COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark and full-bodied, this is our interpretation of the classic English Porter style. Made with nine varieties of malt and assertively hopped, our porter is packed with flavor. Strong coffee and chocolate tones create a special brew for those advancing on the path of fine beer appreciation.

On tap at Fitchburg. Pours a very dark brown with a great nitro-looking off-white head, that retained some lacing. Aroma has chocolate and dark earth. Later, some caramel presence showed. Taste was all watery dark earth - occasionally muted bakers chocolate would show. Their highest rated brew??? Should’ve tried the pale, I guess.

Draft at the Great Dane in Downtown Madison, served in an imperial pint glass. Gorgeous near-black pour with a finger of creamy beige head. The aroma is too sweat, with tons of chocolate and cream and some vanilla that overwhelm any toast or coffee hanging out in the background. Those come more to the foreground in the flavor, which has far better balance. Light-medium bodied, with soft carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Good porter.

Pours a dark brown, with off white head. Lots of coffee and roasty notes on the nose. Coffee and chocolate on the palate, with just pinch of hops.

akoeninger (397) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2014
On tap at the Great Dane in Fitchburg. Black pour from a cask. Moderate lacing on the glass. Aroma of cocoa, roasted malt, leather. Taste is the same, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Medium body, slightly thin finish. Still a full flavored and long lingering roasted brew. A great cask porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had it tap at the Great Dane downtown location in Madison. Poured black with a whisper of a head and no lacing. Light coffee aroma and a great coffee/ beer taste.

jmcgavin12 (473) - Madison, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Pours dark brown with frothy tan head. Heavy malty aroma with hoppy notes. Balanced malty sweetness with a bit of hoppy finish makes for an overall amazing porter. Love the heavy dark cocoa nibs aroma and hint of coffee on the finish

Draft at the downtown location. Not sure if the name was affecting me but yes this was a dark, earthy porter with bitterness from dark chocolate and cold coffee. I liked it.
