finish.
The texture is smooth with low to moderate carbonation.
An outstanding porter.

T-creamy chocolate milk tasting porter , very little bitterness

MF-ok/good carbonation , feels stronger than a medium body

Dark red brown in the pint shaker. A decent foam with nicely spritzy mouthfeel. Warm and malty with a surprisingly robust sweet character. The roasted malt is joined by a winey taste. Brewed with a big variety of malts and rated at 40 IBUs.

The hops come on the scene but don't take over. A charred grainy flavor at the end. The malty nose is quite pleasant. A scratchy tang in the aftertaste along with the hoppy bitterness. Quite drinkable but nothing of great interest. On tap at the brewpub in downtown Tacoma.
