Lynnwood, Wa, - Total Wine, 22 oz bomber. Dark,oily brown/ruby red pour, decently thick khaki colored head, a touch of lacing. Aroma has a hint of creosote, some nutty notes, a touch of chocolate. Flavor has a decent roasty presence with some bittersweet chocolate notes, a touch of black coffee, some caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel has a bit of chalkiness that I like in porters, but just a tad thin. Enjoyed this with lunch before heading up to hike near Mt. Baker. Rating #14 of 2016 vacation.

Medium brown. Nutty, chocolatey nose. Same palate, good complexity, really nice dark malt complexity. Lingering hop character, and quite bitter. Basically a black IPA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours brown with minimal tan head. Smells of a sweet dark roast coffee and chocolate. Taste follows the nose albeit with some charred wood. The body is a bit more watery than Iíd like. Itís an average porter.
