22oz bomber poured to tulip

Pours a serious dark brown with a good finder and a half of medium tan head. Head lays over but the bubbles stay active

Aroma is faint, a bit chocolate and vegetal, and not this beer's strong suit

Flavor hits some great roasty and chocolate notes, almost boozy which is odd at 5.5%

Mouthfeel is generally on the light side

As a fan of all things dark, I was pleased to get my hands on one from my old stomping grounds, and it did not disappoint, Solid sweet tasty with just a hint of bitterness to round it out. Perhaps a bit south of world class, but I would not hesitate to grab another one... technically solid..

Not being a huge Porter fan myself I find this beer very approachable. It runs laps around Deschutes Black Butte Porter, just the right balance of smokiness with a hint of chocolate and coffee. A perfectly smooth finish with no bitterness it begs to be joined with a nice cigar.

Pours a half finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is mostly burnt malt and wood.
The taste is a smooth burnt and roasted malt with a mild lemon bitter finish.
The texture is smooth with crisper edges and moderate carbonation.
A nice solid drinkable porter. Enjoyable.

Reddish cast to the dark brown brew in the St. Bernardus globe. Not much foam. Some carbonation in the mouth but it all flattens out after a while. A little red wine in the nose with the malty smell.

Dark and a little zingy, with lots of the mild roast and caramel. Not very sweet. Some grainy taste and a faint hint of charred barley. A faint bitterness and the dark woody notes for the aftertaste. Watery body.

This has some charms but it's probably better on tap from a fressh keg. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Market of Choice on 29th in Eugene.
