On tap at North Peak in TC. Named Mission Point Porter in the Pub.

Brownish black with a nice dense one inch head and ample lace.

Smells of dark fruit and chocolate with a hint of coffee.

Taste is a nice medium bodied blend of chocolate and raosted malts with a toach of coffee in the finish. Lightly hopped with a nice creamy texture.

Very drinkable. If at the North Peak seek this one out. They should bottle this stuff...

A blackish brown brew with a thin tan head that has nice lacing and retention. The smell is roasted chocolate, coffee and some dark fruits and spices. The taste starts out with some roasted dark chocolate followed by a slight coffee flavor and than some sweetness from the fruit kicks in before chocolate comes back for the final taste. Mouthfeel is rather sticky on the lips and tongue, but still rather easy drinking. Overall in excellent tasting porter that I will be drinking often when going to North Peak. This is a must try for anyone living in or visiting Traverse City,
