This beer is as close to black as you can get without actually being black. It pours a nice creamy chocolate brown head. Good retention and great lacing is observed. Beautiful aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. The taste is very pleasing. Bittersweet chocolate tones mix with black coffee and even vanilla bean to create a wonderful taste. The bitterness level of this porter is about perfect, even though I can enjoy more bitterness in a porter. Great roasted malt taste. Bitterness stems from hops as well as blackened malts. Very slight burnt toast present also. Mouthfeel is silky smooth. Like velvet. Body might be just a titch low checking in at about medium. Drinkability is high given the fact that this tastes as though it were hand-pulled. Low carbonation and great taste.

Could Lake Louie be one of the better breweries in Wisconsin and maybe the best? Quite possibly yes. I've had 3 brews and they have all checked in at 4.5 or higher. (Scotch Ale = 4.6, Pale Ale = 4.5, Porter = 4.5). The best brewery you've never heard of.
