The beer as it sets in my glass, black-a-vised, the head is monumental in size, light chocolate in color and frothy in texture, as the head disappears, a thick coating of lace forms on the glass. Nose is roasted and toasted grains, sweet, crisp and fresh, a real treat for the senses, start is thickly malt and somewhat sweet, top is middling and rich in feel to the palate. Finish is moderately acidic, the hops pronounced in their spicy bite, bitter chocolate dry aftertaste, a nice porter that is certainly worthy a try for the lovers of the “Dark” side.

4 oz pour from tap into a cylindrical tasting glass at the brewery in Seattle. Black and opaque with a moderate head. Dry dark malts on the nose. A little earthy. Medium body. Dry. Taste is a step up from a typical English porter. Dry with a little smoke and a little chocolate. Flavorful, but nothing too obtrusive. Something I could drink a few of without much of a problem. The centennial add a nice bitterness, though I’m not getting much of their fruitiness. Probably intentional considering the style, but I still miss it a little.

brokensail (15468) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 1, 2014
On tap @ Elysian Capitol Hill. Black pour with a thick khaki head. Smells of coffee grounds, roasted malt, and a lot of earthy hops. Sort of ashy. Decent cocoa powder aroma. Flavor is a bit acidic and ashy. Some dust. Roasted malt, cocoa powder, and coffee grounds. Really earthy and kind of bitter.

A smoky porter right here! Tastes like toasted marshmallows by a fire pit with a dark coffee in hand. Strong smell of coffee beans, malt, smoke, bbq, bubble gum, little bit of chocolate. Medium body disappears quickly. Pretty dry. Is that what the wine comparison is for?
