Absolutely black color with one finger of tan five minute head. Some rings of lace.
Smell is coffee smoke a touch of molasses.
Taste is bitter coffee some smoke a touch of molasses and a strong bitterness from the hops.
Mouthfeel is medium with proper carbonation. The finish is boldly bitter and medium dry.
Overall a different take on the style. The sweetness I normally expect from this style is beat down by the char and bitter aspect. If you love the bitter end of the spectrum give this try.

Tap at Boise Fry Co. Dark with medium beige head, lots of roast grains and espresso bitterness. Smooth with a little bitterness on the backside. One of my early introductions to Boise brewing.

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown color with a one finger head of cream colored foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is very roasty with a moderate showing of a coffee smell mixed within. Along with these smells comes some notes of crème and a bit of smoke.

Taste – The taste begins as the nose would have let on, with a drier roasty taste. As the taste advances from the start some light grainy and yeasty tastes work their way onto the tongue. All the while a hint of caramel and some smoke and char work their way onto the tongue as well. There is a coffee flavor which starts to develop after the initial tastes, with this flavor soon fading later on more toward the end. With more smoke and a loss of the caramel, one is left with a drier and roasty taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner and more watery side with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the style it was not really all that great as it took away from the dark and smokier tastes of the brew.

Overall – Other than the feel the porter was rather nice for a dry roasty porter. And with the abv. of only 5.5 % it makes it a bit more manageable for a good autumn football brew.

Pours dark black with a leather head. Smooth mouth feel with roasted malt aroma. Some coffee and brown sugar tastes come through okay, but the soy sauce bitterness overtakes the porter and overdoes it IMO. Not my favorite porter out there.

12oz can purchased at Pilgrim’s in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, for $1.59. No freshness date.

Poured a viscousy black color into a Jones Radiator mug. Thin tan head. Spotty lace.

Bitter, dark, roasted malt aroma dominates the scent profile of this beer, with some brown sugar and soy sauce notes.

Coffee and soy sauce bitterness vie with brown sugary sweetness, with the bitterness winning out. The soy sauce could be dialed down a little in my opinion.

Velvety-smooth mouthfeel to this. Carbonation seems a little low.

A decent porter, nothing great. I wouldn’t refuse one, but there’s better porters to be found in my neck of the woods.
