Bottle. This was an ok porter but nothing very special. I would give it a miss unless you have a reason to go for it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
