On tap at E-San Thai in Portland.

A very dark brown with a dense and creamy brown head with excellent retention and nice lacing. The nose opens roasty and creamy with caramel, brown sugar, coffee grounds, a moderate acidity and chocolate. Nice. The palate opens sweet, roasty and with coffee , cocoa and caramel. Medium in body and with a long, creamy finish, this beer has lingering flavors of cocoa, coffee grounds and a touch of raisin. Solid.

A: Dark brown. Slight haze. Low cream head. Medium carbonation.

S: Wet rot from pine with strong wet vanilla. Slightly sweet.

T: Sweet and vanilla up front with some chocolaty notes. Mild char bittering follows like cold coffee. Finishes slightly funky of wet wood or decomposing dried leaves. Not a great finish, but still a lot of good parts here.

M: Finishes slightly dry and fairly clean. A bit thick and viscous.

O: Okay. I felt it was a tad over roasted at times. Too much of a sweetness background lends to a muddled flavor at the back of the tongue. Not bad, but not a repeat.

bottle courtesy of Rathakem from probably about a year ago. enjoyed from a beer hunter taster tulip.

a - brew was super carbed...when i opened it, the gas nearly rushed from the bottle making a huge fizzle sound and a pop. no liquid geysered, but the pour yielded more than half the glass of foamy head. once things got under control, there was a nice watery black under a nice greyish foamy head. as i sipped the brew, streaky chunks of lacing clung to the glass.

s - nose is definitively porter with a good char. decent chocolate notes over black malt.

t - the chocolate is not overwhelming, but certainly leads in the flavor...but blends nicely with the roast and char.

m - the feel is fairly full for a porter while still keeping the char. kind of toes the line of a stout.

o - overall, forgot about this bottle and am glad i opened it tonight since it is fully hitting the spot. this was a pleasant surprise and quite enjoyable and easy drinking.

Poured from 22oz bomber into pint glass.

A - very dark brown, almost black, half inch off-white head, some lacing.

S - heavy chocolate, roasted grains, slight caramel, faint bit of hops

T - weaker than the scent chocolate, caramel, more hops than I was expecting.

M - Medium bodied, appropriate carb, slight but of chewiness is nice.

Overall - A solid porter. good value and will be buying again.

[Suggested Glassware:]

The pour was a dark muddy brown with a slight reddish hue and a large (2-3 finger) light brown fluffy head that receded slowly, down to a nice thick cap which basically lasted throughout and produced some really excellent full sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a dark roasted malt and a bold leathery yeast with notes of molasses, milk chocolate, dark roasted coffee and a hint of ash.

The taste was extremely roasty and a little bitter sweet with a large malt presence and notes of molasses and chocolate pretty much throughout, progressing into a slightly bitterer taste with a strong milky coffee ending. The flavor lasted a good long time following the swallow, with a roasty choc-coffee taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just a bit beyond medium in body and quite creamy in texture with a carbonation that barely exceeded medium in intensity.

Overall this brew started with a delicious aroma and fantastic look, but ultimately tasted pretty average for a chocolate porter. Although I will say it was still a decently chocolaty and rather creamy, which made it and enjoyable and easy drinking beer...
