Keg at the brewery, 9/2/16. Hazy dark brown, thin creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of roast, mint, earth, chocolate. The taste is chocolate, roasted malts, soy. Thin.

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.

Thanks to Blake for bringing the growler! Poured very deep brown, almost black, with a nice initial cap of yellowy-beige head.. left a light ring after a couple minutes. The aroma picked up lots of deeply-roasted dark chocolate and dark fruits.. a subtle smoke accent worked very well. The flavor picked up well-roasted darker fruits and semi-sweet chocolate at the core, with some cocoa powder hitting on the back-end.. mild sourness as well back there.. good stuff! Medium-bodied with a creamy malt backing and bitter coffee accents.. lots of fruity notes in there.. I very much enjoyed it!

On tap at the brewpub on 6/21/07: Pours a mostly opaque with dark mahogany edges and a small, creamy tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and milk chocolate with a hint of smoke. Body starts with a rich dark caramel viscosity and good mild plum complexity toward a lingering bittersweet roasty dark chocolate finish. A nice Baltic porter.

THX Kevin for bringing the growler: Deep brown hue with a small fizzy but lasting head. The aroma has notes of roasted and chocolate malt, some smoke, plum, and a rubbery off-aroma. The taste starts with rich milk chocolate and nutty character with a bit of ripe fruit. The finish is roasty and displays some coffee notes. The feel is dry and smooth. A pretty good beer that I was not expecting much from.

Huge snifter pour. Pitch black, big beige head. Baltic Porter? ( yep ). Big and sugary sweet, certainly not classical. Off chalky bandaid and chocolate aroma. Big, enjoyable, but just a touch off. Some vanilla tones. A little odd, cant put my finger on it. Still pretty decent. Some coffee tones.

JPDIPSO (6257) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Near black color with a small light tan head. Interesting aromas of pears and light toasted malts. A rather typical flavor profile with cocoa and dark toasted to roasted malt. A decent porter.

Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Sampled on draught at the brewpub in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a thick and creamy off-white head that slowly dissolves to a fine film and ring. Aroma of light roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and some flowery/grassy hops. Taste is heavy (full bodied), sweet with very little carbonation, with dark chocolate and molasses flavors. Finish is smooth, creamy with a slight dark malt flavor.
