Extremely malt forward roasted, coffee and chocolate nose. Palate is superb, but slightly fizzier than expected for a dark porter. adrianehendee (56) - - OCT 18, 2016
Had on tap at brew pub in Bend. Very dark brown but not black. Smells like coffee. Fairly thick. Tastes strong but very little aftertaste. Good for camping. Marheb (6238) - MontrÃ©al, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 4, 2016
(En fût à Venti and Basement Bar): Grillé, rôti, assez mince avec une finale torréfiée minutieusement aiguisée. chinchill (5342) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2016
On tap at the brewery’s brewpub in Bend. Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Look: clear dark mahogany body, nearly opaque, with a decent head but minimal lacing.
Aroma Dark roasted grain smells with a trace of sweet toffee.
Flavor: plenty of dark roasted grain flavor. Moderately bitter.
Had on draft at the brewery. There is a large roasted malt note that seems out of place in a porter. Dry and ashy, chocolate, soft caramel malt.
