UPDATED: MAY 1, 2011 On tap at Silver Creek brewpub. Dark brown with a medium brown topper. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, dark fruit, caramel and chocolate. Taste of chocolate, dark fruit, dark roasted malts, some coffee and a touch of spices. Very good Baltic porter. 1FastSTi (3358) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2006
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. MIBRomeo (2579) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2006
dark pour thick tan head, weak lacing. Overly burnt coffee bottom of the pot aroma, w/ coccoa powder. Palate is very average. Flavor is bittersweet coccoa, very dry some nice roasty malts. A pretty good tasting porter.
Thanks to Kevin for sharing. rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2011

On tap at the brewpub. Pint pour. Opaque dark brown color with a small tan head . The aroma is big and rich with mocha, chocolate, roasted grains and some sweetened coffee. The taste is similar to the nose, lots of dark roasted grains, mocha and some spicy raisins and dates. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and slightly sweet. overall: Very impressive, very tasty.

Draft at the source. Deep brown-black pour with tan head. Aroma is gentle roasted malt with some decent dark fruit esters, caramel, and nutty toasted malt. Flavor is a clean chocolate roast with more caramel and nutty toasted biscuit. Trail of faint dark fruit. Lingering clean, coffee-type roasted malt. Would agree with a previous rater’s opinion of Baltic-type qualities and clean profile. Nice showing. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Pours a dark brown almost black colour. Head is fairly large, beige. Aroma is definately porter like, but i dont know if i would go as far as saying spiced. Or the taste either. Slightly metallicy, the only spice i can faintly pick up was a hint of clove. Other then that, a classic porter taste, but a little weak.

Tap. Sweet raisin and chocolate syrup aroma with a roasty bite. Black body under a dark tan head. Smooth dark chocolate, plum and coffee bean in teh flavor. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Wraps up with raisin and espresso. A wonderfully fruity, sweet espresso-like porter. 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.
