Dry, opaque, malty good....You can really taste the ROASTED malt, and I mean ROASTED - really well made. Nice subtle chocolate undertones, great finsih and mouthfeel, true to the style - highly recommended.

Pours a beautiful dark brown with 2 inch tan head formation. The pouring suggests a medium body, which is later confirmed. The head is persistent and settles in at 1.5 inches a flat, creamy top and plethora of micro-bubbles intermingled with larger cavities up to 1/8th inch. As you drink this ale the Belgian lace is well formed and decorative. The nose provides deep roasted notes. Hops are not evident. The porter has a medium body with a light cream texture. The suggestive chocolate and coffee notes join the maltyness, making the ale very nicely balanced. Carbonation is pleasant. The alcohol is moderate and not noticeable on the palate. Combined with delicious lingering this porter definitely invites repeat tastes. Another moreish ale! Light enough to be a restorative and a refresher, yet full enough of flavor to satisfy most any palate.

Oh yeah. This is as serious as it gets. Dark as night with a glorious head that lingers. Smells of roasted coffee bean and malted cocoa. Full nectar with ample effers. This brew is dry as a bone and very European with a moderate roast component. The finish is bittered with a perfect hop tingling. Just beautiful!

This could be the best Porter I have had so far. We’ll see what the statistics reveal, but right now, there is nothing I would rather be drinking.

12 ounce bottle that pours dark brown with a tan head. Hints of chocolate and coffee. Smooth and creamy with a mild finish. Enjoyable.

Aroma is lighter but smoky oaky. A little earthy. A little campfire. Looks ok. A little light on the pour. Look darker brown in the glass. This really is the most porter like beer I think I’ve ever had.... Lighter but has a nice smoky and metallic and oak note. The key here is the taste is sharp and finishes quickly rather than having a lingering grossness. Palate is smooth. Lighter but still flavorful. This is why I love beer and this is why I’m sad I moved from michigan. This beer is so on point.... Perfect for the style. Lighter but with great flavors. The epitome of what a porter should be.
