3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
rated 4/21/03 at Bill's, Cannon Beach. A dark cloudy brown, with a thin whitish head that diminished quickly. Minimal aroma, but a nice smokey flavor with the trace of licorice in the finish, and some chocolate hints through the middle.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pint – Bill’s Tavern & Brewhouse – Cannon Beach, OR
Aroma – Light dark malt aroma and that’s it.
Appearance – Dark brown/amber in color, Clear, with a thin head.
Flavor – Light dark malt flavor and then it ends with watery flavors. Not much else. This was like watered down dark brown ale.
Palate – Dry finish with a decent Mouthfeel.
Overall – I was hoping for more in the malt dept. More coffee, chocolate some umph this was not a good porter.

Dark brown. Toasty aroma. More toast on the palate with light chocolate. A bit thin in body. Very simple, standard porter. Not getting any smoke or liquorice, that’s for sure.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A wonderful porter, kind of gets away from the typical flavors and gets more into some of the baltic varieties. Slightly smokey, with a little hint of tobacco, and a great taste of licorice, that reminds me of drinking a twizzler. Rich and robust.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On Tap at Bill’s: This beer was wonderfully dark with a espresso colored head and sticky lacing. It was thicker than most porters which is probably why I liked it. It has a rich, charcoal flavor that lingers in the nostrils. Rich is the word here. I thought it was really good.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium dark brown. Biting hops, maple flavored malts and a brown-ale likeness with some vanilla. Again, a disorganized attempt... roasted nuts in the finish... but disappointing.
