COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust Porter. Balance and restraint define this beer. It has a strong upfront coffee aroma, with a dark cocoa finish. Brewed with Oregon hops to balance the assertive roastiness. It drinks like a freshly brewed iced mocha; flawless and smooth.

Mazama Brewery, Draft: DRY! Very dry. I liked it, it didn’t have overpowering sweet aftertaste like many porters have. Perfect carbonation and hop/malt balance. Not to thick...not too watery. This is good porter, the best I found in Corvallis. I would put up against a blind tasting of Deschutes Porter any day.

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...

Pours a reddish brown appearance with a lasting dark brown head. Smells quite nice. Dry, oaty/grainy nose with a moderate amount of chocolate and coffee. Some vanilla notes as well. Roasty and dry flavor. A bit of nuttiness. Low sweetness. Moderate bitterness. Pretty tasty.

IndianaRed (2945) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 26, 2014
On Tap at PreFunk, Boise. Clear dark brown with a small thin creamy light tan head. Plenty of light roast and some coffee in the aroma. Standard rostiness in the flavor, some coffee, not a lot and missing that sour tag that a lot of porters have. Smooth and softly carbonated. Very pleasant.

Nice dark, roasty, chocolaty, smooth porter. Dark, opaque brown with small beige creamy head. Aroma is equal parts coffee, chocolate and burnt toast. Taste is mild coffee bitterness up front, then some semi-sweet chocolate. Dry bitter finish.
