As the weather cools, my desire for dark beers heats up. IPA is so big in WA, that sometimes I have a hard time finding something interesting that isn't hoppy. One of our KZOK listeners brought be a big can of dark beer from Elk Head Brewing in Buckley. They are a smaller brewery South Sound, and I don't get to that area much, so this was a nice treat. Elk Head ESP was the name, and it is a porter. It has all the stuff you want in a porter, rich strong flavors and a nice body. This one is chocolaty and not bitter with a nice finish. It looks like Elk Head has a really cool tap room with a Rainier view. I'll have to make the trek one of these days. I like these guys!
