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

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 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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lightly hazed brown liquid with a moderate to small off-white head. Day old coffee and chocolate malt aromas. Fairly thin, but not watery. Flavors of lightly burnt coffee and hints of dark chocolate. Some mild fruit and vegetable components that distract. Certainly not the worst porter I’ve had, but nothing to exciting.

Appearance of mud with no head. Light coffee aroma. Chocolate flavor that’s quite bitter, with watery malts. Not bad.
