bastarda (131) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2015
subtle yet strong Willamette nose: floral, spicy, a bit woody, faint reminiscence of wild strawberries, also some bitter chocolate. Taste brings out the Willamette again, this time carried on a toasty, smooth malt base, finishing more on the freshly ground and then brewed filter coffee side, also in aftertaste. A wonderful Porter!

12ounce bottle.pours a dark mahogany brown color with a massive creamy beige head. Pleasant roasted malt aroma has a hint of spicy hops and cardamom. Rich malty flavor with notes of cocoa and toasted walnuts. Nice spicy hops in mid taste offer a nice balance to the roasted malt. Very well done.

Good beer but real good considering they make a ton of rhis manufactured porter, somewhat lean, nice roast very dry and crisp. A good goto if other craft is not available.
