Sampled at Doran’s. Dark brrown with some amber. A beige head. Earthy aroma that has grain and soft coffee. A more robust flavor of coffee, earth, and grains. Moderate bitter bite is grains. Floral and citrus hop notes. Decent stuff.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This pours a thin, dark brown color with little to no carbonation. Aroma is mild with robust caramel tones. The taste is thin, slightly robust and very chalky. Granted this was a old bottle I had laying around so take that at face value but I think it was laying around because I didn’t care for the previous bottles. Much better porter options out in the market place.

Bottle. It poured a dark brown color with a light tan head. The aroma was of roasted coffee, caramel and some chocolate. The taste was similar to the aroma with bitter coffee, some chocolate and caramel malts. Nicely done.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours very dark brown to black with not much of a cream colored head that leaves some stringy ropes of lace that look like the Isle of Man flag. Nose involves roasted malt, some dark chocolate, some milk chocolate, a bit of mustiness, some peppery spice, some meatiness. Decently sweet, lightly bitter. Medium to light bodied, creamy yet a bit watery, softer carb, finishing a bit twangy with milk chocolate and dust. Kind of a weak brew, but my first from Door County, WI, which is pretty cool.

Got this beer from a good friend. Got it at the brewery. So I think this is as fresh as it can be. Malty taste, hints of chocolate and coffee. Black as night. Tan flothy head stays a while. A very good beer.

Bottle. It poured a translucent brown with a beige head. The aroma was roasted malt and coffee. The flavor was the same with hints of cocoa, roasted nuts and some star anise. The taste was a balance between bitter upfront and sweetness on the end.

[Bottle] Darker brown color with a fizzy beige head on top. Looks a lot like cola. Aromas of nut, weak coffee, cocoa and star anise. Flavors of roasted malts, caramel, grain husks, earthy hops, cocoa, watered down coffee and light spice. Dry finish. Rather thin. Tasting notes from 8/2014.
