Bottle. Pours a dark, brown color with a thin, tan head. Roasted malt aroma with some toffee and cherries. Smoked, malt aroma with a large sense of cherries. The finish lingers. Honestly, not the best porter but still has an interesting taste.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good; cola with foamy light beige head. Smells and tastes of dark malt and blueberries with some roast too. Average on the palate. Okay, but forgettable, and I couldn’t drink much of it.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at CGarvie tasting (release #1). It pours very dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is buttered toast, roasted malt....not much else. The taste is dark fruit, berry, light tanginess, roasty, earth, faint jam, toast, light spice and wood. Medium body and fine carbonation. Odd...tastes better than the buttery smell anyways!

Bomber from sledutah. Delicious blackberry aroma from a dark pour. Nice fruity flavor over the malty porter. Just a hint of spruce tips. A bit sour on the finish.

Bottle. Very dark brown with tan head. Strange aroma, buttery, sweaty. Similar taste, sweaty socks, some fruit. Tangy, slightly sour. Not great

Certainly not your traditional porter! I sort of like it! Never thought I would describe a porter as "refreshing," but this one is. It actually blends / melds pretty well. Not something I would drink all the time, but nice to try.

Bottle. Perfect visuals for an American porter. Big, dark, black, frothy and rich-looking. The aroma is killer -- full of sweet roast, hops, and a bit of spruce. This drinks with a big time mouthfeel, and full of flavor. The spruce adds and phenomenal factor, a bit of earthy flourish to an already full-up porter. Brilliant. I want more. (#4987, 4/15/2013)
