3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is sweet caramel, appearance is more of a brown than a dark porter, taste is caramel/chocolate/malt. Overall a very sessionable porter that is not too intrusive.
Bottle. It poured black with a quicky dissipating beige head. The aroma was malty with notes of smoke and chocolate. The taste was sweet as well. It was medium bodied and was slight thick on the tongue. Nice porter. StoutBeerReviews (153) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 25, 2017
Pale and dry, mild mustiness and a bit of coffee and dark chocolate. overall seems kinda weak and un-interesting. I do like the musty bits tho. twindadplus2 (715) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 30, 2017
Dark walnut color with a thin but firm tan head. Light roasted malt aroma with a bit of chocolate. Flavors of dark chocolate and bitter hops with a malty sweetnes in the background. Medium bodied at best with very light carbonation and a long bitter finish. Not like what I expect from a porter but decent still. Carlisle (745) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2017

A middling porter. Thin, somewhat watery with a weak chocolate and coffee character. Lots of bite at the end.

Pours a classic reddish brown coffee color, though somewhat translucent, brief fizzy head. Aroma also classic porter profile with coffee and chocolate, in this case, with a noticeable vanilla note. Taste follows the aroma, and is right in the porter profile, coffee, chocolate, vanilla; dry/faintly bitter, roasty finish. Palate...giving it a positive spin, this is one of the lightest porters I’ve had. It has all the characteristics of a porter, it just feels slightly thin. That could be a good thing... you could call it a session porter. Overall, its good, just a bit shy of what I expect of a Porter. That said I like what Door County has been producing. wlajwl (6815) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Aroma is coffee, chocolate, dark malts and slightly earthy. The flavor is dark malts, dark/brown bread, coffee/chocolate, toffee, mild sweetness and a mix of acidity and slight spiciness in the finish. tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Tap at Garage. Very dark with oatmeal head. Sourdough and play doh and roastiness. Light and roasty with a hint of the sourdough in the flavor. muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 15, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served probably a little too cold in a Flying Fish pint glass. Not-quite-opaque molasses with a smallish head that diminishes to a faint coating...strangely there’s a hint of molasses in the nose too, which is mostly dark-roasty and not terrible pronounced; a little cinnamon I’m finding as well - nice but it’s a struggle to find it...body is a bit sweeter than many porters, but not excessively so, and has plenty of nice roastiness, though there’s an odd saccharine quality that asserts itself a bit with more warmth...thin, somewhat watery mouthfeel, average carbonation. Not terrible, but Door County would probably be better off concentrating on the Belgian styles if my experience is any indication.
