On tap at Rockfish Grill / Anacortes Brewery, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small off-white head. Aroma is nice, with notes of fruit, light roast and cocoa. Flavour is likewise well-designed, with notes of roasted malt, dry cocoa and some dry light coffee. Very well-constructed porter with everything in correct proportion. Great one.

Draught, into a growler. Pours a dark brown color with a small off-white head on there. Nose is quite roasty, but little else to it. Taste is extremely roasty, yet comes off as light, and feels like a remarkably easy drink. Definitely a lighter porter.

Draft at uber. Dark pour, creamy khaki head. Aroma of chocolate, cherries, and coffee/roast. Taste: moderately sweet, coffee and cola, very light bitterness at the rear. Light body, feels a bit thin, average carbonation, easy to drink, with sort of a seltzer water quality. Overall: this is alright, and easily sessionable.

Pint @ Rock Fish. Practically perfect representation of a porter. Beautiful coffee bean aroma with a subdued roasty body. This should be drank in great quantities (over long periods of time).

A draft pour at the brewpub this showed up a dark mahogany with tan head and light lacing. Nose of roasted malts and floral hops. Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. Flavor shows chocolate and the finish is lightly bitter. True to style and easy drinking.
