Bottle... Poured deep, dark brown with a thick forming, khaki head. Nice retention. Nose was mild, just doughy, bready, toasted malts. This came through on the palate too with a hint of roast. Light, fizzy, and almost dry with the mouthfeel. With a British-inspired ale ester component in the finish.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Mike. Pours a cloudy dark amber colo with a medium tan head. A sweet nose of caramel and big malty fruit. An odd fruity, coconut, caramel, some mocha flavors. Ok. Not a porter. Dry.

Copper-brown, hazy, tan head. Aroma of cocoa, toffee, chocolate, some bready malt, and a little coffee. Flavor is similar, with grainy malt, baker's chocolate, a little caramel sweetness.

Bottle. Pours murky bottle brown with a large khaki head. Excellent retention and lace. Easy 4. Sweet chocolate, light roast malts and earthy hops. Light-med sweetness with a medium body, thin-oily texture, soft carbonation and a light bittersweet roasted finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle: Pours dark, cloudy, ruby red with a nice head. Aroma of caramel malts, espresso and spruce. Bitter malts, coffee and lively hops. Thick, chewy but smooth and slightly bitter. Very interesting, not a porter but mroe like a dark red hop bomb with cofee and espresso.

Draught @ Savoy Bistro Portland OR. The pint was in a bit of a state but the porter managed to shine through. Nice toasty brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the Pine Box, Seattle. Rosy, ruddy rose brown, mild foamy head. Milt toast aroma, smooth alt, oddly sweet. Funky micro. Not very good, and not much that makes me think of breakfast or porter.

12oz bottle. Pours murky reddish brown with thin off-white head. Aroma is sharply bitter hops and malts. Taste is rich caramel malts and bold hop bitterness. Quite pale for a porter... was expecting the malts to be much more roasted and dark. I guess thatís the breakfast part.

12-oz. Pours a murky dark brown with a scant loose tan rim. Big milk chocolate nose with a little bit of roast showing. Creamy medium body, almost thick, with soft carb. Big chocolatey burst on the attack, followed by roast and mild herbal hop. Soft chocolate finish. Definitely sessionable.
