Sample at the tap room. Dark brown color with a medium foamy beige head that diminishes steadily to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted coffee, malt and chocolate. Light body with flavors of strong coffee, dark chocolate and malt. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Decent overall. tutal (11) - La Crescent, Minnesota, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Tasted from a bottle poured into a tulip glass. Headbanger (4023) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Aroma - Very little: some roasted malt, but not a lot coming through
Appearance - dark brown with ruby notes, a very light, almost white head which quickly dissapates
Flavor - Big on roast and slight alcohol, very little malt, almost no hop presence (which is to style)
Mouthfeel - Thin body which isn’t helped by the excessive carbonation which goes well beyond "moderately high" - it seemed to be above 3 volumes
Overall - I almost wonder if this should be classified as other kind of beer. It has far too thin of a body and hardly any malt to call this a robust porter.
16oz draft 5/27/14 (The Town-Aurora)-Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste of the same with the coffee being very prominent. This full bodied brew is well balanced and damn tasty. crossovert (14019) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Draft. Fairly dry and roasty brew, entry of coffee and I like the lower gravity treatment. kaser (6409) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Had this from draft at farmhouse in Evanston haven't heard of the brewery. Good beer. Black thick pour with sticky off white head. Expresso and nutty aroma. Heavy coffee taste but overall a smooth and easy drinking porter. Would like to try more of their beer

On tap at Vintage. Poured very dark brown with light cream head. Pretty impressive coffee aroma with the usual choc roast. Light carb med bod. Roasty choc taste with bitter sweet coffee. Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2014
On draught at the new Wisconsin Brewing Company tap room in Verona, Wisconsin. Pours a clear dark brown colored brew with a fast dissipating beige head that dissipates to an off-white ring with spotty lacing. Aroma of toasted caramel and chocolate malt, some floral hops with more coffee presence than the regular robust porter. Taste is medium bodied, average carbonation with flavors of toasted chocolate malt, mocha coffee and even some Easter egg chocolate (with editable wax) presence. Finish has a short lived noble hop bitterness followed by a lingering coffee aftertaste. jmagnus87 (3302) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Draft at Olympic. From notes. Loads of coffee with milk and dark chocolate. Wow, awesome beer. Can’t wait until I start seeing better distro around these parts. drpimento (3801) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Pretty good; easy drinking; balanced. Lots of lace & long lasting head. Flavored are nicely blended. Good clean finish.

My favorite beer from WBC. What’s nice about this one is it is easy to drink and is still packed with an awesome coffee punch to the taste buds. I love the big heavy imperial stouts infused with coffee, but with those you drink one and you are done. Porter Joe is has just as much coffee flavor, if not more than most of those big beers, but you don’t get full. I’d recommend stopping over at the brewery and checking out the new facility while drinking one of these.
