4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a thick, inky black color with a nice tan head. Great lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, some peat, with some great cocoa notes. Flavor is similar, with a strong roasted malt backbone. I took a trip to Portland a few years ago and got acquainted with this beer. I recall sitting on my friend’s porch on Gladstone St. on a summer night, throwing back a couple of these. What a great beer.

Meh. Ok, a bit thin, more roasts than I'd expect.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured into a nonick pint. Pours a deep, dark brown with a hint of ruby and a cream colored head. Nice lacing. Milk and dark chocolate with a hint of roasted coffee to the nose. Very roasty at first with some cream and vanilla. A little hoppy on a mostly dry and malty finish. Creamy and smooth palate with just a bit of carbonation. Excellent. Just a great porter. Really drinkable and I?ll be back for more!
