3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a very strong aroma of vanilla, with some almond and coconut(?). Taste is nutty, but not in a good way. It’s honestly a bit offsetting. Long finish, almost oily, with some definite bitterness. Not a huge fan.

For a Porter lover, this beer has everything you need. It has a nice, dark colored head and a smooth finish. It’s perfect for a Wisconsin winter night in.

Aroma is of roasted barley, nuts, and a wee bit of hops. It goes down super clean with a bit of sweetness and finishes with some smoke. Great offering from Tom!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
8/12/10. 12oz bottle with big thanks to cbfobes! A rich brown pour that shines with reds when held the light. A fluffy tan head floats on top and remains as a ring and skin for quite awhile. The aroma is muted chocolate, toasted bread, and a definite fruity wine quality. The flavor is fruitier up front, again with hints of chocolate, and lingers with bitter roasted malts and just barely a hint of coffee.

want list bottle from dakine on 5/31/10.
orange tinted porter brown capped by a small tan head.
it smells like true creme fraiche... along with coffee, chocolate, wet wood, roast, peppery hops and butterscotch (in a good way).
the flavor is the same... a little spicy and mildly bitter on the finish.
medium body with sharp carbonation. 6/3/6/3/14/3.2
