Bottle from Lep Ro Kan market in Moses Lake. Dark brown/black pour, initial giant beige head. Aroma is toast malts and milk chocolate. Taste is sweet and mildly bitter, more chocolate. Body seems a tad watery, but pretty tasty stuff.

On tap on a harbor cruise through Argosy Cruises in Seattle, WA.

This pours a thick looking dark black, with a small fluffy head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like lactose, with chocolate, and slight roast.

The body on this is quite weird and really affects the flavor profile. It's simultaneously thick and fluffy but also thin and insubstantial. There's lots of lactose, with very light chocolate and roast.

This is kind of weird but not altogether unenjoyable.

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.

On tap at the Eastside. Have been drinking this now for the past couple weeks. Dark brown with a tan head, bit of lace. Smells normal for a porter, some chocolate, bunch of roast a bit of coffee. The mouthfeel is pretty solid, I didn't find it thin or lacking as Josh did, but so it goes. It's got a nice solid punch of coffee and chocolate, good roasty taste. Pretty solid overall. I keep finding myself ordering at least a pint every eve I find myself down at the forbidden well.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and slight dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with char and slight dark fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice aroma and some tasty flavors for the style.

Color is a dark reddish brown in the Chimay chalice. Giving it a little extra vigor in the pour makes for a handsome dark beige head. Quite a pleasant sudsy mouthfeel. Just a whiff of coffee grounds. The body is fairly light with only a touch of sweetness. Some warm roasted malt greets the lips, followed by waves of the dark and scorched barley.

The touch of charcoal sourness in the finish is interesting. The last gasp of flavor expires on the tongue and leaves a watery grave. This is a nice "light" brew with quaffing in mind. The flavors are nothing special, and the grainy stew may not be your cup of tea. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bottleworks in Seattle.

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.
