3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick and heavy on the palate. Coffee, tobacco, and malt roasted to the point of being nearly burnt. Still, more fully flavored than many, and a good smooth palate. All of the flavors work. Better than a a lot of dialed in porters.

Growler courtesy of Skyview. Dark brown color with a large head. Awesome chocolate and roasted malt aroma. The flavor pulls back a lot, down to just a hint of coffee, very light smoke and some roasted malt.

Color is black/dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and anise. Taste is about the same. Nothing too special but an enjoyable and solid porter.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(growler thanks Skyview!) Pours black with an off-white head. The aroma was primarily dominated by burnt malts, with scents of smoke, sour spent coffee grounds, and an odd barnyard scent that smelled similar to wet hay. The taste is completely overtaken by overly roasted malt, slight smoke, coffee, and just a hint of chocolate appears, but it does nothing to offset the massive onslaught of astringency. Medium mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Titletown. Poured very deep brown with a short, creamy cap of beige head. The aroma was sweet and coffee-ee with a nice lighter chocolate complement.. warmth brought out some molasses on the back of the nose.. dry overall and nicely presented. The flavor had heavy lighter-roasted coffee all over with coffee and faint woody bitterness surrounding.. again warmth brought out the molasses as well as semi-sweet chocolates.. tasty. Medium-bodied with OK balance on the palate.. a bit rough at the end, which precluded some of the good malts from coming through.

On draught at the brewpub in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear cola brown brew with a creamy and thin beige head that slowly dissipates to a fine film and beige ring. Aroma of toasted dark malt, dark chocolate, a touch of lactose, molasses and some flowery hops. Taste is medium, bodied, very light carbonation with flavors of toasted dark multi-grain malts, dark chocolate and some allspice. Finish has a nice balance of toasted dark malt, chocolate and flowery hop character. Actually, not a bad porter overall.
