3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 Re-rate: on tap in Whitefish, and from the bottle at home. Chocolatey with roasty undertones, a tad thin. Decent enough, but not as good as I remember. ORIGINAL RATING (2008): On tap at the clubhouse in Meadowlake. Dark brown, aromas of chocolate and clay. Fudgey, a litle roasty, smooth mouthfeel, medium bitter finish. Really delicious.

On draft in Billings. How can you see a name like this and not try it? Nothing really to say that isn’t in the "classic" porter description. For what it’s worth, it is a decent beer...fairly roasty, drinkable, and satisfying.

Draft at Legends, Great Falls. Opaque with a small head that lasts pretty well. Aroma is earthy molasses. Flavor is mostly the same with some slight smoke, coffee and chocolate. Palate is light-medium and watery.

On Tap in Great Falls, Montana. I thought it was well done if simple. Very dark in color but could have used more carbonation. Malty with clear hints of almonds and chocolate. Very nice balance and went down well.

I like this beer, but not as much as Harvest Moon Nut Brown. It tastes good, like a pig’s ass with a hint of smegma. mmmmmmmm good

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Bale of Hay Virginia City. Not much notes on this one but it was a good, clean, creamy smooth, tasty porter that was not too sweet. Into medium bodied. I wanted to get another the next day but the 30 beers in the microbrew fest kept me away.

Draft at bert and Ernie in Great Falls.
Pours dark brown with a nice head. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate, flavors of coiffee, chocolate and more malts, hardly any hops noticeable.
Perhaps a tad too thin but still a nice beer.
