12 oz can poured into a frosted pint glass. A delicious and classic Porter. Just perfect on this first seemingly chilly day of Autumn. Will be drinking more of these this Winter. Cheers! JStax (6999) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2017

Picked this up with five others at Whole Foods on a recent work rip to Boise and later grabbing five more at Bier:Thirty. Had reviewed two others from Sockeye back in 2013 and enjoyed them both, giving the original Dagger Falls a 4.04 and a special cranberry kolsch at 4.13. Also liked the Mango Dagger Falls (3.81) and Winterfest (3.88), which I also picked up on the trip.
Poured a dark brown color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki frothy head that thinned out quickly. A few bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good sporadic lacing. Very good retention. (Sight - 3.75)
Smelled big roasty malts in espresso, dark chocolate, anise, semi-char wood, toast, roasted barley, dark cocoa powder and toasted toffee. (Smell - 3.75)
Tasted a bit better than the nose, almost like a dark milk stout. Liked it. Got dark milk chocolate, espresso, cocoa nibs, chocolate syrup, roasty malts, toast, woody anise, hints of char wood and sweetly toasted toffee. (Taste - 4.25)
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, roasty finish. (Feel - 4.00)
Really liked this one. Would like to have some more. (Overall - 4.00)

Shared 12 oz. cans poured to snifters showing a dark brown color with some ruby highlighting, a presentable layer of brownish tan head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was malty, with a hint of freezer burn, roasted, cocoa, and moderate sweetness. A touch less than medium bodied, with fair carbonation, and texture that became a little watery and thinned a bit, the taste was similar notes as the aroma’s, less the burn, moderate roasted & earthy bitterness and some dryness to the finish. A pleasant, light Porter. Hanuta06 (469) - Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2016
