My first Sand Creek ale isn't a good start.
Badger Porter has a thin mouth. High carbonation makes it worse. Easy to drink, not easy to buy again.

To light in color for a standard porter, light auburn, lots of floating particulates. Smells oaky, dry, slightly sour. Has to be Infected, Drain pour.

Pours a dark brown color with light tan head. Coffee, roasted malts, and raw cocoa on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with coffee and chocolate, light sweetness too.

L: Pours fairly clear chestnut brown under a thuin cream to light tan foam collar.
S: More brown sugar and darker sugars than chocolate or coffee aromas, faint chocolate but no harsh roast aromas.
T: Chocolate but dry and not sweet and more in the middle than in the front, leasding into the after taste. Some graininess. Finishes dry with a touch of tartness.
F: Very creamy, medium full body, with very fine soft carbonation.
O: This is a fairly tame porter. The chocolate is there but fairly toned down, no coffee, the hops are mild and the alcohol is moderate.It is not huge and in your face but it is easy to drink.
