Cubby_Bear (5) - Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2013
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.

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

Drake (13152) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2016
12 ounce bottle, 9/24/16. Dark brown, large fizzy tan head, good retention. Aroma of roasted malts, cherries, cinnamon. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, honey, mild dark fruits. Thinbodied, high carbonation.

MaltOne (338) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2016
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 Ive 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 (6083) - 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 (1933) - 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 (4904) - 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 theres a hint of molasses in the nose too, which is mostly dark-roasty and not terrible pronounced; a little cinnamon Im finding as well - nice but its a struggle to find it...body is a bit sweeter than many porters, but not excessively so, and has plenty of nice roastiness, though theres 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.

JPDIPSO (5868) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Light umber color. Smallish, diminishing head. Only hints of caramel and toasted malt. Light whiff of sweet/sour as well. Flavors of dark toasted to light roasted malts. Flavors are a surprise after the scents, or at least not as bad as I expected. Still a touch of sour, or more lactic, but a bit more malt and hints of cacao and dark malt. 12/14

mrjaxson (514) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Solid porter -- a little chocolaty, a little sweet and a little dry. Found on tap at a nice bowling alley in Howards Grove, WI. Come for the beer, stay for the 2016 state seniors bowling tournament.

Tap at Uncle Mikes. Deep brown with a white ring. Roasted malts, a little ashy, smoky and grape juice. Flavor is dryly sweet. Body is lighter with a milk consistency.
