Bottled 0,65 ltr (bottle from Oregon)
Opaque black color, small beige head. Strong chocolaty, coffee bean aroma. Medium-bodied. Chocolaty, toasted, coffee bean flavor. Sweetish finish. Low bitterness. Very tasty, especially if this is really only 5.5%.

bhensonb (10802) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle transported by Alex. Thanks! Dark brown color with golden notes and a tan head that ran off at once. Great aromas of chocolate and coffee. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is coffee, toast/burnt malt and a bit of milk chocolate. Finishes pretty dry, very smooth, with something that might be wood smoke. Recommended.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a small, off-white head over a dark brown body. Aroma of chocolate, soil and coffee. Taste is watery with notes of chocolate. Watery mouthfeel, light carbonation.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a wispy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of dry toasty, smoky dark malts and a touch of coffee. Starts with average fullness and just a hint of sweetness before a drier toasty dark malty bittersweet finish. A pretty good porter, but drier than I expected.

marcus (6359) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 13, 2009
This black ale poured with a rich tan head and a smoky aroma. There is a chocolate and coffee flavor that is tasty, but not super rich. Very drinkable.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
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!

after4ever (6088) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2010
22. Pours an opaque black with a dense and creamy dark tan head that leaves tons of lace and really hangs around for a while. Big sweet dark chocolate nose with undertones of dark fruit, pruney. Creamy medium body, soft carb. Chocolate and mild dark fruit notes on the mid-palate with a mild sweet finish. Not bad but doesn’t have too much in the way of individual identity.
