2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewpub. Reddish, dark brown beer. The head is thin, but sticky enough. The flavor tends toward the sweet, roasty edges, with a maltier-than-most-porters characters. Another OK offering here, but a bit unextraordinary. (#5155, 7/6/2013)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Stonefly. Brown-black, some light shines through the edges. Steady creamy beige head. Sweet chocolate aroma, some coffee. A big, rich Porter, lots of chocolate and coffee notes. Bold and roasty, oily coffee edge. The bitterness really brings a sharp edge to it. Some fruity amber malt in the background. OK.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quickly dissipating white head that leave a little lacing. Slight roastiness and maltiness in a thin body. Barely noticeable hop taste and aroma. A drinkable robust porter but not as robust as others I’ve had. A decent beer that can be drank outside of the cold winter days.

Slightly thin, but ultimately decent porter. Not too robust, just enough to consider it average.

Beerfest in Chilton. This beer is exactly what it claims to be: A decent Porter. It has a nice coffee aroma and flavor, and is thin in body with a dark color and beige-tan head.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served on draught at the Wisconsin Micro-brewers Beerfest in Chilton, Wisconsin. Pours a semi hazy dark brown brew with a thin beige head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and off-white ring. Aroma of roasted dark multi-grain malts, some coffee, dark chocolate and roasted nuts. Taste is medium to full bodied, light carbonated with flavors of toasted dark malt, dark chocolate, mild coffee and some nuts. Finish is a little light with a mild dark malt aftertaste that quickly disappears.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown color with a half-finger tan head. Smells like a porter: chocolate, toasted malts, slight hops aroma. Tastes like a drinkable but totally unimpressive porter. Kind of smoky, although that may have been the bar itself. I agree with previous raters: very thin mouthfeel bordering on watery.
