Aroma is sweet caramel, appearance is more of a brown than a dark porter, taste is caramel/chocolate/malt. Overall a very sessionable porter that is not too intrusive.

12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served probably a little too cold in a Flying Fish pint glass. Not-quite-opaque molasses with a smallish head that diminishes to a faint coating...strangely thereís a hint of molasses in the nose too, which is mostly dark-roasty and not terrible pronounced; a little cinnamon Iím finding as well - nice but itís a struggle to find it...body is a bit sweeter than many porters, but not excessively so, and has plenty of nice roastiness, though thereís an odd saccharine quality that asserts itself a bit with more warmth...thin, somewhat watery mouthfeel, average carbonation. Not terrible, but Door County would probably be better off concentrating on the Belgian styles if my experience is any indication.

Light umber color. Smallish, diminishing head. Only hints of caramel and toasted malt. Light whiff of sweet/sour as well. Flavors of dark toasted to light roasted malts. Flavors are a surprise after the scents, or at least not as bad as I expected. Still a touch of sour, or more lactic, but a bit more malt and hints of cacao and dark malt. 12/14

Solid porter -- a little chocolaty, a little sweet and a little dry. Found on tap at a nice bowling alley in Howards Grove, WI. Come for the beer, stay for the 2016 state seniors bowling tournament.

Pours a ruby brown with a hefty tan head. Crisp and malty with well balanced sweetness. Clean finish. Nice and solid porter! Love the name. ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finally we come back to earth with a watery, but still tasty, porter. Decent chocolate and coffee taste with a clean finish.

Porter that is more on the malty side. Not much roasted malt notes and some slight chocolate flavors. Pours almost brown in color had at Geneva national.

Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a dark brown with a mahogany hue under brighter lights, itís got a respectable and well maintained head.

The aroma is really toasty, a bit nutty, & certainly a touch ashy. Not really off putting, not really especially inviting either.

The flavor is a little sweet, itís got some caramel and apple like fruity notes with a nice bit nuttiness and a respectable toasty malt and roast character. Itís got a pleasant light bitterness and a little bit of leafy hoppiness, yeah... this is tasty enough.

Seems like there are a few "brown ales" in my neck of the woods that I think tip the scales into Porter category... this one does the exact opposite.

OK porter. Dark sweet nose. Smooth chocolate flavor with some coffee and roasted nuts.
