At downtown Madison. Wanted so badly to like this but maybe the cask was old. A touch of stale soapy. Serving: Cask tmoreau (4526) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Cask sampler at the Doty St. location in Madison, WI., showing a rather clear, dark brown hue, with some amber highlighting, a light layer of brownish tan head foam that produced a persistent ring, and spots of lacing. The nose was roasted and dry, with some dark caramel notes. A little less than medium bodied, with typically fair carbonation for cask, a roasted & earthy bitterness with a touch of citrusy astringency, and a wisp of soapiness on the finish. 5.9% abv listed.

Sample at the downtown brewpub. Dark brown color with a medium tan head that recedes steadily to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and coffee. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted coffee, cocoa and burnt malt. The finish is roasty with a malt aftertaste. Decent overall. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2014

On tap at the brewpub. Comes dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and some citrus. Nice. Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Madison, WI. This was decent with a good roasted malt, but a bit too sweet and not enough hop. Lots of cocoa, and sweet caramel in the light nose. Body was decently strong and well carbonated, but not quite as creamy as I would have liked. More nutty notes, roasted grains, and mixed dark cereal malts in the flavor. Overall, there’s some room for improvement I think. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Madison, WI. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma has lots of roasts, some sweeter chocolates and light caramels, and a light piney hopping. Flavor is similar. Roasty, slightly sweet from the chocolate and light caramels, and lightly hopped. Finishes dry and roasty with a light bitterness and a light malt sweetness before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent porter. Nothing special, but enjoyable and easy drinking. bpreo (2886) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2011
Sampled this at the Fitchburg Brewpub.Had a brown appearance, more of a light Porter according to my taste. Just OK.
