Wow, haven’t had this ina long time- forgot who great it was. Pours deep dark brown holds a thin head. Smell of sweet caramel, toasted malt, coffee and milk chocolate. Taste is big flavors of milk chocolate and coffee bitterness that fades into sweet malt- yum. Body is liter. An awesome porter. Had heavy sediment at the bottom-cool.

What else could you want from a Porter? Roasted Chocolate Malt. That settles it in my book.

Pours black like coffee, slightly viscous with a tan head. Nose of dark chocolate, malt and rye bread. Nice carbonation with dark chocolate on the palate, fuller mouthfeel and a clean finish.

Draught sample at the brewery, mid-October 2006, listed as "Disporterly Conduct", clever ha ha. Beautiful opaque walnut-to-black with a thin ring of foam and creamy tan head though it dies quickly....aroma is stunning: strong, roasty coffee and lightly burnt malts, rich underlying caramel, faint wafts of gingerbread and, with some warmth, star anise and vanilla, a lovely balance of spice and roasty porter goodness.....luscious body, nutty-oily in mouthfeel with strong touches of dried fruit (cherry, fig), medium-bodied coffee, bitter chocolate and roasty dark grains....somewhat light-bodied but there’s enough heft to support the richness...hmm this seems to be rated on the low side of this fine brewery’s wares but it was my favorite for sure.

Pours ebony into the glass with a thick creamy brown foam on top. Nose is molasses and chocolate. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is full of coffee, chocolate and chicory. Nice dry finish. An exemplary porter-true to the style and very tasty. Pairs well with pastrami and rye.

Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Ale Asylum in Madison, WI. Appearance is a murky dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is very rich, huge chocolate notes, touch of nutmeg perhaps. Taste is somewhat like butterfinger, chocolate, hazelnut, peanut, very very good. This was hands down the best of the sampler.

Aroma is coffee, malts and a hint of toffee. The flavor is coffee, caramel, toffee, mild sweetness and a mildly tart/acidic finish.
