Eel River purports to be America's first ever certified organic brewery. I guess that means they planted brewery seeds and then layered on manure and compost and hash oil until a mature functioning brewery sprouted up and started churning out beer for hippies. Whatever the case this is a passable porter, nothing special but nothing I'd go out of my way for either. Smells of chocolate and coffee but tastes a bit "burnt" with a weak hop finish. If I was a dirty tree-hugger I'd consider this a decent finish to a long day of protesting and using the word "man".
