COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award winning dark ale which is an original London style, lighter in body than a stout but with the same alcohol content. Brewed with pale, crystal, chocolate and black malts to create a creamy, smooth, roasted, slightly chocolate tasting ale with a bit of hoppiness in the finish. The name comes from the fact that after brewing, the mash is given to a local farmer and there can't be anything better than spent grain from brewing for fattening up a pig.

DuffMan (7540) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 6, 2008
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.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 10, 2008
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.

nearbeer (4022) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 14, 2007
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.

Canadianlush (169) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2007
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

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - JUL 25, 2006
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.

Tmoney99 (11610) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2006
Draft. Black color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted coffee chocolate aroma. Medium body with a creamy texture. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of average duration.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - JUL 4, 2006
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.
