Pin-up Porter, SOB (Southern Oregon Brewing)

Holy delicious chocolate porter. Any porter that pours with a thick black body and dark tan head should get you thinking. This one does it for me. That first wiff and taste was a doozy. Awesome dark legging, black abyss of a body, great mouth feel, and it keeps delivering till the end of the glass. I haven't liked a porter this much since Georgetown's 9lb porter. If you love porters, grab it when you see it on the shelf. Very much worth it.

Rogue: Double dead guy, 2008

This beer has been keeping around for a while and now seemed just a good time as ever. Poured a little cloudy but the head was still clean. I do enjoy the regular dead guy and this one tastes close but a bit more imperial. I don't think age has treated this beer well as its lacking some flavor that I was looking for. No guaranty that it was stored correctly either so that might have something to do with it. I'll see if I can grab some this weekend from rogue when I'm there. To be continued.

laurelwood hop monkey ipa

This ale poured well and had a very bubbly thick white head. It smelled good, bittered well, but lacked a solid flavor. After you swallowed it was gone. Not bad, but not good.

Ninkasi, Oatis Oatmeal Stout

Delicious. Tan head, thick pour, and a delicious chocolate body that just encompasses the palette. Best sipped with some air, this beer has more of a lingering flavor than an overpowering shock value. Well done.
