Very Good
Notes: Luscious and silky smooth with a body to match, OP Porter is uncompromisingly rich yet surprisingly drinkable. A complex blend of dark malts and real milk sugar creates the bold flavors of dark roast coffee mingling with farm fresh cream. For the stout and porter lover in each of us, OP is a knockout.

Arrives superbly dark brown with a finger high light tan head. Retention is OK, lacing is scant and scattered.
Smell is toasted malt, cocoa, coffee and cardboard. Balance is good.
Target is more of the same, heavily toasted malts, coffee, cardboard and baking chocolate, I.e., bitter chocolate. A hint of caramel finishes it off.
Medium bodied, medium effervescence and a hint of warming late in the pint. Reasonably smooth. I'd have to sum it up as a good brew but a far shot from Last Snow.

On tap at the brewery. Complex layers of bitter chocolate, burnt barley, slight smokiness, earthy hops and a touch of coffee. Silky smooth and medium bodied goodness. This beer has a great balance and drinkability.

Had this on draft at the local Funky Buddha Brewery. Enjoyed with some tacos from Chacos a food truck parked out front. Went well with tacos. A classic porter with a great fresh taste

On draft, pours a dark brown with a light brown/tan head.

Smell is roasty; toasted oats, hazelnut with bitter hops and a little malt. Flavor is sweet at first, roasted malt, coffee bitterness and dark chocolate. This paired with the sweetness makes me think of coffee with Splenda in it. The bitterness and crystal malts are not working together well enough on this to make me like it more. It is a little unbalanced.
