It’s just another Porter, but it’s brewed right. Happy New Year, Happy Last Year. Reid (2558) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2012
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer,S.Salem. $3.79
Very dark coloured porter almost black , large creamy,thick tan head.
aromas of toasted cereal,hay, slight cocoa.
MM strange liquorice root flavours, then treacle and nuts..dark coffee bitterness in the back.. i like it!
palate was just fine for style maybe even a bit thicker than usual
Going against the grain but i liked this..especially thebliquorice/treacle taste boisebeer (57) - boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Full disclaimer ahead of time. I have a special place in my heart for ninkasi.. Their support of mnt. Bike Or won me over.
Look- black as can be. Very little head and it was gone within seconds. No activity. I mean like not one bubble.
Smell not there. No activity so that didn’t bring any smell to the top.
Taste- slight bitter with a little sour and coffee. Burnt coffee. Little chile bite on it as well which I didn’t expect.
Feel. Odd feeling of spice.
Overall. Not for me. I won’t finish this 12 oz bottle dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Poured a very dark mahogany with not much of a head. Some nice malty notes in the nose including chocolate, coffee and toasted nuts. Very nice taste with a medium mouthfeel and dry finish. Overall very good Porter. Will try and re-rate later when I’m not so tired and don’t find myself at a loss for words.
