4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Laurelwood Publick House in Portland, OR. 5 ounce sample. Very roasted, assertive, chocolate and coffee-like nose. Plenty of coffee present. Very pleasant aroma. Opaque black color with a brown/tan frothy head with gorgeous lacing. Roasted, slightly bitter hoppy start, turning very rich and coffee-like later on. Some sweet chocolates are also present, which create a chocolate covered coffee bean flavor. One of the best beers I’ve had on this trip to the PNW.
