Served in a standard pint glass at about 40º.

A=Frothy foam and rich dark brown color...very inviting.

S=Faint but sweet...maybe some leather or tobacco.

T=Sweet and creamy...just the right amount of carbonation...just a tad lighter roast than I like.

M=Good...not quite as thick as I'd like, but...

D=Unlike most porters, I think I could drink 3-4 of these at a sitting due to the low carbonation and the thinner body.

Again, a favorite from my favorite category, but not brewed in Wisconsin...starting to think Wisconsin brewers can't brew porters as well as those from other states....

I was thoroughly impressed with the superb porter flavor of this ale, all aspects of which make an uncommonly forward presentation. It is brown in appearance with a blush of purple and a camelhair head. An aroma of toffee and roasted grains wafts upwards enticingly. The flavor has roasted goodness integrated into strong malt sweetness with a brown malt finish. It is potent in its focused design, yet not intimidating.

Formidable and proud. Alongside Harmon's and Flyers' porter, Scuttlebutt's ranks as among the best in the Puget Sound region.

Very drinkable porter with strong coffee and chocolate flavours. Good head of about 2cm from a 12oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass. Smells dark and wet, like a good porter should. Mouthfeel is average... not too chewy and not too light.

My new favourite porter!

I have to drive to New Jersey to get this at a Total Wine. Of the 23 US porters I have tried this one is the most sessionable and is therefore my favorite.

The all important aroma and taste is all rich dark chocolate with coffee accents. A medium body porter that drinks smooth without any harshness. As the chocolate flavor diminishes the roasted malt and coffee linger to leave your palate wanting to take another gulp. This is a year round porter for dark beer lovers.

T - roasted malts, touch of dried fruit, coffee and cocoa.

M - think feel but a good amount of tingle all over the tongue and top of throat.

O - tasty while light, a good combo for cinsistant drinking.

Beer pours a liquid black. The head is a decent sized mocha latte brown. The smell blasts you with roasted chocolates and buttery caramels. A slight floral hop is present. The taste is roasted chocolate coffee beans, nice toasty yeast. This is perfect with a nice steak and potatoe dinner, also great with a cheescake. Very nice.
