Hanuta06's rating

Hanuta06 (469) - Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Serving: from tap at Sound Brewery Tasting Room. Aroma: light, coffee aroma. Appearance: small, light brown, initial head that quickly disappeared. No lacing. Clear, flat, reddish brown body. Taste: lightly acidic initial flavor and finish. Long duration. Palate: medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Overall: seemed too acidic and fizzy for a porter, but Id try it again since the other beers were so good.

Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a dark brown color with a little off white head that dissipated at a decent pace. Left some stringy lace. The aroma had some sweet dark fruits blending with some brown sugar, roasty coffee beans and some milk chocolate. The flavor blended all of those previously mentioned aromas sweetly and letting the roast smoothly move in underneath. Adds some toast in the aftertaste and lets in a semi-delicate sweet to roasty finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Mild carbonation. ABV felt fine. Overall, nicely done English styled Porter that I would like to have again.

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

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2016
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.

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 (3136) - 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)

mcberko (16607) - 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.
