A deep brown/red color, moderately sweet and satisfying ale with a rich malty flavor derived from roasted and aromatic specialty malts, enhanced by the distinctive aroma of Pacific Northwest Cascade hops.Slightly less ‘heavy’ than traditional porter-style ale, Pick Axe Porter is surprisingly refreshing for a beer of its dark color

Darft. Pours clear dark brown with thin fizzy light brown diminishing head, spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (chocolate, coffee, roasted), light hops (grass, pine). A light sweetness and bit of bitterness; nice roasted malt flavor. Full bodied, creamy texture, and a slightly bitter finish.

Amber, aroma is nutty light coffee. Sweet front but the body does get lighter and drier. Decent cocoa and nutty malt complexity.

Decent but unexceptional porter. It’s a nice dark brown color with a thin head and good amounts of lacing. The nose is mild with a bit of chocolate and a nutty overtone. This is a rather dry beer w/ a good smack of earthy hops. It is perhaps a bit ashy in the finish but otherwise I have no major complaints.

Bottle: Poured a deep black with a whisper off white to tan colored head. Aroma is a bold roasty malt. Taste is rich bakers chocolate and roasted malts, very smooth and drinkable.

12oz bottle thanks to westcoastbeerlvr. Surprisingly light, but still dark, brown in color with a small tan head. The aroma is big on chocolate - milk chocolate - with a small amount of roast. The flavor is pretty nice with big Hershey bar notes and a hint of espresso. Some caramel as well. The mouthfeel is a bit watery, detracting a little, and carbonatiOn level is average. Overall above average for a porter, and I appreciate how far north this brewery is...NOT. No but it really is impressive.

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Clear garnet color/ thin beige head. Malted chocolate, medium roasted malt aromas. medium bodied with soft co2. Semi sweet milk chocolate, medium roasted malt flavors are lightly astringent- not bad.

On tap. Dark brown with a foamy light tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee with a very mellow herbal hop scent. Taste is more chocolate and coffee with light caramel and hop bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation and a smooth mouth feel. Pretty solid porter.
