3.5/5  rDev -9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Had out of the bottle at a local bowling alley...was served around 35º.

A=From what I could tell, it was a nice reddish brown.

S=Malt and cocoa.

T=The first gulp reminded me a bit more of cocoa powder or chocolate milk than beer--chocolate and malt, with a little sweetness; perhaps a bit of a cola taste as well. Cream came forward later on.

M=A bit too watery for a porter, and very lightly carbonated...but would make a decent session beer. Alcohol finally hit me about 3/4 of the way through.

O=More of a session beer than what I seek out in a porter...body was just a little too light for me, and the malt flavor was also a bit lacking. A nice beer, but still nowhere as near as good as Great Lakes' offering. Probably the second best porter from Wisconsin that I've tried, just slightly behind Wisconsin Brewing Company's porter. Worth a try if looking for a slightly lighter version of a porter.

Bottle from a friend. My first beer from Oso. Pours dark brown to black with a half finger off white head. Aroma of strong chocolate goodness with some heavy roast malt in the background. Flavor follows with chocolate as the highlight and plenty of bitter roasted malt on the finish. Just a bit of dark fruit to go along. Velvety smooth mouthfeel with lowish carbonation. Very nice body. Overall a solid porter.
