22 oz bottle, unclear date code

Very dark brown, tan head that fades. Aroma of milk chocolate. Taste is mostly chocolate too, but not sweet. Bitterness is enough to balance. Thicker bodied.

22 oz bottle shared during dessert at Thanksgiving. L: Very dark brown with good head retention, not overpowering. S: Dark roasted malt, hint of chocolate. T: Labeled as robust porter, and definitely fulfills that. Strong roasted, robust malt flavors. Only a hint of chocolate and bitterness very low. F: Medium, lighter bodied, just under 6% abv as well. O: Stoked my brother brought me a bottle of this to try from Seattle.

On tap at the brewery.

A: Chocolate brown with a tan one finger head that lingered. Thick lacing.

S: Roasted chocolate, coffee, and cocoa.

T: The char comes through, featuring chocolate, cocoa and a coffee bitterness on the finish that gives this one an English Brown Ale feel.

M: Medium with medium, dry carbonation.

O: I wasn't expecting so much coffee on the finish, but still a decent porter. Very affordable in a bomber.

Poured from a torpedo into a pint. Roasty, toasty and creamy best describe this porter. There is a wonderful balance with coffee notes and a bit of chocolate with subtle hops. I enjoyed this porter and will buy again.
