Full bodied? No. A nice chocolate light roasted porter with a light body. Easy to drink and well blended.

Looks pretty good - dark brown, with a soapy tan head - medium bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel - semi-sweet vanilla and roasted malt give way to a smoky, slightly ashy finish - the ashy character gets really strong as it warms, and kind of takes over the beer - meh.

Brown with medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, sweet malts and chocolate. Taste is more of the same a little dry, decent but not out of this world porter.

Pours a medium brown color with a medium mocha head that leaves sticky lacing. Aroma is slight......dark malts, with a touch of chocolate and coffee. Taste is about the same. Very easy drinking but nothing that sets it apart or defines the style in any special way.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the brewpub in Delafield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear cola brown brew with a creamy light tan head that slowly dissipates to a fine film and light tan ring. Aroma of roasted dark caramel malt, some flowery hops, a touch of chocolate and some coffee character. Taste is medium bodied, mild carbonation with flavors of roasted caramel malt, light chocolate and coffee character with flowery hops, and a little ice tea. Finish is semi-dry with light aftertaste of iced tea, chocolate and some flowery hops. A little light in body compared to most other porters I’ve tried but still enjoyable.

Growler from jkugel. Pours a dark brown with a hint of red. Nice two finger head. Decent lacing. Aroma light, bit of spicey hops and a bit of chocolate. Flavor decent chocolate with a god spicey hop. Mouthfeel light and smooth dry. Finishes with a bit of a hoppy flavor and some alcohol. A decent example of a porter.

On tap at Delafield Brewhaus. Poured very deep brown with a 2" creamy tan head.. good lookin’ beer! The aroma picked up toasted nutty notes, chocolate, and coffee.. quite dry and sweet overall. The flavor had dry sweeter chocolates, a little molasses, and dark fruits.. a dry-roasted coffee bitterness worked well in accenting the edges.. the tasty finish was quite bitter. Grainy on the palate with the body on the lighter side.. could’ve used a bit more carbonation.. kind of fell off the finish. Very solid overall.
