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.

Great beer from my latest stop at Booze Bros. in Reno NV. Always nice to find something that brewed in that state, as I wind up going there 4-5 times a year. The last two beers I had from Ruby Mountain were just a bit above average so this was a huge leap in terms of enjoyment.

The beer pours out a dark brown, nearly black liquid with some red poking thru at the edges. A nice big frothy head greeted me at the pour and the lacing was in fine form. The aroma had some dark chocolate/cocoa thing going on, a bit of walnut oil, and a smidge of vanilla. The flavor carried the chocolate in the aroma over to the taste buds, as it was quite chocolate forward. Some coffee, a bit nutty, with a bit of earthiness showing up towards the backend of things (perhaps the hops?). The best beer brewed from Nevada by far. Very nice.

Bottle. This is about as fine an example of a Brown Porter as we can expect on this continent. It has a deep brown color and a fine head. The nose is chocolate malt coupled with inviting British floral hops. The flavour follows through perfectly and if anything the complexity is enhanced by some additional caramel and dark malts but it does not loose its floral hop backdrop. I tasted this side by side with Sierra Nevada Porter and this one dropped Sierra Nevada off the table. Much more complex and long lasting. A finely crafted beer - well worth seeking out.

Smells almost like a smoked porter. Reddish brown with little head. Flavoring is more reminiscent of a nut brown ale than a porter - not that sweet, but has some tanginess. The slight dryness in the finish is unfortunate.

Dark ruby color with a thin off-white head. Roasty, cocoa and osme brown sugar in the aroma. Light roast, some vanilla, a little coffee. A pretty solid porter.

Draft pour dark brown. Nose light roast, coffee some sweet malt. Taste light roast, similar to nose. Light bitter from mid pale to end. Light mouth and a little watery, but not to bad.
