This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a strong bubbly carbonation opaque cola brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was brown malt and mild chocolate. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting roasted malt aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of roasted malt chocolate and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

crackedmachine (471) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with thin, brief, light-brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, a bit of coffee, chocolate. Flavor is similar: roasty, hints of chocolate and coffee. A bit of a quick, bitter bite in the finish. A straightforward, but excellently crafted porter.

maxwelldeux (3665) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours an extremely dark brown with a very small head. Nose has some coffee notes to it, though I don’t find the smell extremely strong. Taste is strong like a good espresso, Nice find.

Pours black with little to no head. Smells toasty and tastes similar. Lacks a sweet or robust edge to make this more interesting
