3fourths (7979) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Draught at the brewery
Rich, smoky dark nose, dusty and creamy. Flavor is sharp bread crust and blak cherries, some really nice roasted plums and blackberries, with a thick chocolate and smoke layer. A little thin on the tongue, though not a big factor. A unique porter.

hayduke (3344) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 28, 2011
This was a draft pour at the Brewpub in LaConner. Color was dark brown with a tan head and lots of rich lacing. Nose is roasted malts with some chocolate. Medium body with a smooth texture in the mouth. The flavor is roasted malts with a touch of sourness. Bitterness in the finish. True to style and easy drinking.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 1, 2005
(Draft: LaConner Brewing Company in LaConner, WA) Moderately roasty and chocolaty nose also exudes a bit of sourness. Okay, perhaps more than a bit. It smells like there is sour cherries in the mix, but that’s certainly not intentional. The flavor is fairly sour as well, with a moderate roasty and fruity character in the background. Since this isn’t the desired effect, it’s quite strange to say the least. Supposedly this beer is on nitro, but nothing speaks nitro in this beer. The tan head is small and very bubbly, and leaves no lace on the glass. The palate seems no more smooth than a normal draft beer, and the sourness is a bit unpleasant. Dark brown color is standard for a porter. Might be an okay porter, but the sourness is not good.

Pacific Northwest Vacation 2007...

8/18/2007: LaConner Porter was induced with nitrogen and therefore created a dense (super fine bubbles), creamy tan head atop the very deep brown beer. The head lasted for quite some time and produces solid lacing comprised of tiny bubbles. The aroma is creamy, roasty chocolate with a slightly acidic or sour note. The flavor was watered down roasted malt with notes of chocolate and char. It is dry and bordered on ashy. There is a mild to moderater level of bitterness in the finish. This beer was average to above average overall.

Draught (7% ABV) at LaConner Brewing Company in LaConner, Washington. Rating #9 for this beer...
