UPDATED: JAN 3, 2007 A very smooth Porter. It has notes of coffee and chocolate in the nose, and a distinct overall dark brown color. Taste of chocolate and coffee with slight carbonation and a thin mouthfeel. Excellent. Would definitely drink all I could get my hands on.

Draught at pizza parlor. Perhaps this was too cold, the aroma was faint, barley aroma. Flavour was good, a chocolatey malt. Thin finish. If served at a proper temperature, this might be a good session porter.

Had a glass on tap at work and it tasted alot better than some of the batches Ive bought in the store. Best fresh. A delicious beer, Deschutess best. You can definately taste the roasty coffee and chocolate malts, this beer is a dessert.

MMMBEERLS (18) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Pours better from a bottle due to bottle conditioning, aroma is nice sweet chocolate. I have experienced from both bottle and tap. BOTTLE is better with a pine hop finish and slight roastiness. For a robust porter this is a little on the weak side for me. Balance seems just right and I see myself drinking another. Overall a decent american robust porter.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with ruby hues and an average size tan head. Very nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee, lots of chocolate and hops. Flavours roasty and chocolaty with a light bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very good!
