4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had it from the bottle poured into a snifter glass. Smell is of roasted coffee with a nice subtle chocolate undertone. It is dark chocolate in appearance with a beautiful very light milk chocolate head. The taste is just as it smells, except the chocolate really comes through at the end. Overall, this beer could be one of, if not the best, Wisconsin Porters I’ve had!!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle. The look is brownish black in color, thin tan head, and and dark. The smell is malt, coffee, cocoa, dirt, and oreos. The taste is the same but not as appealing.

Not bad. Not my preferred porter. A little watery, but it makes it a bit more sessionable. Aroma is nice, a subtle sweetness. Tastes like weak coffee.

12oz bottle, picked up along the road in WI, IX/13. Solid tasty, pitch black porter with overtones of roasty, blackened malts, coffee beans and cocoa. Mid-full palate, creamy, easily drinkable, if not as complex as advertised.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark black with a thin dark khaki head that settles quickly. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla bean, candied fruit, molasses. Somewhat thin texture leading to a slightly creamy mouthfeel tasting of chocolate malt, toffee and finishing with a bit of bittersweet chocolate tartness. Nice and easy drinking porter.
