COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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."

Can, thanks Darrel! Opaque black with nick khaki head. Really good aroma of chocolate. Nice chocolate flavor up front with smooth cocoa finish. Clean, no bitterness. Really solid porter, one of the better I have had.

This one poured a dark cola color with a beige head. Aroma was of light chocla.te, roast, and caramel. Flavor was similar, standard brown poter, not very robust, but not bad.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Pours minimal head on a black with brown edges body. The aroma is roasted malt with coffee. Bold and nice. The taste is roasted malt and chocolate. Balanced and good. The texture is smooth and creamy with low to moderate carbonation. Delicious and solid porter.

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 4, 2013
This was a joint tasting with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. This beer poured from the 12 oz can a dark red appearing brown with a very robust tan head and light lacing. nose of roasted malts showing coffee, chocolate and a hint of smoke. Light to medium body with kind of a thin mouth feel. the flavor was rich with chocolate forward, and some coffee, toffee, and a tiny bit of what Dave called Swampy. Good description. This beer was well balanced and easy drinking. Lots to like here.

Strykzone (4812) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2013
12 ounce can from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This poured with a nice big tan head and was dark brown with some red. The aroma was chocolate with some kind of swampy note. I never could identify it. The flavor was also fairly soft chocolate in front. Very light hop notes were a bit sour. It is earthy. That unidentified aroma is also tasted and remained unidentified. This was a nice beer that could have been a stout with the fairly rich feel.

Dark brown with a small pale head. Aroma is smoke, chocolate, toasted grains. Thin bodied, surprisingly smoky, slight sweetness on the palate. Taste is smoke, chocolate, toasted malts.
