Great Beer! Tried it for the first time last night at Venti’s in Salem, OR. Looks like a dark porter, but comes across as a light one.

Really awesome. Such a nice blend of creamy, smooth, rich, balanced malt/hop and mouthfeel, with a kiss of smoke. Overall really well made and I like the lil smoke and it doesnt ruin the palate pleasure. Good job

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the brewery tap, pours a nice black with brown edges. Head is thick and is darker than most porters. Roasted nose, coffee, and chocolate make a good combination with some hop aroma noticeable. Big dry roasted flavor, black malts, and chocolate. Good beer.

650ml bottle poured almost black in color with a big beige head and some thin lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate with a hint of coffee. Taste is roasted malty sweetness and chocolate and coffee with a mild hop bitterness. A nice porter that is worth a try.
