Sampler at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Brown color with amber highlight and nice small stable tan head. Roasted malts, bitter chocolate, liquorice, and bitter finish. Low carbonation (again: hand pump?). An excellent Porter - sweet without being sweet, but still sorta bitter and dry. beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Pours a dark brown color with an off white head. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, toast and roasted malt aroma and flavors. Medium body and carbonation with caramel and roasted malt finish. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Draught at the Russian River Brewing Co, Santa Rosa, CA.Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Dark reddish copper brown colour with a small light tan head.
Roasted malt, mild coffee, liquorice and mild medicine notes in the aroma.
Strong roasted malt, mild coffee, bitterness and chocolate in the flavour. Dry and roasted.
This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of roasted malt and light dark.chocolate. Flavor was fairly dry, almost like a London Porter, but lacking chocolate character. slowrunner77 (11891) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2014
"a basic but tastier than average porter. aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and smoke. chocolate malt and smoke in the flavor and finish. a touch thin, but not bad. quite smooth and highly drinkable. 2014-body better than remembered. Kicked the stout’s behind."

A bit of a chalky coffee aftertaste. Chocolate notes on the start. Not a stupendous porter. AirForceHops (7129) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Draft @ Russian River. Thick foamy tan head chillin on top a dark brown/black liquid. The aroma and flavor run hand-in-hand. Burnt coffee grounds, barely, dry roast with a hint of bitter chocolate to even out the sweetness. The body and texture is real nice for a standard porter. Borderline full with a slight creamy, smoothness.

Dark chocolate black 2 finger coffee cream head. Standard porter nose. Chocolate some wood and charcoal with a lot of coffee. Creamy mouthfeel. Slight mineral water qualities some 7UP. Tastes great. Chocolate and coffee. So much of it. Lots of roasted malts and finish is silky cream. yiannnos (1254) - , CYPRUS - AUG 16, 2014
Sampler @ RR. dark brown colour. Coffee, toffee, caramel, chocolate, somewhat thin Defreni (3153) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2014
Fad: taster på brewpub. Sortbrun øl med et lækkert stort skumhoved. Sødlig maltduft klassisk porter. Ingen ristede noter. Ekstrem drikbar porter. Jeg er meget imponeret af disse to mørke øl som RR ellers ikke er så kendte for at brygge. Lækker øl.
