3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, a bit of coffee and chocolate. Dry and full bodied, taste is more roasted malt with some more chocolate and a bit of caramel. Malty finish. Pretty solid all around.

A solid American porter, it is rich, but not overly robust, this brewery has some potential.

12 oz bottle from SIL Todd...thanks....pours dark dark brown..almost black with light tan head that passes quickly. Mild hoppy nose; light chocolate / coffee malt taste....not the top of the porter pile, but a good Wisconsin product....will do another...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep dark black mahogany with a nice sized creamy tan head. Nose is of molasses and caramel. Nice and creamy on the palate. The taste is rich and slightly sweet with notes of caramel, molasses and dark roasted grains. A very good porter that pairs well with deli sandwiches on whole grain bread.

Nice roasty nose with a hint of coffee. Pours with a thick white head which dissipates quickly, decent lacing. Black, but not opaque. Roast, coffee, and some chocolate dominate the flavor profile; pleasant hop bitterness. Medium-light body, appropriate carbonation, goes down silky and smooth. A nice addition to the developing Midwestern lineup of craft brew.

Deep mahogany red color with a foamy brown head. Roast grain nose. Sweet caramel flavors with roast grains, burnt coffee and a gentle hop presence. This is a nice porter.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Old Fashioned. Opaque blac, nice off white head. Roasty chocolate aroma. A touch of a watery mouthfeel, but the hits the mark stylistically. Mossy, with some borderline Stout nuances. A little thin bodywise, relies a little heavily on the specialty malt. Drinkable, but still sub par and unimpressive. Mild chocolate bitterness in the aftertaste.
