1.7/5  rDev -46.2%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 1.5

A- poured a oak brown color with 1finger foam. Minimum lacing.

S- heavy cinnamon and brown sugar. Smell reminded me of roasted cinnamon nuts at Christmas. Not getting any sort of brownie scent at all. No chocolate or coffee scents at all.

T- first note was cinnamon. Very heavy on the cinnamon (too heavy for me.). Very sweet. No traditional porter flavors at all. A harsh artificial taste is there as well. Like a bad diet cookie.

M- medium with a very short finish

O- honestly, one of the most unpleasant beers I 've had in a long time. The artificial note on the end is not appetizing at all.

I am in the kitchen at Chez Woody, hanging out with m'main man, Horny Goat, telling him how much I dug his limited release Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter and he gets this big grin. He then gets on the horn, literally, with his Old Lady, this hot-looking blonde ewe with a great pair of udders, and tells her to bring over something special. She shows up with her "special" Brownie Porter, which she swears only has "love" as its secret ingredient. Man, I hope so, 'cause I gotta check-in with my P.O. next week and I can't be hot, dig?

From the bottle: "Craft Brewed in Wisconsin"; "Ale Brewed with Brown Sugar and Cinnamon with Vanilla and Cacao Nibs added".

I relaxed a little when I saw that the ingredients did not include anything untoward. Nor was I surprised that this came from Wisconsin, which is not known as "America's Dairyland" for nothing. Man, they got some real honey-honey milkmaids in that state, I'm tellin' ya!

I let the ewe pour for us and it turns out that she doesn't have any compunction about giving head! My glass contained a big, foamy finger of light-tan head that just sat there, defying me to do something, anything. I was making small talk with her since the Goat didn't like that we were so friendly all of a sudden. Glancing over, it settled into a light-brown color (SRM = > 13, < 17) with NE-quality clarity. Man, the nose was heavy on the vanilla and she told me that she likes to dab some behind each ear in lieu of perfume. No wonder the Goat is Horny! Man, I'd be in rut all the time if my Old Lady acted like that. Mouthfeel was big and full, not creamy, likesay, but effervescent. The flavor was cocoa powder, vanilla, cinnamon, but I could not discern the brown sugar, although it was plenty sweet. I suggested molasses to cut some of the sweetness and she agreed to give it a try in a future batch. The finish was somewhere between semi-sweet and semi-dry, but it was nowhere near as sweet as I was expecting. The cinnamon was not only an inspired touch, but it really cut some of the inherent sweetness of the other ingredients. I waved as the Goat and his ewe rode off on their hog and then some other magic started in on me. Oh man, I wonder if I can reschedule that meeting ...

3.45/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of roasted dark malt, vanilla, cocoa powder and a subtle hint of cinnamon.

The taste is of sweet dark malt, vague dark fruitiness. There is a hint of vanilla bean with some brown sugar. Cinnamon comes through in the aftertaste and lingers. Spicy finish with a bit of roast.

It's thin, but just above watery. Pretty smooth.

The flavors don't mesh together as well as they could. Still in all, it's not bad. Other than a hint of roast, leans more towards a spiced brown ale. Cinnamon is a bit much in the aftertaste. It's "different".

2.9/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 12oz. bottle-no exp. date- into a standard pint glass.
Cloudy amber in color, with a nice head of light tan foam.
Aroma-Faint toasted malt.
Taste-Flavors seem watered-down. Faint cinnamon and vanilla notes, muddled and unbalanced. Seems more like a brown ale than a porter.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance is a dark brown with ruby edges. There is a half finger of head that enjoyed some decent retention. The nose is nutty, but also oddly tart. The same tartiness is present in the flavor profile. The flavor profile is not very roasty – I can understand why some might classify this as a brown ale rather than a porter. The finish has caramel notes and may be the most enjoyable part of the tasting experience.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark brown color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, some notes of vanilla. Taste is chocolate, cinnamon, some vanilla, unique and pretty tasty. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a different and solid beer.
