Pours to a dark brown/black body with a dense bubble-spotted tan head. The flavor is pretty tasty. Chocolate, roasty malts, dark fruits, really deep roasty black patent. Very well balanced components. The aroma is roasty black patent and barley. The palate is rich, sweet, roasty, lightly smokey.

On tap at the Silver Creek Brew Pub. Poured a dark black with a large sized tan head. Aromas of licorice, dark fruits, chocolate, and light roast. Tastes of licorice, raisins, and chocolate. Very light coffee finish - overall this Porter was on the sweeter side. JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2006
Tulip at brewpub. Nice frothy tan head. Dark cola body.
Aroma has licorice, roast wood, grape jam.
Nice sticky roasty licorice flavor, stale wet wood, odd un-porter like sweetness (but good, maybe a baltic porter?). Honey? Earthy hops with roasty and slight coffee in the finish.
This is a great beer… a nice introduction to Silver Creek.
