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.

An okay porter. Dark, but not particularly thick. Mild at the beginning with roastiness coming on strong at the end.

Bottle at brewfest. Dark pour with tan head. Smells of dark malts, coffee and chocolate. A little smoke in the taste. OK beer

madvike (2806) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle - Pours cola colored with a light tan head. Nose is metal, chocolate, honey, and dark sweet malt. Taste is honey bread, cocoa, milky with brown sugar and honey finish. Real jacked up carbonation with a thin body.

felsenpils (117) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 1, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours black with off-white foam. The aroma is roasted malt, but I miss the esters in an English porter. The taste is somewhat thin and lackluster. Not very good, but drinkable I suppose. All that they got right was the color and that´s it.

Christpuncher (1342) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A real easy to drink porter. Not too smokey and light in alcohol. Pours almost black in color. Smells smokey. Bad at hq in Wisconsin ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crossovert (7744) - Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2014
335ml bottle, darker pour. Smell is reminiscent of anchor porter but better. Caramel and toffee, soft hops, soft roast. Falvor also bings to mind anchor porter with an almost crippling english ale yeast character. This one has more cocoa and is more redeemable.

Dfonorow (1581) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2014
On tap at Milwaukee Brew Fest 2013. Pour is dark brown with a slight ruby tint and a small tan head. Aroma and flavor of semi-sweet chocolate, roasted nuts, smoked malts, and a bit of honey. Thin, watery finish.

Aroma is chocolate malts, toffee and dark bread. The flavor is caramel, toffee, strong dark bread and fruit/slight acidity in the finish.

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.
