16oz bottle pours a dark brown with tan head. Tons of rich coco notes both in aroma and flavor. Big robust porter body with a malty chocolate finish. Each sip is lively, this is a really great porter if not the best of the year so far for me.

On Tap at the River Room, Whole Foods, Boise Clear redish brown with a small soapy light tan head. Light rpast aroma, busy flavors of roast, some of that fruity notes that the lager yeast leaves and a dry but chalky trailer. Strange bitterness. Calling it a porter got my hopes up a little too much

Solid decent straight down the middle road porter here. All the mild roast and cocoa and bitter ends possible, blended well. YuM!

On tap. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. A nice rich chocolate bready nose. The flavor is great: chocolates, sweet caramel, German bread, some dry metallic roast. Very good Porter. Drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a finger and half of rounded head on a black body. Looks amazing.
The aroma is coffee with roasted malt.
The taste is dark chocolate, coffee, roasted and burnt malt in the best blend.
The texture is super smooth with low carbonation.
