3fourths' rating

3fourths (7879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Dark brown body with a small off-white head. Moderately roast-forward malty aroma, your typical chocolate / coffee ground / cola with touches of black plum and roast. Maaaaybe some nuttiness from the walnuts but could just as easily be from the malt. Peppercorn phenols and silty / pasty yeast texture. Medium body, medium to low sweetness, moderately bitter for the body. Pretty much what I expected from the house yeast strain fermenting a porter grain bill: malty and yeasty but without a lot of depth.

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark brown color, almost black, with creamy head. Mild aroma of roasted malts. smooth and dry mouthfeel, mild roasted malt flavor, light minty touch, correct bitterness, dry final, also a bit weak; no walnuts, almost no chocolate malt.
Decent beer, but not responding to expectations, and can’t really see the direction here.

CapFlu (4476) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2014
Thin beige head and deep brown body. Nutty aroma. Flavour is rather... Uh... "Common". Fairly cookie cutter nut brown.

jredmond (5250) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Draft at proletariat with Andy. Pours a black body with thin white lacing. Aroma is light roast. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of roast and fresh hop. A strong rounded malt character coming through in the finish somewhat dulls the palate.

Reid (1855) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Pint from a growler filled at "b2 Taphouse" in Salem. I think $13. Beer is a darker brown colour with a large thick and frothy tan head..that sticks around! Nice aromas of nuts,Belgian style yeasts,cherries and toasted malt. Again nice fruity yeasty Belgian accents in the taste..touch of nuts and some sweet black cherry..semi bitter coffee malts in the end Good mouth feel substantial but not thick and cloying. Overall likable beer here a good hybrid.

ericdevin (669) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Draft at brewery, Portland. Pours a very dark color, slight amount of tan head. Yeasty nuttiness to the nose, maybe some chocolate notes as well. Body light on tongue, retains crisp easy drinking body of English style porters, with perhaps a bit more funk in the back end. Fine, but not the best the brewery can do.

raphael (873) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Calling it a porter almost takes the mystery out of it. almost. there’s a softness to the darkness, and es the sour as the bitter of walnuts. just a percent of roasted malt. no weight, only crisp.

Theydon_Bois (7938) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2013
Extremely dark mahogony brown with a thin beige head that dissipates to the edge and leaves light spotting. Nose is dark malt, nutty tones, sugars, dark fruits. Taste comprises dark malts, dark toffee, brown sugar, walnut, biscuit bite. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweetish finish. Ok drinkable affair if a little over sweet.

pdx77 (1239) - Oregon, USA - APR 13, 2013
On draught at The Commons. Dark brown with tan head. Malt and yeast aroma. Hints of nuttiness and Belgian yeast enhance familiar porter flavors. Finishes with a slight fizziness.
