3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours deep brown with a khaki head. Aroma shows light to moderate roast, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, and lots of coffee. Flavor shows plenty of roast as well as some nutiness and a touch of earth.
Overall body is light to moderate and the finish is fairly balanced. The aroma delivered much more than the flavor, but overall not too shabby.
Dark black. Mild roasted coffee. Mild all around. Ok Tasted at dorans bottle share. Strykzone (7800) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Sampled at Doran’s. Dark brrown with some amber. A beige head. Earthy aroma that has grain and soft coffee. A more robust flavor of coffee, earth, and grains. Moderate bitter bite is grains. Floral and citrus hop notes. Decent stuff. Lemke10 (996) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2016
This pours a thin, dark brown color with little to no carbonation. Aroma is mild with robust caramel tones. The taste is thin, slightly robust and very chalky. Granted this was a old bottle I had laying around so take that at face value but I think it was laying around because I didn’t care for the previous bottles. Much better porter options out in the market place. jandd1983 (4690) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Bottle. It poured a dark brown color with a light tan head. The aroma was of roasted coffee, caramel and some chocolate. The taste was similar to the aroma with bitter coffee, some chocolate and caramel malts. Nicely done. 574deadzone (1420) - North Central, Indiana, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Pours very dark brown to black with not much of a cream colored head that leaves some stringy ropes of lace that look like the Isle of Man flag. Nose involves roasted malt, some dark chocolate, some milk chocolate, a bit of mustiness, some peppery spice, some meatiness. Decently sweet, lightly bitter. Medium to light bodied, creamy yet a bit watery, softer carb, finishing a bit twangy with milk chocolate and dust. Kind of a weak brew, but my first from Door County, WI, which is pretty cool.

Got this beer from a good friend. Got it at the brewery. So I think this is as fresh as it can be. Malty taste, hints of chocolate and coffee. Black as night. Tan flothy head stays a while. A very good beer. 6ROW (473) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2015

Bottle. It poured a translucent brown with a beige head. The aroma was roasted malt and coffee. The flavor was the same with hints of cocoa, roasted nuts and some star anise. The taste was a balance between bitter upfront and sweetness on the end. Cousin_Larry (895) - - MAY 23, 2015

[Bottle] Darker brown color with a fizzy beige head on top. Looks a lot like cola. Aromas of nut, weak coffee, cocoa and star anise. Flavors of roasted malts, caramel, grain husks, earthy hops, cocoa, watered down coffee and light spice. Dry finish. Rather thin. Tasting notes from 8/2014.
