COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Appearing almost black at first glance, Wild Goose Porter is actually a deep ruby-red ale. Roasted malt flavors accent its velvety finish.

Poured a dark brown with ruby highlights. Light brown head dissipated rather quickly. Nice roastinedd and bitterness, but ballanced a little to far to the sweet side for me. Rather clean finish.

A simple basic one dimensional porter. Yet, enjoyable and drinkable. This brewery makes some good brews. Taste of roasted malt, tastes creamy, nice finish. Very flavorful, I would drink this again and again!

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2009
12 oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with ruby red highlights, and a one finger brown head. The aroma was roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor was strong with chocolate, roasted coffee and a bitter finish. This was a much better offering than the oatmeal stout. Would drink this one again.

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Pours very nice deep red color with small tan head. Nice aroma of roasted chocolate malt, but somewhat faint. Flavor is similar, good creamy roasted chocolate flavor with a nice bitterness for excellent balance. Decent beer with good flavor, but a little light on aroma and body.

Goodgrief (1782) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 23, 2008
Oct. 2007 - Dark pour, pinky finger head and lacing. Weak aroma of roast. Flavor was smooth and chocolatey, with some roasted coffee. Not overly strong, but smooth going down. Not bad.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Dorwart. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells vegetal with some chocolate and spice. Tastes of chocolate with some underlying spice, but itís hard to get past the grassy quality this beer seems to possess.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Pours near black with a little less than a finger of tan head. Aroma is of sweet chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is nice and smooth and the roasted and chocolate malts can definitely be tasted. This is a yummy reasonably priced porter.
