Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-dark soft brown color with a thin finger’s worth of off white foamy head. Spider web lace. The aroma had milk and dark chocolate, delicate roast. Sly coffee far underneath. The flavor lends a hand to the sweet side initially and then as it warms, some roast and coffee comes through. Balanced somewhat of an aftertaste. Quick dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. Nice ABV and feels appropriate. Overall, nice porter worthy of more pours.

Hefty brown pour, 1/2" off white head. Lots of roasted chocolate malt.

Keeps the roast train going, plenty of hops here, Cascade I suspect to up the bitterness and make this a robust porter. Keeps plenty of malt up in there for a chewy thick session. Alcohol restrained, this is a good porter for those who like 'em malty, roasted and bitter-hoppy.

Was a light easy drinking beer. But not my favorite. Nothing really great. Had a bit of a weird aftertaste!

Anderson Valley Deep Enders Dark Porter on tap at Engine 15 (JAX).
Good looking clear, reddish-brown body. Dark body is topped by a decent head with excellent lacing.
Very nice aroma that precedes a relatively mild (weak) but appealing flavor.
The body seems a bit too thin.

Not bad, not great. An absolute middle-of-the-road porter with no surprises, good or bad. I don't feel like I wasted my money; I'd say this was enjoyable but unremarkable in every way.

I like it. Is that justification enough?

My next keg, good but not awe inspiring. I'm still comparing everything to Edmund Fitzgerald and they are losing. This is clearly a good beer, dark and complex and coffee and intrigue, but I'm left wanting and it is hard to describe why. Slighly shallow.
