A dark, full bodied beer, with overtones of coffee and roasted barley, that is slightly sweet, with just enough hops to balance out the full malt flavor.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Pours an opaque brown-black with very little head. Nose is of coffee and dark malt. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is of dark roasted malt, coffee and a vague hint of hops on the finish. Only an average Porter, this one pairs well with cheese spread on Ritz crackers.

[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.

Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of roasted malt, bakers cocoa and light coffee. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of roasted malt, bakers cocoa and light earthiness with a smooth dry lingering cocoa finish.

Atom (1584) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2014
12oz bottle pours a dark brown with amber highlights and a thin khaki head. Fairly light and dry aroma, molasses cocoa, a mild roast and slight coffee. Taste of cocoa, molasses, a light but steady and slightly chalky roast, with pleasant mild bitterness throughout. A pretty nice approachable and drinkable porter.

BeerInHeaven (210) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2014
pours dark brown with a small tan head. The nose is faint malt and booze, like bourbon or whiskey. Creamy mouth feel. Hint of coffee and spice. A little bitterness fades in. Not bad, but not memorable.

Thin, weak, altogether underwhelming. This is not a good example of what a porter should be.

BVery (7367) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle. Deep chestnut pour with a small white head. Nice roasty and sweet toffee aroma. Similar taste. Medium bodied. This is pretty solid, much better than I was anticipating based on the average ratings.

ccex (1000) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a dark brown with small khaki head and some lacing. Aroma is chock full of roasted malts and bready malts, with some coffee bitterness and nuts. Taste is slightly bitter. Body is at best medium (I always hope for a thicker porter) with average carbonation. At first I thought that the breadiness in this reminded me of a doppelbock, but on further reflection, it’s just another porter with a slightly different twist.

tmoreau (2724) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2012
On tap at the brewpub bar, and dispensed to a pint glass with a nearly opaque, amber highlighted, dark brown color, with a substantial, light tan, cakey head, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was mild roastiness, with cocoa and coffee notes of like intensity, a bit of nuttiness, and just a touch of toffee sweetness. The flavor was similar, adding moderate hop bitterness, a medium body, and soft carbonation. The finale was fairly dry. A decently crafted Porter.
