Purely… delicious. As alluring as freshly-fallen powder and as smooth as hard-pack, the velvety mouth feel and deep flavor are derived from Two-Row Pale, Black Patent, CaraPils, Chocolate and dark Crystal Malts, Roasted Barley and Molasses. Fuggle hops act as the snow hook that anchors this big dog, a bottle-conditioned brew that could very well leave a musher believing it fell straight from Heaven.

Had on tap at Chase in Walker, at the brewery, and in bottles. I enjoyed this porter. Rich with flavors.

Bottle. Nice dark semi thick pour with a nice brown head. Smells slightly like chocolate and.....why is this smelling sour? First taste.....AAHHH, my asshole is puckering! WTF? Straight vinegar and sour. From the other ratings on here I’m guessing something was wrong with this bomber.

This one was picked up from the Wine and Spirits store in Walker in the bomber. It poured a caramel brown, with a very short lived head. The malt was well balanced without a sweet overload that the grain bill would suggest. Balanced well by the resiny/citrusy Fuggles. I prefer this one to the Scotch Ale. Very good.

Sample at Winterfest. From notes. Nice dark pour, light brown diminishing head, very little lacing. Aroma and taste are pretty typical for a porter, though I am getting a bit more "smoke" than "roast". Overall, a decent beer, but nothing standout.

Winterfest ’11. Pours hazy brown, a thin off white head. Aroma has notes of some chocolate, roast, and some coffee. Taste is a bit thin, but has some nice roast and a touch of coffee, bitter finish. Not bad, nice flavors but a bit one dimensional.
