Pours a transparent mahogany with ruby hues and a spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet, doughy caramel malts with a touch of milk chocolate character. Body starts a little thinner and effervescent with some mild roasty and chocolatey malts before a drier, coffee finish. Finishes smooth and bittersweet with some lingering roasted maltiness.

"i was hoping northern Nevada would be represented better than this, especially being that their Angel Creek Amber is so good...but this beer is weak & boring, even if it were classified as a brown. worst porter i’ve ever had."

Bottle in Bellevue, ID
Dark black color with light head and no lacing. Nose of robust roast and light coffee, vanilla. The flavor is fairly 2 dimensional, roast and sharp carbonation but has some smoothness to it. Finishes non-creamy and a bit bitter but overall tasty. Nice find!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. I thought that this was an excellent porter. The body was dark brown with some garnet at the edges. A light brown colored head. The aroma was strong cocoa with some light coffee. There were also some roasted peanuts. The taste was cocoa with some light coffee. The body had low carbonation and that helped to make this easy to drink. Very nicely done.
