Sweet smell and beige head. Thereís definitely a caramel and coffee taste at first the it goes in the nutty/vanilla direction in the aftertaste. Tastes lighter than it looks. Not to say itís light, the color is just a very dark brown. Would be great in cold settings.

Bottle in Cannon Beach. This was a surprisingly good porter. I expected it to be gimmicky but was pleasantly surprised.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Pour is pitch black in appearance with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Big roast, dark chocolate, grass, earthy hops, vanilla, somewhat smoky and peaty aroma, Taste is graham crackers, ashy, smoky, cocoa nibs, coffee, earthy, and grassy with a big roasted finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Great espresso, chocolate, and roasty notes, although very smoky at times; still very well-balanced and fairly easy drinking. Solid porter, cheer!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Pacific Liquor: Appeared as a dark brown porter with a thin development of foam on top. Aroma is mild with a smell of lightly toasted malts with hints of chocolate and a faint background of soap. The drink is bland with a minimal amount of slightly roasted malts that barely give off enough flavors to grab my attention. Finish taste a little lactic or creamy. Boring porter to say the least.
