COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very approachable porter with a nice blend of chocolate and coffee notes and a subtle flavor of Northwest hops. A definite favorite around the brewery and a perfect partner to a hearty steak dinner.

Awesome 12 ounce can. Really cool design. Pours a pitch black color with a small beige head. A sweet nose of vanilla, coffee and caramel. A great flavor: sweet milky notes, chocolate, coffee, light nutty flavors, some earthy smoke. Good.

Aroma of roasted malts, with hints dark fruit. Pours an opaque blackish brown with no head or lacing. The taste is malty with hints of chocolate, and dark fruit. Midly bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium-full body and smooth carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable tasty porter

I got this at Paul’s Grocery in McCall, Idaho in August 2012. Sent a bottle to my buddy Strykzone in the Midwest as a trade item We opened it together and discussed it on Facebook Chat. This poured coal black with a good size tan head and big bubbles. Light lacing. Nose of roasted malts with chocolate and coffee. Mild aroma but very pleasant. Body is medium plus with a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel that slides down the back of your tongue like butter. The flavor is roasted malts with lots of chocolate and coffee, but not overly bitter. There is a spice in the finish that Dave called mint. I am not sure but something extra was there. The most remarkable thing about this beer is how easy it was to drink.. Smooth and mild overall but still with enough complexity to keep things intriguing. Overall a suburb porter that to me exactly what I like to see in this style\
