12 oz bottle purchased as a single at Rimann in Prairie Village, Kansas. The pour is an opaque brown black, with a big foamy, noisy dark khaki head. The aroma is dry leaves, tobacco, roast, and grass. The taste is the dry grass, tobacco and char roast of the nose, along with a big dark chocolate mineral character to the finish. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and a flinty dry mineral finish. Nice Porter, delighted to see Crane beers in 12 oz bottles. ozzy70 (1433) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 11, 2018
Sample from bottle at Extreme Beer Fest, Ralson Arena. Poured black with a dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee. Taste was mild bitter, roasted malt, dark chocolate, smoke, bitter finish. HuskerTan (2590) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - FEB 25, 2018
A- Milk chocolate, roasty.
A- Black color, black liquid, brown head.
T- Cocoa, roasty, char, mild coffee.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish.
O- More like a stout than porter in my opinion. For a brewery that does mostly sours, this turned out nicely. Brewer told me that there are no adjuncts in here and all notes come from the grains used. Sort of surprising with the amount of chocolate and coffee one might pick up.

On tap at Llewellyn's. It poured a dark brown almost black color with a tan head. The aroma was of chocolate, caramel and licorice. The taste was similar to the aroma with more chocolate, caramel, licorice and medium carbonation with a semi-sweet aftertaste. Not bad. balloonbuffoon (923) - - NOV 29, 2017
10floz draft pour to a straight glass. Appears a dark-brown with one finger of tan head. The smell is of bakers chocolate. This comes out some in the flavor, but molasses and licorice are more strongly present. Body is medium-full feeling. A pretty good robust porter. ads135 (5324) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 29, 2017
Not a bad porter, especially for a brewery that specializes in sours and lambics. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head. Surprisingly thin bodied, but with a nice amount of chocolate and caramel. Potent roasty aroma. Tried with Brandon at the brewery in 2017.
