The best beer on tap at seven brides. After being majorly disappointed by their Oatmeal ellie, it was nice to have this porter. This has all the right aromas of coffee, chocolate, etc.. and the taste as well. Very nice Porter

Extremely rich and bitter. Very good Porter. Definitely get it if you can find it.

Draught in a flight. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head on it. I got a very quick hint of sweetness up front on the nose that quickly went into some strong roasting notes. At the end, I got some faint bitter elements that reminded me of a Baltic porter, though they were subtle. Taste was quite bitter to me and very dry. Smooth and pleasant.

22 oz bomber from "Lifesource" Salem. I have to give this a perfect "5" for appearance. deepest, darkest mahogany brown with a gorgeous dark tan head..thats rather creamy and thick..a work of art. Great chocolaty dark coffee aromas..rosted malty goodness assaults the nasal passages! Again nice flavour profile..dakest sweet coffee essence with a semi-bitter chocolaty base that is luxuriant. Palate lets it down a bit..being smooth but a little too thin. But overall a very nice porter..certainlly the best beer this brewery has produced so far IMO.

Had this on tap at Yeasty Beasty. Very black, darker even than Black Butte Porter. Nice rocky, dark tan head. This beer has a nice roasty, almost coffee like flavor. Firmly bitter, without being too much. Bordering on a little bit of an astringent taste in the finish, but not too bad. Overall, this is a pretty decent beer.

On tap at molalla brewfest - pours pitch black with thick tan head. Nose of chocolate and coffee. Taste of bitter chocolate, smoke, and coffee. Nice creamy porter with bitter backend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I did a tasting at the brewery and bought back a bottle, its my pick of the brew from 7 brides. It has a nice strong taste, it reminds of drinking a pint of cold espresso. Definitely worth seeking this one out.

Bottle. Pours black with mediu beige fast dissipating head. Aroma is roast and chocolate. Full bodied, chocolate and coffee notes. Light finish, less than you would expect.

Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured jet black with a tan head. Pretty darn roasty with a ruin body and good malt flavor. Hazelnuts, coffee and ash flavors.

Nice, fizzy porter. Black as night with a thick tan head. Roasted, rich aromatics. The palate is dark chocolate with a contrast of creamy and bubbly texture. Long, hoppy finish.
