On draft at B-Dubs around the corner from the hotel on a work trip to Wisconsin. I love that CW is on tap, but I don’t like this beer. The pour is a darker red color, kind of brown, with a thicker khaki head that falls down to a thick film leaving some decent lace. This thing just looks thin. The aroma is boring and basic. There is a hint of roasty malt and a light chocolate. More roast. Plain. The flavor is a little worse. There is a strong roasted malt and a light chocolate, but it’s really forced. It’s a sharp chocolate that doesn’t go with anything. The mouth feel is watery and light. The carbonation is thin and light and it’s just not good on the palate. The aftertaste is lightly metallic and just not good. Damnit Central Waters. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2016
Can from Top Hops, New York. Dark mahogany beer with a rich beige head. Licorice aroma, chocolate, fruity, caramel and bread. Roasted chocolate flavor, caramel, cocoa, some tobacco. Surprisingly thin bodied. Dazz3 (1798) - Hallsberg, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2016
Bottled. Pours black small brown head. Smells boiled vegetables, soy, roasted malt. Tastes soy, salty roaste malt with a similar finish. mfhennig (285) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Clear brown pour, nice beige head. Aroma bitter chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor matches, mildly bitter finish. A bit thin but tasty. Ron (3957) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle. Deep brown with white head. Muted nose of dark bread, toasted malt, some hops and faint cacao nibs. Taste is much the same with just a small amount of malt. Thin for a porter.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark brown; nice brown head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and barley. Taste is roasty, malty, some chocolate notes and even some hops (well balanced). Very good porter, very drinkable and quite enjoyable. Travlr (24759) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Bottle sample in Sioux Falls. Clear brown color, tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste has coffee grounds and cocoa powder. Very stout-like. Slipstream (2625) - USA - NOV 8, 2015
Thanks to Dave. A lot of molasses flavor in this porter. A little smoke and cola. Lightly hopped. Nothing too exciting. euniceradio (535) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2015
12oz bottle to tulip. Pours black with brown frothy head. Aroma of choc, caramel, vanilla and earth. Taste is big choc, vanilla, caramel, toffee and some creamy coffee (cappuccino). Mouthfeel is light-medium for style. Finish is nice bitter choc. Very good (choc) porter...at least it feels good tonight. Carlisle (745) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Draft. Dark brown color with tan head and some lacing. Coffee aroma with caramel note. Sweet coffee upfront followed by mouthcoating coffee, chocolate notes and crisp, bitter bite. Lighter body than expected for a porter. Long finish.
