500, capped. Consumed in Everett, Washington. Oh, the humanity. Thanks, M! You sure do know how to hook the guys up. Really appreciating all of these. Pours an opaque ebony with a loose, falling light tan head. Beautifully balanced cocoa nose, with soft wood notes, light earth, distant bittersweet chocolate. Creamy thick body with soft carb. Chocolate, cocoa, earth, and roasty malts on the mid palate. Beautifully balanced and coherent, just gorgeous.

It’s a really good and really roasty porter. I think I like it less than Ed Fitz and a few others but it’s still pretty damn great.

Bouttle thanks to trade with bigda83! Pours an opaque black from 500mL with thin lacy brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of roasty malt, earthy middle, and dark chocolate undertones. Taste is more toward the chocolate, with a bit of fruity yeast character. Thicker than normal porter, and definitely well done, but not sure it’s as great as everyone makes it out to be.

Nice roasted malt aroma and flavor. Dry but a slight sweet finish. Almost a cocoa like dryness. Full flavored but light enough to be an easy drinking porter. Slight smoke feel but that might be more the cocoa dryness? Super balanced and an awesome porter. Such a flavorful body but without a sticky palate and super easy drinking for how much flavor it has.

This is a really awesome beer. Sweet and chocolatey, with a lot of roasted flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth and full. A near-perfect Porter.
