3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Huge pillowy sandy head...wondering if this is another Porter on the verge of breaking down.   Soft roasty nose.   Like the Heathen before this, a soft acrid roastiness is on the tongue.   A bit more of a hop bite in this one, but still it seems a bit pedestrian.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   A little chocolate presense tho, which makes it a bit better.   Middle of the road example...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle retrieved from Oregon.
Pours clear but very dark brown, looking nearly black and opaque in the pint glass. A decent size beige head is semi-durable and leaves sheets of lacing upon tilting of the glass.
Loads of very dark roasted grain flavor with relatively light notes of burnt toast and char. Enough hops to add flavor and complexity while keeping this markedly more bitter than sweet.
O: a bold, hoppy porter.

Mazama Pyroclastic Porter - bomber from Taniguchi shared by Mick. Pouring a deep reddish black with a tan head. The nose is strong cacao powder giving it a strong chocolate aroma. The taste is roasted barley, acrid & chocolatey. Solid but it doesn’t really stick out from the heard...
