Pours a dark brown with a light tan head. Pleasant roasted malt flavor. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, this beer is easy to drink - although it is probably less in summer than in spring or fall. Enjoyable.

Nice roasted malt taste with slight bitterness that quickly goes away. Great head and nose. Lightly carbonated. More on the milk stout side than a typical porter.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
This beer is a dark brown colored brew with a medium sized off-white colored head. The aroma is a distinct blend of malt, hops and cocoa. the taste is really good and is a fine example of an American Porter. The palate is a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- A really good porter that is another example of a fine beer from Back Forty

Great head and lacing. Very carbonated compared to most porters I've had. Not a bad thing. Nice zippy taste/feel from the carbonation and hops. Nice smoky taste from the malts. Definitely a great beer here! My first brew from Back Forty. Cheers!

Pours a brown color with light tan colored head. Roasted malt mostly on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little bit of burnt char malt. Very thin on the mouthfeel.
