3.55/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz brown with a freshness date.

LOOK: Dark brown w/ garnet highlights, decent lacing

SMELL: Caramel, cacao nibs, chicory, light raisin note, mild roastiness, mild

TASTE: Smooth, wet, mineral, grassy, toasted, roasted, Korean roasted corn tea, brown malt, herbal hop, lighter body, dry finish

For a smaller beer it does pretty good, more than enough flavor and a pinch of complexity to keep it interesting. Perfect early afternoon brew to break up the day.

3.03/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle with twist-off cap. No freshness date. Label looks like a little orgy of some kind going on (1 guy, 7 girls). And, I love the saying on the label "Why have just one?"

Appearance: Very dark, black with mahogony/ruby hues. Head is an off-white, pillowing, foam with decent stick and retention.

Smell: Earthy, with chocolate and an almost milky aroma quality.

Taste: Very astringent, earthy and burnt up-front -- from the patent black malt. Mouthfeel is smooth & creamy while the body is light. Carbonation is tight, a bit fizzy. There's little to none on the sweetness front, in fact this beer is dry & crisp. Some chocolate pokes through, but it's faint. Hop flavour/bitterness is also faint, hidden amongst the assertive astringency. Finish is a bit dry, fairly clean.

Notes: It's just a porter. Basic, way too thin and it contains less alcohol than most traditional porters. But what do you expect from a state ruled by religion?

3.49/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

A - Dark but not quite opaque. Tan head dissipates a little too quickly. No lacing.

S - Mellow roastiness. Earthy hops. Munich malt. Gives off a generous amount of aroma.

T - Smooth flavor. Mild chocolate malt. A little slanted towards hoppy from earthy flavors midway. Quick finish with little reminisce of any flavors.

M - Light to medium-light body, semi-dry, light carbonation.

O - Off kilter flavor profile for the style. Malt character underwhelms the hop flavors given. Without knowing it, I would have probably guessed this to be a munich dunkel.
Good session beer.

Recommendation - Pick up a six pack to enjoy on a warm day and throw the football around. Not really one to quaff in a snifter for too long.

3.26/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Sampling right now on 1/27/14 though I had tried it a few times in the past couple of years. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a large tulip glass.

Pours a dark brown with some ruby highlights that has a 1-finger beige head that settles down to just around the edges of the glass. Some very light spotted lacing was seen but not much. The aroma is of dark roasted malts but not really strong. The taste has the roasted malt along with a touch of chocolate. A bit on the thin side for a porter unlike others I have tried. Perfect carbonation. A bit of a slight bitter finish. Overall it was OK.
