Tap @ Lompoc’s Side Bar... Poured deep, almost black with a tan head that retained nicely. Aroma had roast, cocoa powder, and toffee. Big time malty, chocolate, vanilla and even a bit of fruits and yeast flavor before a chard, oaky finish.

Not a traditional winter ale, because its a porter! Quite good. Vanilla is present in the body. Strong notes of malt, for a smooth drink.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Draught at restaurant. Dark orange with tan head. Not reminiscent of porters I’m used to. Hoppy aroma. Creamy body with much hoppiness. This is really more like a winter ale than a porter. It’s a good winter ale.
