Aroma is sweet, malty, hints of coffee and vanilla. Appearance is dark brown, creamy darkish brown head. The flavor is lighter than expected, but tastes of sweet malts and a light coffee bitterness. The mouthfeel is super malty, just the way I like it. Overall, it is solid. Reminds me of Edmund Fitzgerald. I would buy it again.

Very good Porter. It feels mellow and is an easy drinker at noon but it’s still jam packed with flavor

arminjewell (9210) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of big roast, coffee, chocolate notes, some ash into a bit of earth, spicy notes with a hint of dark fruit and a slight anise note. Taste was a mix of cocoa, roast, coffee into a slight smokey, ashy note, slight dark fruit, finishing bitter, roasted.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Tap @ Kuhnhenn:Jet black & silky pour with a small, khaki colored head perched on top for a short while. Huge roasted aroma with plentiful malts, char, & light smoke. Little bit of dried cocoa dust & a hint of ash. Mouth feel is a little thinner than expected, but still has some creaminess to it. Heavy roast on the palate as well with a modest campfire-like char & ashy tone. Some balancing sweet flavors come out; mild baker’s chocolate, prune, & a hint of red grape. A hint of toasted nuttiness lingers in the finish with more notes of heavily roasted dark malt. Don’t get many hops out of this one, but they aren’t necessarily missed. Good porter.
