3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2015 [Bottle] Pours dark brown with a nice tan head that lingers well. Chocolate, roasted malt, some mild fruity (raspberry) acidity, and lightly lingering char. Really solid. Aroma is okay; chocolate, caramel, slight fruitiness again, and roasted malt. Quite thin, long finish. Overall, very nice--particularly the taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12 ounce can. The aroma has a slight acidity to it, cocoa, toasted malts, light caramel. The flavor is similar, the acidity is really off putting.

Can. Thanks andrewje41! Pours a very dark brown color with a smallish tan head on there. Nose is pretty dominant on the roasting, with subtle hints of chocolate and smoking. Taste is a bit sweet up top, but with a roasty pleasantly burnt bitterness underneath. Nice brew.

12 oz can poured. Finally a North Dakota beer, and a pretty good one too. Pours a nice, dark cola black with a fizzy tan head. Chocolate, and dark fruit, roasted overall aroma. Flavor matches closely. A little coffee as well, but overpowered by the surprise dark fruit flavor here. Has a mild tartness in the late finish. Finishes also on an oaky flavor, which is nice. High carb throughout. Very nice porter. Glad I finally found one from here. Good beer.
