The "9th Gate" greets its imbiber with earthy undertones on the nose amidst a faint smoky essence backed firmly by an aroma of roasted chestnut and soft leather. At first glance one can see a deep reddish brown center fading to a delicate clear auburn hue at the edge of the glass. The subtle nuttiness continues on the palate with a faint suggestion of peanut shell and almond essence that balances nicely with a kiss of bitterness delivered by the Willamette hops. STYLE - DARK MILD.

Draft at Meridian Pint for DC Brau’s 3rd Anniversary, Poured a clear dark brown color with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma was light toasted malt, some light coffee and a touch of dried fruits and some light earthy hop. Flavor was some light hops, very light coffee and some very mild chocolate notes.

Growler shared with NMann08. Pours a translucent, deep brown with some fluffy white head. Nose like a stout, some dried malt, some bread crust, light coffee, some raisin sweetness. Flavor is absolutely spot on, some light chocolate, some very mild coffee, a little bread crust, some dried fruit. Mostly dry finish. Completely drinkable. Dark mild might be a stretch, because to me this is a session stout. Great idea, great execution, excellent beer.
