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?

I was recently in Salt Lake City Utah. On my flight back home I stopped in an airport bar. They had this beer on nitro-tap. It was dark with a real nice head. The smell was strong but smelt very good. The taste was excellent. I will definitely drink this beer again.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Pours a deep amber color with a white head. Aroma is malty and light. In the taste, malty but kind of wort tasting and raw, not so much a finished product. Somewhat buttery with toffee notes. Hardly a hop character to note. Light, watery body with a slight chewy malt edge. Overall, this needs cleaned up, it's not very good porter.

12oz brown bottle with pry off cap poured in a nonic pint glass. Purchased on my trip to New Orleans at the end of March.

Opaque, dark brown to black. Brown highlights when held to the light. Dark beige head is 3/4 inch on the pour and recedes to a thin cap. Thin lines of lacing here and there.

Dark dried fruits, fruit cake and dark malt in the aroma.

Taste mimics the aroma well. Fruit cake, dried fruit, dark malts, nutty.

Easy Drinking, medium bodied with light carbonation.

Tasty beer but nothing spectacular.

3.51/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

App: very little carbonation, with blackish-tinge of brown coloring, and little / mild aroma (eve a bit metallic, eventhough poured into a pint glass)

Entree: nice initial hit, smooth taste with a light finish (please not that normally, I would use the word "aftertaste" in some reivews, which means not a desirable trait/characteristic)

Dessert: lighter body than expected for a porter; cannot stand that to enter a review, have to see the total average score, which at time of review was 75--which to me is well below this offering. P

It's a good one in my book--Ch33rs!!!
