3.2/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Very dark black with some brown highlights. Small, creamy tan head with decent head retention.

Bitter roast aroma with some earthiness. Good.

Sharp roasty malt with a bit of earthy character. The roast is a little too sharp for my liking.

Medium light body with moderate carbonation. A bit light.

A decent but unexceptional porter. There’s fair flavour but it’s a touch thin for my liking.

First had: on tap at Laurelwood Public House, Portland, OR

Poured brown-black with a small tan head that retained fairly well and left some soapy lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma, dark malts and a bit of coffee. More roast on the tongue, mildly earthy; very smooth, but actually not very flavorful. Meduim-bodied and moderately drinkable. I think my homebrewed porter was much better. heh

On tap at PDX.

Black with a thin, tan head that leaves nice lacing, this looks good. The nose is a nice, roasty, coffee like bitter with chocolate, some cream and a moderate hoppiness. The hop character is earthy with a faint citrus note. The palate is dry, roasty, with unsweetened cocoa, grainy bitterness, mildly acrid. The mid palate has a touch of cream and sweetness, but really, this is a dry, dry porter. Grainy bitterness on the finish, there's some coffee and a little vanilla present. Light in body and with a medium high carbonation that enhances the bitterness, this beer is just a hair watery. Solid stuff.

Very dark but thin appearance with slight tan head and little carbination. Aroma is malt with some chocolate. Taste is also malt with some chocolate and a little bitter.
