On tap at Golden Valley, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma has notes of oats, light powdery cocoa, and toasted bread. Flavour is along the same lines, with dry cocoa and oats. Not a robust porter in my books, but it’s clean. Decent but weak.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22. Pours an opaque black with a surging, gorgeous dark tan head and plenty of lace. Really sticks around for a while. Sweet sugary chocolate nose, even through the mountain of head. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sweet milk chocolate and maybe a bit of lacto tingly to it. Drinkable enough, not totally broken. But not in the greatest shape, either. Mild sweet finish.

From a 22 oz bottle this poured black with a moderate tan head and light lacing. Nose is of roasted malts with some chocolate aromas. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is more malts than hops, and the finish is a bit grainy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Market of Choice that I had to pick up due to the fact that I went to Dundee Elementary school. Nice dark brown pour with a small white head. Flavor isn’t bad, some roast and chocolate and the aroma is actually pretty good as well, but there’s a definite astringency to the beer that’s very off putting. Regardless though, I’ll keep supporting these (almost) my home town breweries until Newberg gets a brewery of its own. Hahaha, like that’ll ever happen.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Black pour, thin beige head. Malty and roasty aroma that is also a bit sour. Sour flavor with malt and yeast. Not a big fan of sour in my beers, especially in a porter. Not seeing this in anyone else’s rating, so maybe this bottle was infected. Will re-rate if I have it again and it tastes different.
