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!!

Poured from bottle, pours a very dark brown with a thin tan head, the aroma has nice notes of light roast with some coffee as well, the flavor has a good amount of coffee at first with some burnt malt and chocolate in the finish, nice mouthfeel, not bad at all.

12 oz. bottle picked up at Woodman’s. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, a mix of bitter dark chocolate and sweeter, creamy milk chocolate, vanilla, decent body, some mild plus bitterness to the finish, the nose is a bit better than the flavor, overall pretty good.

Poured dark black with an off white head. Strong chocolate taste with light coffee overtones. Head adds a great creamy flavor on top of the main taste. Great beer

Bottle. The pour is black with a thin head. The aroma is nice, malty and roasty, near perfect for this style. The taste is very nice as well. The malt mixes well and a perfect hint of roast. Nails it for a porter. Well done! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
