On tap at the pub at the University of Washington, this black, thick, sweet, porter is absolutely wonderful. Great balance, mouthfeel, finish..I just wish they would send it to my side of the country!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pour pint at stop #1 of my on foot Seattle tour. Research for an upcoming video documented experience. I am thankful for the wealth of beer places and breweries that are open at 11 on a Monday/Holiday. Listed at 5.4. Cola black pour with a cream foam head and lace. Sugar sweet, light roast aroma. Flavor is rich chocolate, soft roast, and a bit watery. Has a decent hop presence as well. If I didn’t know better I could mix this up with a CDA, but the styles seem to overlap in certain cases anyway. Overall a tasty beer, but a little watery and I’m missing the bold porter factor that I love. Still a good beer though.

Draft at brewpub. Hazy cola brown, small foam. Soft chocolately roast malt. Nice creamy, tasty body. Lots of flavor all around, a little sweet in the finish. Not the most defined or sharpest beer around, but tasty porter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Big Time, pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out notes of charcoal in typical coal porter fashion. Flavour is well-balanced, with dry cocoa powder and light roast. Decent porter, just nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at big time. How the hell I haven’t rated this yet? Used to be the only thing I ordered when I came here. Dark brown pour (opaque, but light brown around the edges) with creamy head, decent retention, good lacing. Nutty, roasty, some dark fruit. Chocolate and roast in balance. Taste is somewhat sweet with a balanced lightly bitter roasty finish. Medium- body, average carbonation. Oily texture. Overall: still my favorite big time beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Brownish black with thin, fading layer of beige foam. Very smokey, like the Makisupa stout. Roasted barley and blackened coffee, with a syrup sweetener. Mildly sweet, very dry. A little rough and rugged for a porter.
