45 Fathoms Porter has a dark brown body that is opaque at its core, and ruby colored around the edges. The brown head is a finger or two high, and very solid looking. Both retention and lacing are very good.

The aroma is a hint of hops and a lot of roasted malts.

This is a solid porter from Naked Dove. A slight hop flavor up front is followed by large roasted flavors. A bit of sweetness from lighter malts makes an appearance as well. Hints of coffee are next, but the roasted malts are really the star of show here.

Smooth and creamy, with a very good mouthfeel overall.

This was my first beer from Naked Dove, and I will definitely try more as I find them. Overall, this is a good porter and well-made beer.

A very smooth yet flavorful (coffee and dark chocolate), easy-drinking porter. I was really surprised at how mellow the mouthfeel was. Not harsh at all like some porters can be, but not skimpy when it comes to taste. Another hit from the local brewery!

The beer pours a dark brown color with a thick frothy tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is excellent. It has a dry, roasted scent that boasts of special roast and crystal malts. The taste is good. It has a bitter hop bite up front along with a dry roasted malt finish. It goes down easy with a thin, satisfying finish. The mouthfeel is decent. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a very drinkable porter with excellent hop notes.

so excited to try this new almost local brewery to where I live. The fingerlakes just aren't about wine anymore with Naked Dove's presence

A- pours a nice opaque body with a fine looking mocha brown head that slowly resides. A fair amount foam still lingers on the top and blends in well with the dark look

S- very impressive blend of roasted malt and mildly smokey tones that have a bitter coffee scent as well. The scent is very robust and prevalent with some chocolate themes too. There is no slap of alcohol and I don't mind that at all

T- the same roasty flavors emerge in the taste and boy is it good! All the attributes of a well crafted porter emerge. There some bitter flavors throughout that taste that eventually finishes with some dryness. All the while, there are great coffee flavors throughout. Without the alcohol you usually find in a high end porter.... this brew has got the profile

M- medium bodied and almost coating your mouth with flavor. A good feel

D- 45 Fathoms is one a fantastic porter from another upstate brewery! This porter is unbelievably tasty and well crafted with a porter's attributes. I am extremely impressed with this brew. Now if I can only find a way to get these guys in Syracuse! A highly recommended drinkable porter

Had this on tap in a pint glass.
Dark as night, with a decent head.
Aroma was a very nice blend of smoke, roasted malts, milk chocolate and bitter coffee.
Medium bodied porter. Taste is high on smoke flavor and roasted malts with hints of chocolate coming through.
This is a very tasty and delicious porter.
Definitely worth a try, wouldn't mind having it next time I see it on tap.
