Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Sampled on draught at the brewpub in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a thick and creamy off-white head that slowly dissolves to a fine film and ring. Aroma of light roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and some flowery/grassy hops. Taste is heavy (full bodied), sweet with very little carbonation, with dark chocolate and molasses flavors. Finish is smooth, creamy with a slight dark malt flavor.

Tap. Sweet raisin and chocolate syrup aroma with a roasty bite. Black body under a dark tan head. Smooth dark chocolate, plum and coffee bean in teh flavor. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Wraps up with raisin and espresso. A wonderfully fruity, sweet espresso-like porter.

Iíd had this beer last year at a festival, and Iíd been wanting to visit Silver Creek ever since. The brewpub is very cool, and this beer is quite unique, offering a lot of bourbon character in place of the rich roastiness most commonly found in this style. It was served in a brandy glass or tulip and was opaque with an inviting tan head. Presentation was very wine-like. Smell was rather bourbon-y. Flavor was a bourbon and oak flavor. It was good, but wasnít the quite dry roastiness Iíve come to associate with better porters. Mouthfeel is that of large and uneven bubbles. It is quite unusual, but I didnít love it. I had this on-tap at the Silver Creek brewpub.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2007 On tap at Silver Creek Brewery. This beer needs to be warmed up to appreciate itís full flavor. Folks at Silver Creek will be more than happy to oblige. Poured a deep dark opaque brown. Small light brown head dissappated after a few minutes. Chocolatey sweet aroma was just a hint of what was to come. Taste was that of thick rich dark chocolate with bits of carmel, nuts, raisens, plums--heavenly! Every thick rich sip is to be savored. If there is a better Baltic Porter out there, then I havenít had it!

Near black color with a small light tan head. Interesting aromas of pears and light toasted malts. A rather typical flavor profile with cocoa and dark toasted to roasted malt. A decent porter.

THX Kevin for bringing the growler: Deep brown hue with a small fizzy but lasting head. The aroma has notes of roasted and chocolate malt, some smoke, plum, and a rubbery off-aroma. The taste starts with rich milk chocolate and nutty character with a bit of ripe fruit. The finish is roasty and displays some coffee notes. The feel is dry and smooth. A pretty good beer that I was not expecting much from.

dark pour thick tan head, weak lacing. Overly burnt coffee bottom of the pot aroma, w/ coccoa powder. Palate is very average. Flavor is bittersweet coccoa, very dry some nice roasty malts. A pretty good tasting porter. Thanks to Kevin for sharing.

1FastSTi (3340) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Pours to a dark brown/black body with a dense bubble-spotted tan head. The flavor is pretty tasty. Chocolate, roasty malts, dark fruits, really deep roasty black patent. Very well balanced components. The aroma is roasty black patent and barley. The palate is rich, sweet, roasty, lightly smokey.

Mostly opaque with some lightening at the edges. Inky, despot pool of watery black underneath an initially booming, frothy tan head. Rich milk chocolate melted in the sun seeps up the nose, pursued and complimented by dark caramel running through dense fudge, gooey and undercooked Tollhouse cookies, and rich mocha coolers with excessive chocolate syrup. Well-composed liquid desert flavor sequence ensues. Dry milk chocolate nails it with semi-sweet and rich dark chocolate cousins coming in for nepotistic support. Flavor builds on the chocolate backbone with a mild bitter-sweetness drumming in a dry space in the hallow of the mouth. Medium-to-fuller bodied, perfectly balanced and emitting an all out mocha cappuccino character. Delectable dark chocolate Ghirardelli squares cling on to the tail end of each sip with a gooey delicatessen center burst open from the center of the cube with a prolific lactic cocoa surge. Well done.
