Strangely, there is almost no aroma to this beer! The color is really pleasing, an almost stout look, and froths similarly. It has a very hearty substantial flavor, followed by a somewhat sweet aftertaste.

Draft pour pint at TD@TP. VJ. EK. All that. Dark amber pour to plastic, with a laying foam head. Nutty, heavy malt aroma and flavor. Everything an amber should be. This was quite nice. Nutty linger. Pretty good.

Tap. Pours a clear amber brown body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is toasty and lightly roasty malt with a little light floral hops. The flavor is dry and toasty with just the lightest hint of roast and coffee. A little sweetness on the finish with a touch of chocolate. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation, finishes a bit watery with some grainy malt. Not so bad, but a bit thin overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at College Inn. Pours light brown / dark amber with khaki head. Malt-driven nose - nutty, caramel, some roast. Taste: pleasant and drinkable. Biscuit, caramel, toast; on the sweet side, but with a mildly roasty finish. Medium- body, smooth texture. Overall: remarkably solid offering from a local brewery I almost never drink. New year’s resolution: drink more of the locals. In fact, remind me of this next year -- 2014-2015 academic year, I will rate at least one beer from every seattle brewer in the RB database.

Clear dark dark amber under a thin light beige tight creamy head. Nose of dark nutty sweet malty toffee with a biscotti undertone. Big nutty toffee flavor with a caramel amber backbone with a slight booziness. Not a whole lot of hops, but it doesn’t need it.

Draught. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is very toasty and slightly roasty to me. Taste, on the other hand, is roastier than anything else, and ends up tasting like a slightly carbonated chilled coffee. Fairly pleasant drink.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had off tap at lindas in Cap hill, which I’ve been told I have to go to. Chocolate and malt. Not quite a porter, but nice roasted malt presence. Offputting finish, which is kind of mop water like. Body is full initial and in the middle but the finish is a little weak. I prob wouldn’t reach for it again.

A somewhat smoky dark ale. Taste of a porter, but light bodied with a little coffee aromaticity. Floral hops and earthy flavours. Dark roasted with a caramel-nut presence. Easy drinking and clean. Very delicious.
