22 oz bottle from Fred Meyers, Wilsonville. $4.29 Dark mahogany brown body with a very attractive light tan head..that is thick and creamy. Good and rich dark chocolaty aromas..along with roasted hazelnut and cream. Taste is much the same as the aroma but more dark french roast coffee aspects..the chocolate remains strong though. The mouthfeel however lets the beer down starts great and luscious than quickly fades to an almost watery finish. Good beer however.

Dark brown with dark amber highlights. Good amount of head that goes quick to lacing. Appropriate for a porter. Nice chocolate in the nose, but something off here as well. Tast follows with dark roast malt (chocolate), but somewhat astringent. Mouthfeel suffers from the astringency as well. Better than some things trying to pass for porters, but on the whole average.

A- More brown than black, mostly a dark brown coffee hue. Light tan cap, a bit creamy, virtually no lacing or head retention.

S- Light aromas of milk chocolate, mild dark bread, and barley. Slight roasty notes and dark breads.

T- Initial tastes of faint smoke, followed by a smooth, creamy chocolate flavor mid-palate. I felt the taste was a bit darker and didn't quite match the nose or appearance. Finishes with a slim coffee roast, subtle dark malts, and more chocolate.

MF- A bit thin with some creamy texture. Low carbonation and a dry astringent character left over on the palate. A bit like black coffee.

A fairly subtle and straightforward brew. Nothing overwhelmingly dominant in the flavor profile, which promotes easy drinkability. Simple. Could improve with some coffee or maybe oak aged?

Very dark brown with ruby highlights. Good, creamy tan head with decent head retention.

Milk chocolate with a touch of earthy roast. Good.

Smooth chocolatey malt with a hint of roast and light coffee. Quite creamy and balanced.

Medium body with silky smooth carbonation. Good.

A really solid beer and the best of the bunch at the pub. Chocolatey, smooth and silky.
