This was given to me as a gift, I love porters so I have high hopes for this guy. Poured in a nonic. Never heard of this brewery before.

A: Poured a deep dark brown, basically black, with a thin tan head and bits of lacing

S: Smelled of chocolate, barley, malt sugars, brown sugars, some wheat and yeast, along with a bit of hops

T: Pretty rich flavor, fairly sweet, brown and malt sugars, barley, chocolate as well, tasting a bit ore hop than I would've expected

M: Little more carbonated than I would like, but it is well balanced with the flavor, adds a bit of crispness to the rich, full bodied flavors

O: This being y first beer from Central Waters, I would say good job, it was very enjoyable and allowed me to relax a bit while I did some work. A very good porter.

Part of a Variety Pack I made up while touring CW! 12 oz, Nov 2012, bottle poured into Snifter

A- Jet black with thick 2 finger tan head. Tons of Yeast sediment floating throughout…should be getting plenty of B Vit with this brew!

S- Toasted brown malt, chocolate, vanilla and bourbon notes with some subtley lingering hoppy spices.

T- Great coffee flavor. Dark chocolate, toasted bready/biscuit flavors. Deliciously warming on a cold Wisco winter night.

M- Medium body, creamy and smooth

O- A fantastic American Porter. A delicious Winter Beer with excellent flavor and balance.

12 oz bottle into a DFH signature glass. Bottled on March 2012. Nearly a year old and it had some goop on the bottom of the bottle, mmm goop. Thank Wes for the extra!

A - Pours a pitch black body, a rather dark porter that shows just a hint of brown on the edges when held up to the light. One finger of off white foam with some real nice lacing and retention.

S - Bitter coffee beans and smooth milk chocolate. A touch of roasted malt and vanilla. Smells a lot like a malted milk ball. Real nice!

T - Milk chocolate, coffee and cream, and lasting roasted mats. Not as great as the nose.

M - Thin to medium bodied with ample carbonation. Pretty spot on for a porter.

O - The char gets to be a bit too dominating on the aftertaste, but this is otherwise a nice porter. Its held up very well considering its almost a year old.
