2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. The pour was a medium brown with an orange hue and a large (2-3 finger) khaki colored rocky head that diminished to a thin layer of residue with a decent collar and had fair lacing.
The aroma was super light of a toasted chocolate malt, a mild resin hop and a doughy yeast with notes of chocolate and coffee.
The taste was lightly sweet with a hint of chocolate at first then became a smooth bitter malty with a note of coffee towards the end. The flavor lasted a short while with a weak coffee taste left behind.
Mouthfeel was just a little shy of medium in body and had a slight watery texture with a mild but firm carbonation.
Overall the taste was a little stronger than the aroma but still was a tad on the mild side...

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Honestly, fuck this. It’s not 2002 so why are these guys making 2002 "microbrew." This stuff looks okay and even has a nice chocolatey smell at first but digging deeper, it is just laden w/ off-notes and brewing flaws. Oxidized cardboard and weird cherry-ish notes abound along w/ salty soy-sauce notes which you normally only find in high gravity stuff. One needs only to look at the bottom shelf of the cheap beer section of your grocery store to find a better Wisconsin brew.

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

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
