The “Back Forty” is property commonly found on the outskirts of the Wisconsin family farm. Here uncultivated acres wait prime for adventure- forts, tree houses, rope swings and first kisses! A place to run away, to camp, to climb, to build, to play. Not actually home but not too far away. That’s the Back Forty. The beer you hold is similar both dark and adventurous still smooth and familiar. Here’s a beer you can enjoy without pretense or explanation. Every mind requires some acres of possibility, space for dreams, the great escape, everyone needs a Back Forty.

Pours a lightly hazy ruby - nose of esters (baked banana), dark breads, roasted nuts - creamy texture, medium body, soft carbonation - rich toasty maltiness - somewhat dry and toasty, but with some toffee sweetness to it - light bitterness, hazelnut - mild over ripe banana - light spiciness - a touch of huskiness, but it’s very mild - fairly enjoyable bock - nice malt richness to it.

Light body and taste. Brown color on a white head. Mild cocoa notes. Coffee hints. Rather boring but not bad. Probably had too many big beers before this puppy

Bottle. Subtle chocolate and malt flavors. Very smooth and not too sweet, but still with no edge of bitterness. Good finish and aftertaste. Well-balanced.

GIJOE (763) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Pours dark amber with a huge, foamy, off-white head that stays 'til Jesus comes! Nose is malty and has hints of molasses. Taste is predominately sweet. A bit of a coffee note on the palate. Medium (pushing full) body. Lively carbonation. Honey finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cpetrone84 (1600) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pour is dark brown with copper edged, mostly clear with a tight off white head. Nose is toasted grain, sweet malt, and brown sugar. Taste has less grain and a hint musky, a bit sweet, brown sugar, stronger carb, flavors get a hint muted.

sawbuck (399) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Aroma of sweet caramel, mixed with notes of chocolate, and sweet malt. Nut brown color with shades of dark orange, with a unique white head. First taste is muted chocolate and sweet malt. Sweetness is muted quickly with an average bitterness. Finishes smooth with a balanced aftertaste. Might be more enjoyable in fall but nice beer.

troyc (2862) - Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2014
[Bottle] Brown in color with a tint of orange to it. Very little head on top. Sweet and sticky aroma of sweet breads, caramel and raisins. Flavor notes include bread, light brown sugar, toffee and some nut. Syrupy, but not cloying. Another good one from this brewery.
