Really casual and nice Porter. Drinkable is the name of the game here. The color is a little light for a Porter, somewhere between a cola and a dark tea. Nice tan head. The smell is like an English brown, pure sweet roasted malt. The taste also has a hybrid Porter/Brown thing going on: malt caramel goodness, hops in the background and just enough to balance the beer subtly, with a little chocolate malt bite on the finish. While I love my high gravity and super complex stouts, this is just a damned fine beer that I could (and will) drink all night.

Dark brown, minimal head.

This beer is very nutty, as well as pretty dry with highly bitter coffee notes. I like it, the dryness makes it drinkable.

If you don't need sugar in your coffee and you like porters, then this is for you.

Serving: On tap, sampler, on the brewery 'tour' at the Woodinville, WA brewhouse
Served: 4 July 2015

Appearance: Pours a dark black with an off white head that quickly collapses into nothingness, much like Redhook's other beers. Color looks fine for a porter though.

Aroma: Very weakly assertive dark chocolate and french roasted coffee notes, but nothing really interesting. Graininess also evident.

Taste: Better than the nose, with soft notes of dark chocolate, cacao nibs, and espresso coming through. Slight burnt toast characteristic, but nothing overpowering. An enjoyable beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium-low carbonation. Pretty normal for the style.

Overall: In all, a pretty decent beer and one of the best from Redhook.
