This brown ale pours with a dark brown body with red tinting with little head or lacing. The aroma and flavor are slightly sweet, nutty and full of roasty notes, coffee and a litte cream. Medium to full bodied and smooth.

Flaske: Sortbrun klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er maltet med en del sødlig kaffe. Smagen er kaffepræget sød. God porter der bestemt bliver bedre af at blive drukket i bjørneland.

Strong coffee smell, body is a bit watery to my liking. Bland finish. Drinkable, but many other porters I like much better.

12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Lodgepole general store in Sequoia National Park. The pour is brown with a small khaki head. The aroma is big not brown and roast. The taste is the nut brown and roast of the nose, clean and fresh flavors. The palate is medium bodied with a lingering mineral, some pine and the residual nut.

On tap at Base Camp Pizza. Pours dark, thin head. Aroma and flavor of roasted malt, cocoa, and nutty. Not bad, the only complaint I have is the palate is a bit thin.
