On tap.A: Opaque black with a thin cappuccino head. N: Big chocolate, tasty coffee, hints of vanilla and licorice. Toasted wood. T: Sweet, bordered by espresso bitterness. M: Medium body, a bit watery. Crisp on the tongue from the carbonation. O : Decent porter, not really a standout in any sense. Clean and drinkable, not terribly complex.

Nice a dark pour with earthy, chocolate and slight wood smoke on the nose. Very grain-oriented on the palate, with a husky mouthfeel and a very long finish. Dry. Slight bitterness, plenty of malts.

Off the tap at PDX. Poured minimal head on a brown colored body.
The aroma is roasted malt with coffee and licorice showing up late.
The taste is smooth with coffee and roasted malt mostly, a touch of burnt wood with a mild bitter finish.
The texture is crisp with soft edges and moderate carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Laurelwood on Sandy, PDX, 25/05/13.
Extremely dark mahogony brown bordering light black with a thin tan head.
Nose is light roast, touch of chocolate, dark toffee.
Taste comprises roast malt, chocolate, molasses, tar.
Medium bodied, a little watery, light roast in the finish.
A drinkable porter but nothing I’d rush back to.
The mustard made with this beer that I purchased at the brewpub is superior!
