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

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Draft at the Tugboat Brewing Co. in Portland, OR on 27 May 2013. Poured a very dark brown with a thin, but dense tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, some fruity hops and oak. Dark malt, black cherries and some bourbon-esque sweetness in the initial flavour. Finish was coffee, roasted malt and molasses.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. On the hoppier side for porters, with lightly citric hops, roasted malts, and some medium chocolate sweetness. Pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. This was this Bourbon barrel version. Colour...completely black with a thin khaki head. Nose...lightly roasty, somewhat fruity and hints of chocolate. Palate...tangy, with roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, dark chocolate cherry cordials and an oaky dryness. There’s not much Bourbon here, aside from the oak. This was pretty good, but I much prefer the regular version of this with its ashen cocoa mass character.
