Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance- The beer pours a deep brown color with a two finger cream colored head. The head has a great level of retention but fades slowly over time to give a nice level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of chocolate and roasted malt aromas. Mixed with these are some sweet aromas of caramel and vanilla as well as a very light coffee smell.
Taste – Overall the taste is relatively light. The taste starts out with some roasted malt and a light chocolate flavor. As the taste advances some lighter notes of vanilla come to the tongue. In the end a greater chocolate flavor comes to the tongue and mixes with a lighter coffee flavor to leave a subtle cocoa and roasted coffee flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is below average in terms of thickness and creaminess and the carbonation level is rather average. While the carbonation for the style was nice, the body of the beer was too watery for the style
Overall – It had a nice smell and look, but due to the lightness of flavors (which actually were nice) and the very weak body, not really the best porter out there. While not that flavorful, I suppose it would function well as a session style porter, although when you want a porter usually you are not looking for something of a session drink.

Boulder Beer Planet Porter has a medium, creamy, beige head, a very dark, almost black, brown appearance, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark-roasted barley malt, charcoal, sweetness, and black cherry. Taste is of those elements, with the noticeable char, yet little bitterness is detected. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Planet Porter finishes semi-dry, rich, sweet, and good.
