This is a curious porter. I am not sure if it is intentional but this has a bit of a funky tart character that sets it off from most of its style. It is not terribly strong like the bottle got infected but very much there. It is a deep brown color and almost headless. The biggest players here are roasted malt charcter and some caramel sweetness. This sweetness, along w/ some hoppy bitterness implies dark chocolate and that slightly tart charcacter implies dried fruit. I am not sure if Id pin this as a porter just tasting it. To me, it tastes more like a milk stout complete w/ lactose. It is really quite complex and very drinkable w/ its medium body and mild carbonation. It might not hit the spot for someone looking for a dry and hoppy American porter like Founders or something of that ilk but this is a nice change of pace.

Served on nitro-tap in downtown Janesville, WI. This pours a black color with creamy beige head. The flavor is full of roasted, toasted malts and grains. The texture is smooth, creamy full of flavor. It leaves a lingering roasted malt aftertaste. Pretty decent stuff and would love to have again.

[Tap] Tried on nitro at the taproom back in March. Pours a very deep brown color with a compact nitro head. Chalky malt and coffee grounds in the nose. Dark breads, bitter cocoa, sticky molasses and light hop kick in the taste. Creamy mouthfeel. Comes together well.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - FEB 18, 2014
12oz. bottle. Roasty, chocolate aroma, toasty, plenty of dark malts and a hint of coffee present, along with a lightly doughy yeast touch in the background (bottle-conditioned). Dark brown, nearly black in color, with a slight but lasting light tan head. Flavor profile is roasty and deeply malty, with suggestions of cocoa, coffee, faint smoke and an earthy, herbal hop character appearing late, finishing toasty, moderately bitter and with a certain tangy quality. Effervescent is fine but persistent, mouthfeel is quite dry and just a little bit thin, body is medium. Pretty tasty.

Bottle from a friend. My first beer from Oso. Pours dark brown to black with a half finger off white head. Aroma of strong chocolate goodness with some heavy roast malt in the background. Flavor follows with chocolate as the highlight and plenty of bitter roasted malt on the finish. Just a bit of dark fruit to go along. Velvety smooth mouthfeel with lowish carbonation. Very nice body. Overall a solid porter.

Scipio (814) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Pours black with a big tan head that settles slowly. Roasty aroma contains coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and hints of cherry and smoke. The taste brings out more chocolate than other impressions. There is less coffee here, and very minor vanilla flavors. The cherry comes through more throughout, all ending in a short aftertaste of chocolate and cherry. Medium in body with a thin and creamy texture. Carbonation is flat. This one is very easy to drink. This might not be the best porter around, but it is still solid.
