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.

Poured on tap Nitro. Beautifully cascading brown Nitro carbonation. Thick creamy pure white head. Chocolate aroma. Big chocolate flavor. The Nitro makes it creamy. Heavy full feeling. Lots of chocolate with some roasted aftertaste.

Craft porters are hard to do right. This one has it where it needs it! Full on, yet gentle coffee flavors await, with an clean, smooth, not bitter finish. This just became a winter fave.

Tap at Spuyten. Loads of delicious coffee, roasty, lightly sweet, chocolate, roasted malt, prunes, raisins. This is really damn good.

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.

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.
