Powerhouse does a very nice job at delivering quality beer from a small one location brew pub. I have sampled every offering they have made over the years and this is the one brew I keep coming back to. It’s like a comfortable pair jeans that just feels right when you put them on.

Meh. Full flavor but was not as dark as I was hoping. Had a well bodied coffee flavor BillKismet (4139) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Night blackness in the glass with a feint chocolate head. Sharply roasted coffee presence immediately infiltrates the olfactory consciousness. Robust roast barley and black patent body. Smoke. Anise and charcoal. A complex roasty porter that one would hope for when a brew calls itself a roasted porter. This one delivers.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a thin off-white head. Has an intense coffee aroma. A big roasted coffee flavor with an interesting coconut finish. Lots of milky mocha coffee flavors linger. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2009

Draft at the brewpub. Black. Opaque. Headless, laceless. Still. Roasty and chocolatey nose. Light, watery body. Big roasty, chocolatey mid-palate with some definite ash notes in there. Needs more body but tastes quite good. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Roasted aroma of coffee with a light sweetness. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Flavor is dominated by roasted malt and coffee. A moderated sweetness comes and goes. Pretty robust and roasty. Pretty good if you like coffee.
