HQT night. Draft from Brewery. Very good beer. Dark color...almost black, and extremely powerful smoke and chocolate tastes. Great beer with a meal.

A brown close to onyx she be. Getting quite close to Stout chewiness, this Porter smells of smoke, oats, earth, vanilla and chocolate. Not too sweet and nicely balanced by the bitterness. This brewery uses fine ingredients and it comes out clearly in the taste and feel of their diverse brews. Props to Rat Hole for all of the fine dark beers in an IPA heavy area of the world.

On Tap at the Bend Brew Pub Classic very dark brown. Anothe rof theirs with just a faint thin ring sticking around. Classic roast flavors, earthy and smooth. HInts of coffee. Pretty straight forward. Smooth pallate and a little campfire roast bitter at the end. Solid porter.
