COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to a smooth, chocolatey, semi-roasted ale that bridges the islands of porter and stout. And if you aren’t a fan of bridges, there’s always the canoe.

Ericular (572) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Pours black with tan head that fades to a thin layer, leaving good lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and roasted coffee. Taste is very similar, with all three components making a pretty balanced appearance. Nothing glaringly bad about this at all. Walks the line between porter and stout.

Pitch Black in color with a brown foamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa and coffee. Flavor is mainly sweet roasted malts, milk chocolate, cocoa and a slight vanilla touch! Aftertaste is a bitter roasted barley flavor. Body is moderate in weight and the carbonation is moderate but it feels just right and brings out the flavor. Overall a great black ale/porter/stout and I expect great things from this brewery in the future.

On tap at bent taproom. Hoppy and warm aroma, with a bit of zest. For a stouty porter, this is a great black ale. Coffee is perfect In the beer. Really good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
