16 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head that quickly goes to a thin collar.

The aroma is rich chocolate and some grains.

The flavor is sweet grainy chocolate and caramel malts with some roast bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is a bit thin bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a solid roasted grainy chocolate porter. A bit thin. (351 characters)

Little Mo' – Robust Porter (6.5%) - Elevation Brewing Co. (Colorado)
☆☆ ½

App: Pours a beautiful opaque black with a lively tan head that settles slowly, leaving residual bubbles and a surprising amount of lacing. A tasty looking brew.

Smell: Dry roasted backbone with subtle hints of milk chocolate. Overall bouquet is subdued, but pleasant. Mild hints of high esters. Very slight smoke aroma.

Taste: Predominantly sweet with perhaps too much alcohol. Roasted flavors associated with Porter style somewhat underrepresented. Instead, this brew has subtle milk chocolate flavors, but isn't strong enough to overcome the alcohol which hits first and persists. Flavors skate across the tongue and leave an unpleasant aftertaste.

Mouth: Thin bodied with light carbonation. Watery, and a slightly astringent.

Home tasting, 16.9oz bottle into Snifter. 10/8/14. (871 characters)

A very solid porter from Elevation. If it had a little more of everything this beer could receive 5s

Nice pour with a tan head. Reminds me of a Yeti, but c'mon...not quite. Head is a tad soapy and lacing is splotchy

Nice blend of chocolate, smoke and coffee in the aroma. It smells great. Smells like a porter. Hint of booze

The smoke fades into a roastiness in the flavor. A touch grainy. Dark chocolate is baked, and maybe some singed caramel. Coffee is an undertone, thankfully. Drinking coffee grounds is not my idea of fun.

While this beer is just outside of sessionable, it is easy to drink. Had no problem with 16oz bottle. (634 characters)

A: Dark brown, little bit of light penetrance.

S: Malty, dark chocolates, coffee, smoky, not an overwhelming smell.

T: Light start but the smoky malty flavors really come trough in the finish. No one taste is overwhelming but they really compliment each other well. Also hints of dark chocolate.

M: Not the thickest but I wouldn't say it was light.

O: A great porter! Nothing outstanding or overwhelming but the overall balance of this beer is quite amazing in itself. Love it! (482 characters)

Small 1 1/2 finger head ontop of black brew.

Tons of BBQ smoke. oats and nuts rolled in chocolate.

Thin, light carbonation, nicely put together. Spicy, relaxed, not overly complex, nutty, greasy, lots of peanut butter. Woody, light, crisp.

Recommended for the price...$4/16oz. not Elevations best work, but a nice seasonal that I would buy again. Just a bit too smoked for my overwhelming like. (397 characters)
