COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This lip-smacking dark ale is mellow and malty. The aroma is reminiscent of bittersweet dark chocolate and the caramel and roast malt flavors are exceptionally smooth. Medium bodied, with a slightly sweet edge but a dry finish.

22oz bottle pours a dark red/brown with a one finger white head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee, flavor follows suit. This was a pretty good porter but not the best ever. I wouldnít go out of my way to purchase it but worth trying.

22415brewery (371) - redmond, Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Half gallon growler fill sampled approx 30 minutes after visiting the brewery. Pours a dark brown-black, some very deep ruby-like highlights when held up to the light and a thick dark beige cap of foam. Aroma is of roast, the blackish scent of dark roasted barley, some notes of deep cocoa and no hop presence. Smooth roasted flavor with faint notes of dark cocoa powder, coffee, and a little light toffee. Bitterness balances well and is smooth. The carbonation helps clean up the finish. At 5% ABV this is one of the few sessionable Porters out there since the trend is heading toward the over 6% range.

So malty. The palate, is rich, somewhat sweet. But the malt flavor is really the big thing. It poors a dark color, with a nice brown head. The flavors become darker, roasted, nicely done.

A decent porter. A little flavorless and light, but its still better than bud

boto (1850) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 22, 2003
Draught: Pours a fairly dark brown. Aroma is a bit thin for this style. Some roastiness and chocolate to the nose. Similar tastes, although a little thin in the body. Still, it went with the crabcakes a whole lot better than a fizzy yellow one would!

This is a decent porter but nothing real special. The IPA that they make is pretty darn good, but you canít go too wrong with this porter

Bottle pours dark brown, almost black, small tannish film for a head, with so-so lacing.   Aroma of roasted malts & cocoa.   Heavily roasted malts and a slight hop bitterness on the tongue.   Minor cocoa, or unsweetened chocolate as well.   Medium body & mouthfeel.   Slightly dry on the finish, with a decent chocolately roasted malt flavor.   Not bad...
