A deep brown colored beer which pours with very little head, but what foaminess is there is nicely structured. Some spotty lacing. Aroma has a butterscotch upfront smell with some roasted malts and coffee. On the paleete the taste is weak and washed out. There are hints of roasted malts but really are quite light. Mouthfeel as stated is thin and watery. This beer needs alittle help, whether its a bad bottle I donít know. A metallic taste slso dominates this beer both in nose and pallette. Iíll mark to try at a latter date.

Dark with a light tan head. Not too heavy, but full bodied. Roasty taste with a hint of char. Hint of chocolate, but not too strong.

Bottle. Pours brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is caramel and roasted malts, nutty grains and bread. Flavor is sweet and similar to the aroma but with a touch of chocolate. Finish is slightly dry and nicely bitter.

355mL bottle poured dark brown with red highlights in the light and a creamy thick beige head with nice retention and lacing. Aromas of roasted malt and chocolate and a hint of coffee. Taste is roasted malty sweetness and chocolate balanced with some coffee and hop bitterness in the finish. This is an enjoyable tasting experience.

On tap at Anderson Valley in August 2009. Reviewed from notes. Pours near black with a light mocha head. Some lacing. Nose brings forward faint hints of chocolate and coffee along with a bit of a buttery toffee. Taste brings a bit more butter, which is quite unpleasant. Coffee and roasted malt cover up a bit, but not enough. Feel is of a moderate body and somewhat dry. Not one of their better offerings. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-07-2010

Thatís a damn nice porter. Pours deep brown with a thin cappuccino head and some clings. Lovely mocha aroma with some vanilla. Nutty, chocolate, caramel in the taste with a lingering coffee finish.
