4.09/5 rDev +5.4%
A deep brown/black in color, finger of tan head, creamy bits of lacing left behind. Smells awesome.. Lots of sweet chocolate, bready notes, and dark roastyness. Almost smells like Danish rye bread.
The flavor is again, on par with aroma. Lots of sweet milk chocolate, a good amount of roasted bitterness and bready notes. Medium in body and medium carbonation.
This beer is excellent for its style. Thicker than your average porter, as creamy as a heavier milk stout.. Full of flavor, what more could you want?

3.7/5 rDev -4.6%
The color is a very dark brown, just the very slightest light making it in. A somewhat spritzy, moderately tight medium brown head begins at just less than half a finger and fades a bit quickly but leaves behind decent patching and spotting.
The aroma has a certain steeliness to it with a tang and a bit of cocoa. Some wheat makes for a sort of dry, cracker-like element.
Chocolate comes out much more in the flavor, and more tangibly over the wheat. It's rich and sweet as well as powdery. The base is malty with just a hint of roast. Chalk and a light tanginess lie gently underneath.
The medium body holds a semi-dry feel with a hint of char that goes dryer. The end is gently ashy and, overall, the beer is crisp without biting too hard and runs smoothly on the tongue.

12 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a weizen glass
A - This beer pretty much looks black. It is capped with an inch of mocha head.
S - I get some cocoa and dark chocolate.
T - The taste is more focused on the dark chocolate. I get some milk chocolate intermittently. I slight unsweetened chocolate finish.
M - Medium
O - It's a pretty tasty brew. I would not hesitate to buy it again.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Bottled 1/29/14
A- Pours a dark chocolate with a medium brown head.
S- Dark chocolate, light dark coffee, light dark fruit, slight alcohol.
T- Similar to aroma, dark chocolate, dark coffee, pretty strait forward porter. Tastes kinda like a mini version of Publican Porter.
M- Here is where you notice the wheat. It has both a medium heavy porter mouthfeel at the beginning then ends light like a hefe-wiezen.
O- A pretty decent take on the style. The wheat kinda makes it an easier to drink porter compared to say Founders or Edmund Fitzgerald.
