Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma of a mocha dominates, roasted malts, chocolate, hint of vanilla. The flavor follows suit, there is a bit more vanilla. Very nice chocolaty porter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Super dense, deep brown coloured body with a large, two or three centimetre tall brown head - very nice looking. Aroma of super pungent alcohol, nuts, chocolate, earth, peat and even nutmeg. Medium-bodied; Dense malty flavour at first with tons of chocolate, some nuts, a bit of anise and fennel seed with a hint of cacao or white pepper on the finish. Aftertaste quite complex given the style, but some spice notes play out with a bit of an earthiness mixed with the chocolate and robust malt flavours. Overall,a very nice porter with some good flavours and even better complexity - still easy to drink, too! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 28-February-2012 for US$1.65 sampled at home in Washington on 13-August-2012.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a finger of light beige head that leaves some thin spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by chocolate malts with some roasted notes. Taste is lots of chocolate malt sweetness with some roasted bitterness and mild hop bitterness as well. A little thin on body for the style and lightly carbonated. However, this is still a fine porter and was very tasty and easy going down.
