My first foray into the newest brewery to hit the northwoods. Very small operation and supplying draft to only one account for now but they seem to have a good thing going and a brewmaster who knows his stuff it seems.

A-Pours a nice deep, dark brown...creamy tan head laces the glass nicely...

S-Very nice roasty aroma....coffee...and dark chocolate.

T-A lot of dark chocolate and roasted malts...

M-Light side of medium bodied....clean.... one of the driest porters I've ever had on the finish.

O-Good, solid, dryish porter with modest weight but a nice roasty flavor and aroma with some dark chocolate notes as well...very clean...nothing off at all...nice effort here...good drinker...quality beer.

Had the pleasure of enjoying this beer on tap during a recent visit to ZAP's. It has a dark body, almost opaque. Deep crimson,mahogany hues when held to a light source. The chocolate brown head leaves moderate amounts of lace. Awesome aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Taste is spot on for a robust porter. Not a huge beer, nor should it be. Flavors are very distinct and nice....milk chocolate, java, roast and a little vanilla. Medium body, lightly carbonated. Quite drinkable and quite flavorful. Solid porter. Nice dry finish with slight roasted astringency. Chalky as well, which I like. Great intro into this new brewery. Can't wait to try more.
