COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a smooth, full-bodied beer. A rich "nuts & berries" flavor followed by a coffee-like finish. Based on the traditional English Porter beers ofthe late 1800’s. Originally created for Irish immigrants working the shipping docks in England. They were a hard working lot who wanted a "stout" style brew with more alcohol content to drink during their all too short lunch breaks.

zer0crew (119) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a very strong aroma of vanilla, with some almond and coconut(?). Taste is nutty, but not in a good way. It’s honestly a bit offsetting. Long finish, almost oily, with some definite bitterness. Not a huge fan.

Dark brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma is roasty and has notes of chocolate and coffee. Flavor is a bit bitter and ashy, with roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Not bad.

For a Porter lover, this beer has everything you need. It has a nice, dark colored head and a smooth finish. It’s perfect for a Wisconsin winter night in.

Aroma is of roasted barley, nuts, and a wee bit of hops. It goes down super clean with a bit of sweetness and finishes with some smoke. Great offering from Tom!
