2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Brennan’s Country Farm Market in Brookfield, WI. Pours a clear light brown brew with a fast dissolving light tan head that leaves behind a fine film and off-white head. Aroma of lightly roasted chocolate and dark malts, some coffee and roasted hazelnuts. Taste is medium bodied, slightly carbonated, with flavors of light dark malt and a hint of chocolate. Finish is semi-sweet, slightly watery with a quick disappearing dark malt aftertaste. Hmmm, I sort of miss Mark May’s Badger Porter when Wisconsin Brewing Company in Wauwatosa was brewing this brand.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a smaller cream colored head. Aroma of nuts and coffee. Medium palate - easy drinking. Very slight sweetness. Not too bad.

12/20/13 trade from Jamil. Decent strength scent an flavor of coffee, roasty, nutty, dark chocolate nib. A bit thinner feel than I expected. Dark brown almost black appearance. Overall, ok, but nothing extraordinary.

Poured lighter than I though it should. Slight tan head that disappeared quickly. Light in body. Flavor was decent but nothing stood out distinctly. A decent sessionable porter.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark amber with a ruby hue and almost no head. Aroma of a little chocolate and a little Marciano cherry. Taste is light sweet. A little chocolate with citrus and banana. Light bodied with a thin texture. Soft carbonation and a longer than expected finish. Overall, ok. Not really diggin it though.

I love porters. This one is okay, but nothing outstanding that I’d go out of my way for.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a nice dark brown with a modest beige head and lacing. Aroma was of roasted malts and coffee. Taste was also of roasted malts, coffee, cocoa and a light hop bitterness finish. Mouthfeel was pretty good. Overall, a fairly decent Porter from the folks @ Sand Creek.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of mild roast, some chocolate, caramel and maybe a bit of toffee present. Appearance is deep ruby black with thin tan head. Flavor of caramel and some chocolate up front; these come off as tangy. The finish reveals a little more roast character overall without a discernible hop presence. This beer is light bodied with a thin texture; the carbonation is average. Just kinda dull; the kind of porter you’ve had time and again.
