Bahamas

2.6/5  rDev -24.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a dark, inky, black with a thinnish (1/2 cm), medium brown, frothy head. The head quickly fades away to nothing--not even a ring persists where the beer contacts the glass, and there are few signs of significant carbonation. Looks "thin" or watery in the glass. Nice aroma of both chocolatey and roasted malts, with a hint of coffee, but all of it is a bit subdued. Tastes of roasted malts, but with a unpleasant burnt bitterness which lingers well into the finish. Much like it looks, this feels quite light in body, but is not a "thirst quenching" beer which I might like to be a bit on the watery side (i.e. lawnmower beer). Overall not a very good example of a porter and not a beer I'll be having again.

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.
