Pretty black brown, almost opaque, thin brown head fades to a ring. Smells like dark fruit and ever so slightly of wet dog, or fresh snow. Taste is nice roasty, lightly sweet brown sugar and roasted malt, fades to bitter roasted malt finish. Such great balance. A little heavy on carbonation, but not bad, and bubbles are very fine, slightly sharp, body is not heavy, but not thin, again great balance between smooth and rich yet drinkable. This is my idea of a great porter.

4oz pour at the brew pub. Pous black with a medium tan head...retention and lacing are average. Aroma has light smoke. Flavor is very roasted and has some smoke, molasses,citrus, and coffee. Mouthfeel is silky and creamy with a dry roasted finish that lingers. Pretty well made, hate to say it but moose tooth is stating to taste a bit better than piece brewery.

On tap at Moose’s Tooth, Anchorage. Deep garnet body, thin tight cream head. Dry nose with toast and coffee. Body dominated by dark chocolate, coffee, and rich roasted malts. Quite good- a dry, roasty, very nice rendition.

Smell wasn’t strong and while it had a good head, it dissipated too quickly. Dark brown but clear. Effervescent and thin, slightly astringent on the finish. Most noticeably nutty, roasted malt flavor, coffee-like. Nothing crazy for a porter.

On tap @ Moose’s Tooth. Roasted malt aroma with a faint hint of hops. Dark brown with a bit of light showing through the side of the glass. Mostly sweet taste that has a very slight bitterness. All around good porter, fairly robust and very smooth.
