This medal winning porter pours dark brown with a rich tan head. A medium malt sweetness balances with the hops to produce slightly chocolatey overtones and a smooth finish. "Keeping the wheel rolling."

tmoreau (3754) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Shared 12 oz. cans poured to snifters showing a dark brown color with some ruby highlighting, a presentable layer of brownish tan head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was malty, with a hint of freezer burn, roasted, cocoa, and moderate sweetness. A touch less than medium bodied, with fair carbonation, and texture that became a little watery and thinned a bit, the taste was similar notes as the aroma’s, less the burn, moderate roasted & earthy bitterness and some dryness to the finish. A pleasant, light Porter.

Serving: from bottle purchased at the Beer Junction. Aroma: light cocoa. Appearance: small, light-brown, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, cola-brown body. Taste: lightly sweet, cocoa initial flavor and lightly sweet and roasty finish with long duration. Palate: medium body, watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very good flavor with a lasting roasty aftertaste.

mcberko (14663) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2016
On tap at Sockeye Pub & Grill, pours a deep dark red with a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted malt, not much else. Flavour is light-bodied, with toasted malt and dry cocoa. Light and watery but nothing wrong with it. Okay.

Bill Becker (819) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Canned March 22nd 2016. It pours a very dark brown with reddish hues, good head of off white foam, plenty of lacing. I get cocoa nibs, coffee in the smell. Very little bitterness and it is not strong in the malt department either other than some roast. Cocoa nibs bring some sweet notes, roasted malt well represented, getting some dark fruits that don’t quite impart some tartness or do they? I would say yes but it seems, only when I swish the beer in my mouth. Light bodied with light carbonation. This could use a boost. Overall, I enjoyed this, my second can. The other 4 will be easy to drink.
