Brewed for our friends at the 9 Pound Hammer here in Georgetown, this is an exceptionally flavorful medium bodied porter. We use tons of Chocolate, Munich, and Roasted Malt, then blend it with Centennial and Northern Brewer hops to create what we like to call Roasted Chocolaty Goodness. Mmm.. porter. Buy it by the pint at the Nine Pound Hammer or come on in to our retail shop for growlers to go!

On tap at Safeco Field (I was at a game where the Mariners actually won..) A little touch of acidity, but a good depth. It certainly got better as it warmed. Quite bitter and not terribly smooth though.

Schooner at College Inn after mis-timing my bus transfer. Oh well, carpe diem (noctum? Wish I knew Latin). Clear cola color, some head, irregular lacing. Some sweetness, but much more on the nutty, roasty side of the spectrum. Robust, with medium body and slick texture. Solid brew.

On tap at Georgetown, pours near-black with a medium tan head. Aroma is well-balanced, with roast and dry cocoa. Flavour is fairly robust, with with dry cocoa and roasted malt. Good balance that is highly drinkable. Solid porter.

Draft, some head, great lace. Aroma coffee, roasted barley, faint dark fruit. Taste is roasted barley, coffee and dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, faint dark fruit. Palate is good, but not heavy, carbonation subdued. Overall this is a really good Porter.

Zeswaft (1437) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Tap. Typical black appearance. Aroma of faint chocolate and roasted malts but also a generic beer aroma. Flavor is the same. Mocha and sort of tame, bordering not too flavorful.

I must be losing my taste for Porters. I’ve had so many over the years, and so few that really surprise me anymore. This one, like usual these days, is just good enough to keep Porter as one of my very favorite styles, while making this beer nothing close to one of my very favorite beers.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 Bomb. Dark chestnut black color. Great coffee grounds flavors. Sweet. creamy. Clean...great dryness to it. Delish chaffiness.

maxwelldeux (4038) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Draught. Pours a near-black color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is roasty with a fair amount of chocolate coming off it. Taste is also quite roasty with just a little bit of sweetness coming off it, and some chocolate coming throughout. Nice drink.

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2014
Roasted, chocolate, slight coffee nose. Big coffee roasted malt flavor in the initial sip which leads to a sweet almost lactose like sweetness in the middle. Finish is rounded and bitter. Sweetness is slightly cloying and lingers in the afterbreath. Sessionable, mostly sweet, roasted porter which I wouldn’t reach for again.
