COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a smooth, full-bodied beer. A rich "nuts & berries" flavor followed by a coffee-like finish. Based on the traditional English Porter beers ofthe late 1800ís. Originally created for Irish immigrants working the shipping docks in England. They were a hard working lot who wanted a "stout" style brew with more alcohol content to drink during their all too short lunch breaks.

12 oz bottle. Earthy, nutty aroma, not unpleasant. Had a slight tan head. Medium-to-thin mouthfeel. Robust malted flavor, with a very bitter nutty aftertaste. A good porter, one of the earthier ones Iíve had.

Crushed with Jakebra
Pours a dark brown with reddish hues when held up to light. The head is medium sized and leaves some lacing on the glass.

Man, the aroma is really sweet... lots of molasses & raisin. Itís got some roastiness, but geeze itís really raisiny.

The flavor is tart fruit, like to the point of sour. Itís nutty & has some coffee to it, itís got plenty of raisin, but man this comes across more as a sour. Itís not bad, it just took me totally off guard.

What a strange beer.

beerbaaron (1215) - Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Pours a nice mahogany. Medium creamy khaki head, little lasting with dome lace. Aroma has a good amount of licorice, some caramel, faint dry light roasty chocolate. Flavor is mild hoppy, very light roast, more licorice, dry bitter coffee towards the end. Medium to full body. Very creamy. Feels good on the palate. Light bitterness. Light dryness. Good but not too exciting.

Attractive dark brown pour with tan head and little lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is chocolate , caramel, and some fruit. Has a pleasant roasted cocoa after taste. A sweeter porter, full bodied and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerbill (3378) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2013
12 oz. bottle that I purchase in Wisconsin during my recent roadtrip to Yellowstone. Pours very dark brown, just about black, with a thin-moderate tan head that is gone by the second sip and leaves no lace. The aroma is roasted malt with stale tobacco. The flavor continues the roasted malt and stale tobacco theme, but also includes a notable metallic twang. Medium bodied. Not worth finishing...and I didnít.

Bottle. Deep brown pour with reddish highlights. Minimal head. Roasted malt, nut, and some dark fruit sweetness. This is pretty enjoyable stuff.

dekester1 (312) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Poured a nice dark brown with a light beige head and lacing. Aroma was malty and fruity with a twinge of sweetness. Taste was of roasted malts up front with slight inklings of coffee and cocoa. It finished with a light to moderate hop bitterness and a slight hay flavor. Palate was very good. Overall, a nice porter!

novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Aroma is heavy on the malt, but with hints of blackberries and stone fruit. A delicious malt flavor underneath the steady carbonation. Finish is medium to dry, with hints of coffee and a nice gravity. Liked it a lot, had on draft at the Weary Traveler in Madison, Wisconsin.

Aroma is dark fruit/berries, lightly roasted malts and a hint of acidity. The flavor is berries, coffee, malts and a mix of fruit and acidity in the finish.
