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 1800s. 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.

Poured into my pint glass the head is freakin enormus. Its a rich caramel brown and after settling down it leaves a nice bit of lace on my glass. The beer is dark chocolate brown almost black. The aroma is fantastic. It smells like a glass of iced coffee.it has a sweet aroma as well with a hint of earthy malt that literally makes me smile. The flavor is very nice. Burnt chocolate malt, coffee and a mild hop bite. It has a full body that has plenty of carbonation and richness that really shines after warming a bit. This is a great example of what a porter should be. Another great WI beer that makes me proud.

Bottle from Woodmans in the Falls. Brown pour with a light brown head. Aroma has caramel and fruit and molasses-y old socks. Taste is of sweet caramel, some molasses, a bit of brown sugar and light earth. Medium bodied. Finishes sweet and earthy. Mix of a brown and a scotch ale, more than a porter, IMO. 12.8

Crushed with Jakebra
Pours a dark brown with reddish hues when held up to light. The head is medium sized and leaves some lacing on the glass.

Man, the aroma is really sweet... lots of molasses & raisin. Its got some roastiness, but geeze its really raisiny.

The flavor is tart fruit, like to the point of sour. Its nutty & has some coffee to it, its got plenty of raisin, but man this comes across more as a sour. Its not bad, it just took me totally off guard.

What a strange beer.

beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Pours a nice mahogany. Medium creamy khaki head, little lasting with dome lace. Aroma has a good amount of licorice, some caramel, faint dry light roasty chocolate. Flavor is mild hoppy, very light roast, more licorice, dry bitter coffee towards the end. Medium to full body. Very creamy. Feels good on the palate. Light bitterness. Light dryness. Good but not too exciting.

Attractive dark brown pour with tan head and little lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is chocolate , caramel, and some fruit. Has a pleasant roasted cocoa after taste. A sweeter porter, full bodied and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle that I purchase in Wisconsin during my recent roadtrip to Yellowstone. Pours very dark brown, just about black, with a thin-moderate tan head that is gone by the second sip and leaves no lace. The aroma is roasted malt with stale tobacco. The flavor continues the roasted malt and stale tobacco theme, but also includes a notable metallic twang. Medium bodied. Not worth finishing...and I didnt.
