I love porters. This one is right where I like it. Not over the top but still dark and slightly rich. Toasty malt flavor with very light taste of hops.

Draft pour pint at The Red Hot. Really thought Id spend the majority of the day enjoying the different Tacoma breweries, but when my freaking softball team wont lose, it cuts deep in my beer time. Lucky for me, I can still turn to a classic favorite stop of mine to enjoy the local brew options. A fitting name to this beer. A crusher porter for sure. When done correctly, I believe a porter is the most crushable beer style. Dark brown pour with a slight glow. Patchy beige cream head. Initial robust malt.aroma, with a flavor that leads to a more creamy milk chocolate. Not a super unique porter by any means, but well executed and clearly meet their intentions. Overall, I loved it.a

Bottle:   Dark ruby, roasted malt nose, moderate tan head, little lacing.   Dry cocoa and roasted malts on the tongue.   A little hop bitterness.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Lingering roasted malts, cocoa, and by now some dark chocolate.   Seems like a fairly solid example.

snoworsummer (4979) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear burgundy brown with a thin, beige head. Tastes like burnt malt, smokey wood, nutty, earthy, and light ash. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like burnt malt, ashy wood, dark coffee, and earth.

Capa (2861) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Deep brown with a creamy, light tan head. Aroma is chocolate, light coffee, toasted biscuit, light caramel, Very inviting. Medium, oily bodied. Flavor comes across more roasted than the aroma lets on. Chocolate, toast, some light coffee, a bit of dark fruits. Has a slightly tangy, earthy finish. A very well thought out and executed porter. Would be happy to have this again and again. (#2500)

Rating #1342. Sampled this out to staff and colleagues at Parkland Liquor in Stony Plain 02.12.2014. Pours a bubbly brown with a weak white cap, little retention. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, earth. Palate is mild cocoa, espresso - sweetness curbed by lovely earth bitterness pronounced. Great porter.

mcberko (15011) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2015
On tap at Sound, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted malts that dominate. Flavour is bland, with toasted malt and bready notes. Pretty bland and weak, but no off-notes. Okay.

Draught at Nakanoshima. A solid porter, quite rich and chocolatey with smokey and herbal notes, hints of raisin, nutty dry finish. Good stuff.

Bottle. shared with Parksy and others at the lake, May long weekend. Dark brown, copper highlights, lasting tan head. Bitter chocolate, roast, light fruit acids in the finish. We had a few porters this weekend, not all good, but this one was pretty solid.
