Huge mouthfeel of chocolate and caramel malts, nutty dried fruit flavors with a big chocolate finish. It has bits of real panther in it...so you know its good!

Had a fresh growler of this filled for me yesterday, brought straight home and shared with friends.

A - Pretty standard opaque inky appearance, forms a nice creamy froth on top and it leaves some thick lace down the glass as its consumed.

S - Chocolate and malty sweetness, sweet milk. Very dessert-like. A bit more subdued with the chocolate than other chocolate brews I've had in the past.

T - Delivers with the sweetness and the chocolate, but it stops there. Just doesn't feel complete, something missing. Easy drinking though.

M - Really oily, and a flat unimpressive finish. Just OK for me.

O - I think its an interesting offering, I'd drink another esp. after dinner. San Tan seems to be getting better and better.

Sampled at 1702; February 2011
Arrives from the tap with a dark, concentrated brown color that shows a clear, rich brown hue when held up to the light. The head is a lightly browned, darker tan colored head. The aroma smells of toasted malt character that has lots of browned bread character. There is an underlying fruitiness that almost has a tartness to it and it reminds of plums, a suggestion of cherries and lightly roasted raisins.

Lightly sweet tasting and actually quite fruity with notes of plums and rum soaked raisins (though without the heat), accentuating brown sugar notes, chewy toasted brown grain flavors, lots of nutty notes (almost hazelnut like in character). At times the body of this can seem somewhat rich, but at others it seems like it is a bit on the thin side for a beer of this type; there is a touch of creaminess to the texture and the carbonation is fairly slight. There is a touch of herbal, definitely bitter (but not overly so) hop character in this beer that supports the more dominant malt / sweet character of this beer. A touch of dark grain character also seems to contribute a bit to the bitterness in the finish. As the beer warms a touch of cola like spiciness comes out and this seems to be accentuated by the lightly sweet malt and toasted grain edge to the finish.

Not bad, but it doesn't seem to quite do it for me either; the biggest thing for me is that it seems to get quite thin after only a couple sips and the flavors suggest / require a big, chewy beer to support the character properly.

A dark dark reddish colored beer rests below a big tan head. A nice lacing and a small biscuity mound remain long after the head has receded on this American Porter.

Dark chocolates, light black licorice and a hint of alcohol aroma.

Roasted grain malts with a edge towards dark bakers chocolate taste with just a hint of hops bitterness.

A dry aftertaste on this full bodied beer with a light darker chocolate taste staying around.

Decent tasting easy drinking porter, worth a try. I think pairing this with the right food and it would only get much better.

More like a brown ale, IMO, but pretty tasty. The chocolate came out real well in this one.
