I first had this beer at the elysian itself and loved it, but when I found it in a 22 at the local mart it did not impress me. In the bottle itís more bitter and has less fullness.

Black with a thin head and lovely lace. Aroma is espresso with a hint of walnuts. Flavor is mellow if you sip it, but nice and bitter if you take a big drink. Coffee aftertaste. Good clean porter.

bartzluke (595) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 22, 2015
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 Iím not getting much of their fruitiness. Probably intentional considering the style, but I still miss it a little.

brokensail (15774) - 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.
