Skyview (5477) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Sampled at RBSG ’07 and shared by maniac, pours an opaque dark brown brew with a creamy beige head that dissolves slowly to a good lacing. Aroma of smoked, toasted dark malt, with scents of chocolate, coffee and some piney hops. Taste is full bodied, with flavors of caramel, chocolate and some floral hop taste later. Finish is smooth, creamy and then a floral hop aftertaste. Pretty average porter.

A thick, black beer. Aroma has some smoke. Flavor has a touch of smoke, as well as light coffee and chocolate. But overall the flavors and aromas are far too light.

Thanks to Maniac for the sample. Black with brown at edges. Light aromas of coffee and chocolate. Flavor matches. A very faint floral hop note on the finish. A bit thin.

RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting. Thanks to wheninhell for providing this for us to take along. Clear brown body with no head. Grainy burnt malt aroma. Sweet malt flavor with some light nuttiness.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 i love this beer, as black and clear as a crisp winters night, which is appropraitely enough the best time to consume this rich chocolatey delicacy. i enjoy it warmer than it is served. a rich and malty porter that is both smooth and hearty. the lacing depends on the batch and the pour. sometimes its beautiful and runs concentrically down the glass, other times ithe head fades within minutes. on tap @ cumberland brews.

On tap at Cumberland

I stopped by here for about an hour just before Christmas. It is a small place but definitely worth a visit if you are in town. Try to hit it at non peak hours to have a better chance of finding parking. This was the first of two 10 oz samples I tried and it was a great way to start.

Aroma / Appearance - A gorgeous reverse cascading head (probably due to the nitro) billowed from the bottom of the glass towards the top. As it did lt left behind a pitch black body. When done there was roughly a one finger mocha shaded head left above. The nose was a combination of smoky malt with a little sweetness.

Flavor / Palate - Caramel, smoke, malt and a light chocolate base formed a pleasing and fun mouthfeel. This was very easy to drink with the perfect amount of density and bitterness. While not the most complex beer, it would make a perfect session beer for the fall and winter months.

On tap: Pours black with a light tan head that diminishes slowly leaving nice lacing. Aroma is malty with hints of chocolate. Flavor starts sweet with a roasted dark chocolate flavor and finishes with a mild hoppy bitterness. Texture is very creamy and easy drinking. A unique and excellent porter!

Reminded me of the Avery Out of Bounds Stout I savored in Colorado. Rich aroma, nice nose.
