A dark ale for all occasions. A blend of dark malt gives this beer flavors of coffee and chocolate with some smokey roasted notes.

hopiness and roastiness is upfront - chocolate and coffe taste is blended with maple bittersweetness and caramel. somewhat of a thin body, but very smooth tasting

A good porter, dark and good body with appropriate carbonation. Good, mostly chocolate, maltings with a balanced hopping. A light burnt aroma but not overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love porter beer and this is a porter thru and thru. The last thing you’ll drink is the head and the first thing you’ll remember when you feel in the mood for the style is this. The taste is smooth and robust. The only thing good about living in the midwest is our great beer; the finest in America.

Mmm. Good smooth porter. Aroma of caramel and chocolate. Taste is of the same, a little bitter. Not much of a finish, but a thick beer that goes down well after a meal.

Pours very dark brown-black with very little tan head. Smells like Nesquick powder! Not a ton of flavor jumps out at me....there’s obviously some roastiness/chocolate....but not a lot. Not as thick as I thought it would be.

Reserved aroma, but good, standard, fresh, roasty scent. Dark, dark brown with a perfect brown head. Dry, earthy, fresh rained on forest bark in initial flavor. On the palate, a bit too dry. Awesome, if very standard.

The color is black with a lasting head and excellent lacing. I smells and tastes a little like coffee. It had a nice smooth finish.

Bottled on 8-24-06. Notes from a 1-29-07 rating. A good porter, not as complex as Sierry Nevada’s. The first taste is sweet roasted/nutty/caramel malts. The finish is of mild coffee. The body is a little on the thin side, I was hopeing for a little fuller mouthfeel.
