August 2012. 22 oz. bottle. Very dark brown with a tan head. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, spice and dark fruit aromas. I did not really detect the smoke, but a very good porter.

22 oz. from Chuckís @ $4.99. Smell bad! Like old gym socks. Comes out in the taste as well. sharp acidity. Possibly oxidized? Maybe I got a bad one...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, nearly black, moderate to large foamy beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Sweet
roasted malts on the nose.   Smells inviting.   Oh wow!   Smooth roastiness on the tongue, semi-sweet, a
litle lactose sweetness, and a great body.   This is silky smooth and delicious.   This one I am surprised by
as many seem to be acrid and too thin.   This has a great malt base, smooth malts to back up the soft hop
bitterness.   Very flavorful.   This might be one of my new favorite Porters from Oregon.   Smidgen of
dark chocolate too.   This one is very very nice.   Recommended!

Dark brown color with tan sheen. Dark chocolate, black licorice, tobacco aromas. Medium body with soft co2. Lightly sweet herbal black licorice flavor with dark chocolate, medium roast malt, pale malt, nicely bitter finish--good.

Massive porter more like a stout. Big, bold coffee/chocolate flavor without the sweet malty heaviness.
