3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at 16 Tons Cafe, Eugene. We all know Cascade’s fantastic sours, this was a different tack for them. Lots of tan head, color is an opalescent brown. Subtle funk and floral aroma, with some toasty elements as well. Hops were barely there, seems kind of a waste. A pretty good porter but a mediocre fresh hop beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Pine Box. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a tan milky head leaving perfect concentric lacing. Lovely. Aroma has milk chocolate, coffee, oatmeal. Taste is of sweet chocolate, some roasted malt. Not getting "hoppiness" unless I look for it, and then perhaps hints of hops. Finishes smoothly chocolate and chocolate/roasty bittersweet. Nice porter, possibly a bit thin, with good flavor, but don’t suggest hops to me.

Tap @ Cascade Barrel House... Near black poor with a thick, off-white head. Floral and resinous with hops tones. Slight roast, lots of grains, herbal spiciness, grass, charred woody characters. Sugar, cookie-dough, and roast came back in the finish.
