I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at the brewery.

Appearance: dark dark hazy brown with a finger of super creamy tan foam. Great!

Smell: light and malty with a dash of roast. Not too bad.

Taste: roasty, rich and smooth. Bitterness kicks in only at the very end. A very solid porter.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a huge, well-integrated carbonation and a massive creaminess. Wow!

Overall: a very good porter indeed. Would love to get this up in WA.
