Balanced complement is provided by Willamette bittering hops with Cascade at the finish.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear cola brown with a thin to medium sized tan head. Slightly vegetal with some clay and wet earth, roast. Medium bodied, plastic and roast. Roast and bitterness on the finish. Weird.

Cocoa chocolate aroma and flavor. A bit on the bitter side but has a slight sweet maltiness. Not as full bodied a some porters and a slight lagerish funk to the finish. Still not a bad Porter. Very drinkable and has some nice character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Chriso tasting, thanks Chris, 18/11/12. Mahogony brown with a thin tan head that soon clears to the edge. Nose is sweet toffee, sugars, molasses. Tastes as nose, too sweet not enough balance, malt seems lacking for a porter. Toffee, sugars, a little tobacco. Medium bodied, soft carbonation with a roasted sweet finish. Another rare US beer for the ’W’ cupboard!

Bottle at Chriso Tasting, London. Thanks to Chris - my first Troy tick? Pours rich brown iwth a fine, brown cream head. Dark bready malt nose, hints of diacetyl. Light sweet flavor with toasty bread, some toffee, light earth. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Modest dryness to finish with further earth and toast. OK beer.

Deep brown/black, minimal head. Chocolate and roasted malt are present here in quantity. There are some burnt notes, a touch of vanilla, and a bit of hops. A solid porter, which is often compared (unfairly) to its big brother, the Whiskey Porter. A worthy pint, for sure.

On draught at the brewpub. Arrived at the table a dark brown with a thin light brown head that lasted through the first two sips and left partial lace. Mild aroma of chocolate and just a bit of roasted malt. Thankfully, more flavorful than the aroma suggests with ample roasted malt and just a hint of chocolate. There is some mild roast bitterness at the finish. Smooth and lightly carbonated, which I enjoyed. Good porter.

A - Served a deep dark black color with some brown hues around the edges. There is a finger of off-white head atop that fades down to a super thin ring leaving behind a bit of lace. S - Aroma is full of roasted and lightly burnt sweet caramel malt. There is some chocolate and coffee as well in the background. T - Starts off with brunt sweet caramel malt with lots of roasted flavors mixing in. There is also a bit of chocolate in the background. Through the middle some more burnt flavor comes through with a bit of hop flavor. The finish adds a bit of coffee flavor with a touch of bitterness that lingers nicely. M - Medium bodied with moderate-low carbonation. Feels smooth and just a touch creamy. There is some nice lingering roasted and burnt flavors that create a touch of dryness. D - Very drinkable. Tastes really well balanced with a lot of roasted and burnt flavors that are really tasty. Very nice coffee and chocolate flavors mixed in.
