S: Chocolate maltly scents are very abundant
T: Slightly smokey, also has the chocolatey flavors there. Good tasing beer
M: Smooth easy drinking, possibly a little overcarbonated
D: Good porter, very tasty. Would have this again if I could find it in my area

Stumbled across this small microbrewery and tasting room on our recent trip through Montana and had to sample each of their 3 offerings.
An as-of-yet unnamed porter, the brewery is having a "Name the Porter" contest where the winner would get a keg of beer.
Served in a logoed Flathead Lake pint glass, this is a deep dark colored ale. Mocha colored foam over a black liquid. Coffee and chocolate aromas fill the nose. Taste is also well balanced with lots of complexity. More coffee, cocoa, with just a touch of hops to keep it from becoming overpowering. Full bodied mouthfeel, delicious. A very good porter, and nice fit with their other offerings that include a pale ale and scottish amber.
If you are headed past Flathead Lake, definatley worth a stop.

This is owner Terry Leonard’s favorite beer! Try to imagine a very tiny chocolate, coffee-like, miniature beer grenade exploding in your mouth. This ale is deep and complex and it's in need of a proper name. We will be having a "Name our Porter" contest at the Grand Opening...so stay tuned to our website for details as the lucky winner takes home their very own keg of beer!

ROBUST PORTER – The style features a moderately strong malt flavor, derived from black malt (chocolate/coffee flavors). The hop bitterness is low, yet present to create a harmonious balance that is complimented by a full body and mouth feel. Robust Porter is a style that is open to the brewer's interpretation; it may be distinguished from the style STOUT as lacking a strong roasted barley character. Our Brew Master has designed a robust porter that is delicious, and appreciated by beer novices and connoisseurs alike. This ale is great to recommend with dessert.
