LCBS 2010. What a standout porter. Holy shit. Brown pour, tan head. Roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Flavor is so smooth. Chocolate, dark fruits, roasted malt. Helluva porter. RR just kicks ass. End of story.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2010 Another mad growler shared by Johnathan at the LCBS 10. A nice porter. Chocolate, roasted malts, and some coffee. It was just a little bitter for my taste. But in all fairness, I just had Millennium and M, so the next guy might have trouble measuring up. i would like to revisit this beer again...

Exactly what a porter should be. Roasty, chocolate and coffee all over the place. Unbelievable drinkability. Not sweet, not too dry, nicely carbonated, great mouthfeel.

Russian river porter. Thanks to alex for sharing... Pours a dark cola brown with lighter reddish edges and a thin soapy just off-white head... Big roast aroma and cocoa chocolate nose. Quite assertive... Roast and toasted malt, sweetened middle, and smooth finish. Fine drinkabity in this one. Really creamy body and smooth all around. One of the best porters that iíve had in a long time. excellent. 8/4/8/4/15

Might be one of the best beers iíve ever had, iíd quite possibly punch my mom for another drank. Without question the best porter I have ever had. Amazing balance of bitter, body, hints of roast, tons of chocolate, backnotes of coffee. simply perfect.

joeneugs (3106) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Pours a dark ruby caramel color with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malts with some berry hints and mild notes of hops.the flavor is roasted malt with a hint of dark cherry and a mildly roasted bitter finish. A pretty nice porter.

0o9i (438) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Tap @ brewery. Clear, deep Ruby/mohagony with a tan head that laces well, becomes a ring and lasts fully. Malty aroma of Bakerís chocolate, dark fruit, molasses and a bit of musk. Body is medium with light carb and a solidly dry finish. Flavor is lightly sweet, dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, molasses an a long lightly bitter aftertaste with pine and chocolate.

Sampled at Russian River in Santa Rosa. Good porter! Pours a warm brown. Nice, sessionable. Sweet, but roasty.

Black, quarter-inch head. Good lacing. Roasted malt, chocolate. Medium bodied, a little too carbonated at first, but softens with time. Pretty dry, needs a little more sweetness to balance. Still pretty enjoyable.
