COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As far as porters go, this one is heavier on the caramel malt and lighter on the roast malt. I will be smoking a small portion of the base malt in-house for a smoky complexity. This beer will pair well with most of our menu items.

Dark brown pour at the brewpub with a slight tan head and some lacing. Not much going on in the nose - roasted malt. Taste is malty, chewy, slightly smoky in the finish. Roasted dark malt, slight bitter chocolate. Quite nice.

arminjewell (6173) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big dark chocolate, creamy milk, hints of oat into some slight smoke, dark roast, coffee, mocha like notes, nice. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, coffee, roast, some sweet vanilla, oat, and dark fruits, into some yeast, finishing sweet, slightly bitter. Nice.

Draft at at Northbound during RBSG. From notes. Roasty malt with a good deal of smoky. This went absolutely awesome with my bigass burger.

Pours a dark, opaque almond brown with a tan head. Smell is caramel with a bit of campfire smoke. Taste is definitely more burnt caramel than roast flavors, but some charred toast is also present alongside a notable but not overpowered smokiness. The smoke sticks a bit in the finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at APN. Pours black with some tan head. Caramel, chocolate and roasted malts, slight smokiness. Very creamy and thick, nice.

This beer is the perfect march to the nice smoked meats they serve at Northbound. If you like a smokey porter than this one is for you. Nice mouth feel and smooth. My favorite of their brews. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
