This medal winning porter pours dark brown with a rich tan head. A medium malt sweetness balances with the hops to produce slightly chocolatey overtones and a smooth finish. "Keeping the wheel rolling."

On tap, on nitro at the brewery, the beer is dark, chestnut brown with a small milk chocolaty head. The aroma is espresso with hints of chocolate. The medium body is creamy and flows easily over my tongue, carrying a sweet taste and roasted coffee flavors. The consistency is much lighter than you would expect from the visual, and the brew is easy to drink. It makes it that much harder to put the glass down that the coffee is enhanced by a chocolate backdrop that boosts the mildness without overwhelming you with any real sweetness. Nice beer, will have again. And again.

This beer is amazing with a nice balance of roasted flavors that don’t overpower the maltiness and hops. Drink this beer whenever I can get it. Unlike other Porters I have tasted.

Can pours dark brown with a very small tan head. Mild malty and slightly burnt nose. Nice smooth body with a moderate burnt malt and milkiness flavor. One of the better browns I’ve had.

"Easily the best of the 4 sockeyed we tried. Chocolate and caramel aroma and flavor with light roast in both. Light to medium bodied, but pretty flavorful. And not stale....yay!!!"

vulcanmeister (199) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours from a 12oz can dark cola color with a tan head. Aroma is roast coffee and dark chocolate. Mouth-feel is light with moderate carbonation. Flavor comes through with milk chocolate, nice balanced sweetness from caramel. Finish clean, light bitterness of chocolate. Very enjoyable. Would like some more please!

Nose of chocolate and dark roast coffee. Taste of dark roasted malts and a very slight touch of sweetness. I’ like this beer, but feel it’s a bit too thin. Would love to see this just turned up one notch. Pretty fantastic!

Good light brown head.. decent retention and still pretty good lacing. The nose is milk chocolate balanced by dark maltiness/almost coffee notes.. there seems to be some background caramel that binds all the aromas together.. very well done. Flavor is rich and sorta milky.. great chocolate notes combine with roasty maltiness and a background sweetness to make for a very drinkable and approachable porter... the finish is sorta lingering nuttiness.. The body is a light/medium with a sorta light carbonation that accentuated the drinkability of this one. Quaffable for sure. I will buy it again... I forgot how much I like this beer.

Draft - Dark roast, coffee and chocolate. Jet black with a creamy beige head. Roast malts and some chocolate. Very light and almost watery on the palate.
