COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wisconsin Brewing’s Brown Robust Porter made with Barriques coffee. Blending craft beer and coffee isn’t a new idea, but getting the desired result — a coffee brew that’s smooth and flavorful from the first sip to the last drop — has remained elusive. That is, until now. #006 PORTER JOE™ is the result of a collaborative effort by WBC brewmaster Kirby Nelson and Barriques coffee master Rob Jeffries, who hit upon the perfect combination of coffee blend and brewing technique. "It’s not so much a ’secret’ as it is the combination of the right techniques and the right brews," says Kirby. "Our #003 Brown & Robust Porter is bold and flavorful. Barriques’ special blend brings a wonderful richness with no bitter coffee aftertaste. In PORTER JOE™, those two brews compliment each other naturally." So do the two companies. WBC is proud of our Badger State heritage. Barriques is an active and engaged member of the community. That’s a match made in locally-sourced heaven.

arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddisb black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, hints of slight earth into a bit of ash, slight dark fruit with a big hit of coffee. Taste was a mix of cocoa, caramel, toffee into a bit of ash, roast, lots of coffee, finishing slightly sweet, slightly bitter.

GIJOE (1251) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Pours almost black with red hints in the light. Huge frothy cappuccino head. Copious lacing. Nose is toasted grain and coffee. A hint of fresh-baked yeasty bread. Taste is fairly sweet with a heavy black coffee aftertaste. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottled. Poured medium-deep brown with a smoked beige head. The aroma picked up semi-sweet cold cofee with some earthy and very slight vegetal character. The flavor found stale coffee grounds, light cocoa, and vanilla at the core, picking up some green coffee sourness on the finish. Light-medium bodied and a bit sharp on the palate.. this was just OK.

madvike (3293) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle - Pours deep black with brown highlights and a foamy tan head. Nose is milk chocolate, a bit of hazelnut, mellow roast coffee, and a bit of milk. Taste is nuttier--milky hazelnut, a bit of dry dark roast, mellow coffee, and a long, iced coffee finish. Thinnish with smooth carbonation. Wow...WBC’s best beer so far.
