Dark brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma is roasty and has notes of chocolate and coffee. Flavor is a bit bitter and ashy, with roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Not bad.

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Huge creamy tan head rides atop black nectar. Nose is cocoa and malt. Very creamy on the palate with a big bold taste of carmel, malt, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Finishes with a slight hop flavor. An upper tier Porter that can accompany a wide variety of foods, especially deli sandwiches, burgers or brats.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Roasted grain, raisins, toffee, all that kind of thing going on in there, but yet, unlike some porters it was not too syrupy. I found the thinner body to be rather refreshing and a take on porter I haven’t had often. Hints of sour too? Serving: Draft

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours dark cola color with a huge foamy khaki head. Smells of dark chocolate and espresso, with good roast and just a touch of warmth. Taste has light smokiness to go with medium roast and a sweeter, lactic finish. A little thin in the mouth, with a little too much carbonation, but these are minor nits in an otherwise solid beer.
