Oh yeah, that is a nice Porter. Mississippi River Porter. Nevermind, it has a locomotive pictured on the bottle.

Caramel, chocolate, vanilla, notes deep brown color. Very good, easy drinking. Clear beer drinkers, this will help you understand that all dark beers are not scarey.

Lovely, lighter porter. Aroma carries light chocolate and bitter. Lovely creamy, maltiness in the mouth with the slightly bitter chocolate coming through.

Pours a deep brown almost black with a big head. The aroma is lots of chocolate, mild hops with some earthy and floral character in there as well. The flavor is fruity, not in an overbearing way... or even a dominant way, but it’s the first thing that hits you when you taste it. There is plenty of roasty coffee and a lot of nice hop bitterness. There is a mild smokiness to the beer as well. Overall this was the best beer I had on Saturday. This is a world class porter and a crown jewel in the lineup of a very new, but very welcome addition to the Southwest WI brewing scene.

Nice dark brown color, slightly opaque. Soft aroma with mostly sweet notes. Full body with strong crystal malt influence and coffee flavors. Finishes clean for a robust porter.

This is a surprisingly great porter..dark dark body, nice mocha colored lacing...lots of coffee in both the nose and flavor, combined with some burnt Malta and tailing off to a milk chocolate finish...very smooth body...just good.

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.
