Festival tap: labeled as Pierce Street porter. Mollasses nose from a dark brown porter. Some peaty aromas. medium bodied and well balanced by some bitterness at the finish, reminded me of Arcadias porter. DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Pierce St. Porter. Black body, creamy light tan head. The flavor leans towards coffee-roast. It also features apple-y esters, and kind of a combination of grassy and sprucey hops. Lacks that traditional porter lactic tartness. Slightly rough, dry finish with some sweet chocolate notes. Minimal aroma, possibly due to its low level of carbonation. nuplastikk (6420) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Tap at Stonefly. Brown-black, some light shines through the edges. Steady creamy beige head. Sweet chocolate aroma, some coffee. A big, rich Porter, lots of chocolate and coffee notes. Bold and roasty, oily coffee edge. The bitterness really brings a sharp edge to it. Some fruity amber malt in the background. OK.

Deep, nearly opaque chocolate brown appearance with tan ridges for a head. Aroma is pumpernickel, unsweetened chocolate, unsalted pecans and a cedar clothes chest. Chocolate and roasted malts typify the flavor, as expected. A touch of bitterness and a near vinegar consistency. Another brewpub porter, or stout, or whatever’s chic at the moment. Descent, but not stirring or original at all. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2009
On tap at the Stonefly brewpub. Dark brown with a quickly diminishing tan head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malts and light chocolate and coffee. Taste of roasted and dark malts, chocolate and caramel. Kind of thin mouth feel, an okay porter.

Appearance of mud with no head. Light coffee aroma. Chocolate flavor that’s quite bitter, with watery malts. Not bad. keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Dark brown color with a half-finger tan head. Smells like a porter: chocolate, toasted malts, slight hops aroma. Tastes like a drinkable but totally unimpressive porter. Kind of smoky, although that may have been the bar itself. I agree with previous raters: very thin mouthfeel bordering on watery. prosqtor (408) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Beerfest in Chilton. This beer is exactly what it claims to be: A decent Porter. It has a nice coffee aroma and flavor, and is thin in body with a dark color and beige-tan head. tress00 (6) - Lindenhurst, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2013 does not count
Quickly dissipating white head that leave a little lacing. Slight roastiness and maltiness in a thin body. Barely noticeable hop taste and aroma. A drinkable robust porter but not as robust as others I’ve had. A decent beer that can be drank outside of the cold winter days. Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Served on draught at the Wisconsin Micro-brewers Beerfest in Chilton, Wisconsin. Pours a semi hazy dark brown brew with a thin beige head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and off-white ring. Aroma of roasted dark multi-grain malts, some coffee, dark chocolate and roasted nuts. Taste is medium to full bodied, light carbonated with flavors of toasted dark malt, dark chocolate, mild coffee and some nuts. Finish is a little light with a mild dark malt aftertaste that quickly disappears.
