My first review. And what better way than to start with some porters?

Poured into a pint glass, the color is not quite black, with hints of rust color-red when held up to the light. A decent quarter inch light tan head dissipates quickly, leaving little lacing.

Smells of caramel and malt, reminiscent somehow of some German beers I've had in the past. The hops don't really seem to come through in the smell. It smells delicious, but seems a bit two-dimensional. Maybe lacking some complexity.

Now onto the taste... The taste offers a little bit more complexity than the smell, and I was pleasantly surprised by a good balance between a bit of a bitter bite, and a smooth, chocolatey malt flavor. The alcohol is nicely disguised in the taste, and comes out just a bit on the aftertaste. Definitely not bad!

There's a good bit of carbonation, which helps bring out the bitterness in the taste. At the same time, it's got a nice smooth texture which nicely compliments the malt.

Overall, I'm happy with Old Leghumper. The smell could be a little more interesting to match the taste, but this is a very drinkable beer, and I would probably be interested in getting ahold of some more down the road. However, I won't be rushing out to buy a case of it any time soon. There are just too many other beers yet to try!
