COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our porter is brewed using Pale 2 Row malt with chocolate and aromatic Munich malt to give it some sweet roasted malt notes and flavor. We balanced the malt flavor and aroma with East Kent Golding and Columbus hops additions.

MaltOne (231) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2012 Pours opaque dark brown. Ample head, coffe tinged cream in color, subsides to a lingering lace cap. Coffee with a hint of toffee in the aroma. Clean porter style in taste. Nicely balanced, not too dry, not too toasty, not too bitter - refreshing. Pallette, again clean, medium body, with a faint lingering hop note. Overall, a very drinkable, well crafted. Refreshing and clean (which is odd for a porter). Update - on tap at 3-Lions - pleasant enough, but light and watery for a porter.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Tap at Big Bay. Caramel brown body. Beige head. A pretty boring, sugary offering. While there aren’t any striking off flavors, the whole thing is pretty bland, boring, cheap. Thin schwarz feel.
