From tap at RRBC. Had this after having Pliny, so it's hard to rate this one. It's good, but didn't wow me. It's definitely a solid offering though for sure.

Poured into a pint glass from the source. An opaque dark brown color with a generous tan head. Great lacing in the glass. Aromas of coffee, toast, and roasted malt. Tasted like a classic robust porter: roasty with coffee, cocoa, and ash. Medium bodied with a fairly dry finish.

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.
