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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle:   Soft roasty Porter, low bitterness, smidgen of chocolate and pasture.   Very soft example, not a hoppy PNW example.   More malty, yet its pretty soft.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes a little light, soft chocolate notes, pale roastiness.   Wished it were a bit bigger, but the fact that its not too hoppy seems to keep it in balance.

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.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some chocolate and roasted malt notes. The flavor is full of the same notes with some dark chocolate character really standing out. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice porter.

Strykzone (5004) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Bomber from Hayduke. We enjoyed it together via facebook chat. This was a hidden gem Ron found in Idaho. It poured black and I finally saw red in the last half inch. I poured it at about 53 degrees F and it warmed from there. A nose of chocolate, roasted notes, and softer hops. The flavor began earthy and a bit sour. Soon the West Coast hops stood up with mildly bitter citrus. Cocoa was evident but no coffee. Late in the glass mint popped up and that, along with earth, was the finish. This was definitely nice and it was just a small notch short of a top of the line porter.
