Boulder planet porter was served from the nitro tap at Black Sparrow. It arrived thick and rich, more stout than porter. The nose was all molasses and coffee. The taste chocolate, with sweet malts that ended slowly in a medium bitterness. The chocolate taste contrasted nicely with the coffee nose, offering an interesting experience. Rich thick mouthfeel, creamy and buttery, aided by nitro tap but not over done or dependent on the nitro pour. Delicious, coming from someone who does not enjoy most porters and measures them all against Brother Thelonius.
Don't know if the Nitro tap at Black Sparrow punched this up a notch or twelve, but I'm not a big porter fan and I thought this was fantastic. Perhaps that's part of my preference profile: an AIPA drinker responding among the porter quaffers.
Serving type: nitro-tap

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.
Serving type: bottle
