This dark American Porter is one of the most drinkable beers of its kind. It's coffee flavor, along with a robust smell and wonderful texture make it very enjoyable, especially during those fall and winter months. It is a little thick to drink more than a few of them in an evening, but then again, so are most great dark beers.

Pours dark chestnut brown to black with a thick tan head that leaves trailing lace.

The smell is of rich chocolate with roasted coffee, caramel and earthy tones.

The taste is of sweet chocolate with roasted coffee. Caramel/toffee add to sweetness, which is balanced by roasted coffee, nutty tones and a mild earthy hop touch.

It is thick for a porter, but smooth. Some alcohol shows its potency - but still, it is creamy smooth.

This borders a strong stout. I had it before I ordered the Beef Wellington, had another with it, but it would have gone well with the desert. It does have a malted chocolate character. Thick, creamy and delicious!

Had it on-tap at Joey Girard's in Greendale, Wisconsin.

Serving type: on-tap
