A deep dark porter with a thin dark brown head. In aroma, a smooth caramel chocolate with vinous notes, very mice coffee grinds, well done. In mouth, a nice herbal chocolate with mocha coffee, chewy, nice. Bottle from Rileys, Madison, 1.99$.

Poured a very dark red/brown with virtually no head and minimal lacing. Aroma was of roasted malts and coffee. Taste was similar with a roasted malt/coffee front end and a sour, moderate bitter backend. Palate was good. Overall, I thought this was more of a stout than a porter.

12 oz bottle from beer fridge at the lake...pours black with a tan head...sweet chocolate in the nose and initial sip...yum! They call this a PORTER and I guess they know...but its a sweet stout to me...definitely a tasty one.

jgb9348 (5915) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Rich deep brown coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall tan head and some nice coffee coloured highlights at the bottom. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, earth, coffee, chocolate and a ton of cherry and deep fruit smells - this one is very nice and rich. Medium to Full-bodied; Very nice rich chocolate and roasted malt flavours dominate, with a good earthy and caramel flavoured finish. Aftertaste is quite complex with coffee, chocolate, pit fruits, cherries and some peat coming through. Overall, a very nice porter - perhaps one of the best ones Ive had recently, with good flavours throughout, a nice body and a good complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Three Cellars in Franklin, Wisconsin on 05-September-2012 for US$1.89 sampled at home in Washington on 19-November-2012.

The beer pours a thick opaque black, with a slightly brown head and little visible carbonation. The best thing about this porter is the roasted malt taste that hits your tongue and continues throughout the sip, venturing into a coffee dominated, slightly alcoholic aftertaste. This is an enjoyable and easy porter to sip, and with just enough complexion to have you thinking throughout every sip.

Great looking beer. Black with a toasty coloured and creamy head. Beer smells of coffee, caramel, chocolate. Taste is sharp and full bodied with coffee and burnt toast. Taste ends a bit bitter, but full. Real delicious, but full flavoured and bold.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. The pour yields a ruby-tinted dark cola color. The thinnest of beige heads rest on top. The aroma is ripe with fresh breads, roasted malts, cocoa beans, dirt. The mouth is a little thin for my liking. There needs to be a bit more depth to this I think. The bubbles are too prominent. There is a lot of chocolate in this beer. Definitely the main player here. Chocolate malt, bitter coffee, grounds, and a bit of alcohol on the back end. This beer is simple and doesnt bring much complexity, but thats okay.

I think I first sampled this at the Hops on the Hill beer/food festival in Green Bay/De Pere, summer 2012. I believe this one was paired with the mini chocolate cupcakes. Anyway, actually drinking straight from bottle (unusual for me) because Im short a glass right now. This beer is delicious. Just a huge, rich, decadent porter. Chocolate, coffee, roast, everything is on full display. Not exactly sessionable, but this thing is a flavor bomb. Awesome. Tons of bitterness sticks on the tongue--straddles the line between hops and dark chocolate. Will need to try from a glass some time.

8/10/12. 12oz bottle thanks to cbfobes! Black pour with a nice tan head that laces plenty. Dusty chocolate and coffee aroma with touches of fruitiness and sweetness. Smooth milk chocolate with touches of coffee, cream, and a hint of fruit.
