Another great one from the Fargo boys!!!! Keep it up. This one is worth a try and worth coming back to!!!! Bravo. Best one yet.

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.

From a growler filled at the brewery. The aroma has chocolate malt, and resin hops. The taste is quite well balanced; some sweetness, not too much bitterness. Fairly strong bodied. Quite good.
