I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at Bottleworks in Seattle.

Appearance: totally black with a thin layer of tan foam. A nice lace is left on the glass.

Smell: a bit ashy and charcoaly, which I happen to really like. Rich and enticing.

Taste: ashy and roasty like the aroma, although a bit more so. Bitter at the end with a dry finish. Good, but kind of mild for such a roasty brew.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a great carbonation and wonderful creaminess. Bam!

Overall: tasty and drinkable, if a bit ashy and dry. I'd have this again.

A: dark. Deep brown to black. Held up to light you can see deep red to purple. Thin, brown head.
S: roasty. Chocolate.
T: roasty, chocolate malt, easy on the roasted barley and black patent. Balanced well.
M: a little too carbonated for a Porter, for me. Almost spritzy. Medium body, Halle Berry.
O: a great porter. Not too bold, but I like it like this. Would have rated higher if the carbonation was toned down a little.

Pours nearly black, with a couple fingers of beige head. Foamy lace. Some roasted malt aromas, light coffee, and a dry chocolate powder accentuates the nose. Taste dry, chocolaty, roast, sligh coffee bitterness, lightly sweet. Medium body, adequate carbonation, dry, easy drinking. Overall, a solid American porter.

On tap at the Schooner Exact taproom.

This is a dark beer. I couldn't tell about the head because the SE folks served me a glass full to the brim ... if there was a head, they had poured it off. Good lacing once I had drunk a bit.

Smell and taste are both pretty roasty, even to the point of charring. The beer even had a bit of tartness to it, I thought, just a bit.

Body is thin.

Overall, this is a pretty average porter, perfectly OK and a decent representative of the style, but nothing to stand out from the pack.

22oz into an imperial pint glass. Pours a deep transparent brown w/ a big crackling khaki head that settles to a fluffy pillow of foam, some nice lacing.

Aroma is roasty, chocolatey, and bitter, but also a bit muddled.

Taste is likewise bitter and sharp, roasty. Coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt.

Mouthfeel is clean and balanced, maybe a little thin. More in the range of an English porter in terms of body. Smooth and velvety.

Overall a decent, drinkable porter but nothing superlative.
