This beer is a tribute to the Steamship Carrie Ladd that ran freight and passengers from Portland to the Cascade Rapids (Cascade Locks) from 1859 to 1862. We ferment this beer with Czech Lager yeast at ale temperature to temper the sulfur that this yeast tends to throw. The unique ferment temperature also provides a fresh bread aroma with light cherry fruit overtones to this already rich, roasted, and robust porter. This style was widely popular among the pioneers that flocked to the coastal Northwest for the gold and timber rush.

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.

Tree bark brown color, minimal beige head. Earthy and roasted aroma. Chocolate as well. Taste is tree, hop, semi-sweet chocolate, and soil. Very smooth and well balanced. I think I can detect the notes of fruit in the intro. Well done.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2015 Bottle (500ml $3): Dark reddish brown with less than 1 finger of tan head that disappears. Smokey smell and taste. Medium body. A little more bitterness than most porters. Very drinkable. Update: (03/14/2015): Enjoyed this very much this time. Still did not get much on the aroma. Two finger head. Some better sweet chocholate. (was 3.3 now 3.5)

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle:   Brown, on the darker side, thin frothy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Nutty and whole wheat bready nose, very faint dark pitted fruit.   Roasty and sweet up front, a little like sweetened coffee, a bit husky on the backside, grainy husk like astringency.   Still remains sweet.   Sweeter than most, some coffee notes.   I am warming up to this one.   Soft hop bitterness.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Roasty finish, faint coffee notes.   Decent example, not real big or hoppy, but sweet, roasty, with some coffee notes.

16 ounce bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, and some fruit. Decent.

IndianaRed (2805) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 16, 2014
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

skoisirius (1834) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2014
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.
