1/2 gallon growler.

This beer is a deep deep shade of ruby. Minimal uv rays actually penetrate and make it through this beer. A hefty whipped cream like head sits on top and has great retention. This light brown colored head laces with authority. Aroma is astounding. Roasted malts, cocoa, baker's chocolate, cascades and a bit of smoke. The taste follows suit. Excellent. The perfect amount of roasted bitterness mixed in with a slight dose of west coast style hop bittering. The bittersweet chocolate and dry cocoa really stand out in this one. The nice silky mouthfeel really facillitates the drinking process. I started this growler about 45 minutes ago and it is damn near gone. Tasty. Creamy. Delicious. Gone.

Lake Louie. A brewery to be reckoned with.

Many thanks to cokes for the elixir.

1/2 G Growler. Pre-filled from brewery.

A menacing ruby-purple that is about a shade and a half from udderly black. Large and lasting beige froth sits atop.
Dry cocoa and milk chocolate aromatics enhanced by some spicy hop bite. There is a strange but alluring sense of growing grass here as well.

This was described to me as Tom (the brewer)'s hop experimentation with the Tommy's Porter. A one-off, "mistake" brew. A wonderful and interesting mistake indeed.

Begins with a heavy accent towards cocoa. A coffee bean presence appears and shifts everything towards mocha. Some vanilla bean essence too. Turns a bit smoky and earthy midway. Dirty tasting and gritty, but lovely all the while. A bit of sweetness emerges from the depths. Burnt caramel and molasses. Dried cherry skins add to the sweet tones and mixes some light but intriguing tartness into the fray. The hopping, although relatively subdued, turns this quite interesting....

Three Henry's must be an allusion to the types of hops used. I am guessing here. But it sure seems that some Hallertau spice and grass are noticed. Mt Hoods too? I am not sure what the third "H" might be, but it seems lightly flowery and more American.

This is supremely different, balanced and bold porter with a seemingly Germanic Pedigree.
Powdery and soft inside the mouth. No noticable carbonation gives the a cask-type feel.

Drinkable. Drankable. Drunkable. Gone.

Very, very good. And different too.
