COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don't let its looks deceive you. Though it may resemble a porter or a stout, this is a light bodied ale with a pleasant hint of molasses. Don't be afraid of the dark.

Dark pour with a choppy aroma. Much lighter flavor than expected. Definitely getting more!

Mediocre beer. After the head dissipates it resembles a cola. Really watery taste and mouth feel. Bit of a coffee and burnt mouth aftertaste. Not a fan.

GJF (1230) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - AUG 17, 2013
On tap at Stubb’s in Ontonagon. A dark pour, a nice roasted quality to it. Just a bit too much cola to it.

camborne (655) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Toasted malt nose. More toasted malt on palate. Really thin on palate with not much else going on. Much better than their terrible pick axe beer

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2013
On tap at Bricks. Poured brown black with a thin film that was khaki. Aroma of malt and mild caramel and faint bitters. Taste was malt forward and watery with slight medicinal flavors. Palate was thin and dry.

bookman10 (626) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Pours a dark brown-black, with a bit of creamy, white head. Aroma of roasted grain and malt. Flavor was very roasty, with some chocolate and even some licorice for good measure. Good, but could be better.
