Stumbled across a fantastic airport bar with a fantastic microbrew tap selection while on a short layover in Salt Lake City
A - near pitch black with just a little light around the edges, one finger of head with solid retention and plenty of lacing
S - coffee and roasty malt aromas, mild chocoalte, very mellow
T - Roasty and cocoa malts dominate, mild grain and leafiness, touch of cola
M - smooth and light with just a bit of a chaulky cocoa feel
O - a pretty solid offering from a brewer i had never tried, but this was the first of about 5 i managed to get down my gullet before my connecting flight

Serving type: on-tap

Had to muster through a whole 6er of these gems.

A - Wasn't too bad, caramel brown in the light, one finger head that dissipated fairly quickly to a thin film.

S- Lighter than what I expected, but gave small notes of chocolate, coffee, malt

T- A lot lighter than I expected, a lot lighter. The flavors indicated by the smell were so toned down , not what I expected from a porter.

M- A lot lighter and watery than I expected. Like some have said, it would be passable if it had just a bit of chewiness, but it just doesn't.

Overall- This seems to be to porters what Coors Light is to lagers. I felt like it had to have been cut with water to taste so bland. I'm now scared to try their "Devastator", becaue I fear it's not going to be quite as extreme as it sounds.

Poured into a Great Divide pint glass. Medium dark brown color, a bit lighter highlights. Head is a very small half of a finger, maybe just a large collar, that is light cocoa colored and thin in body.

Smell is light chocolate and coffee, some bright hop aromas.

Taste is not much like the nose. Like the nose there are some bright hops but after that the coffee and chocolate are very light and really meh. Other than the water this was brewed with I don't get much more.

Mouth is very thin with mild carbonation. Body doesn't exist and the finish is weak and dry.

Overall I am really glad this one was a sample given to me because paying for a "Porter" and getting this watery mess would have really pissed me off. This one is a very light Brown, at best. Precede with caution.

Picked this up for the name & slogan alone, which are easily the best I've ever seen on a beer label. 12 oz. bottle.

Pour is darkest brown with ruby showing through the edges. Nice roast in the nose, rounded with chocolate & grain.

Polygamy Porter would be a highlight-reel if not for its one glaring weakness. Thin. Thin thin thin. The watery mouthfeel is the first & last thing I experience as the liquid slides down my throat; thin doesn't quite cut what this beer is. There is a nice roast, light nuttiness, sliver of chocolate, the roast is the only thing that stands out. Easy to drink, just like a cool glass of water.

I imagine this is what steins of beer cut with water in a Middle Ages tavern tasted like. So close - give me more chewy, & this would be a 4% ABV winner, & the world certainly need more of those. As is? Decent enough.

There is nothing wrong with Wasatch Polygamy Porter. It's just a little boring. It's also a bit dry for my tastes, but some people like that.

A: Dark black color and a poor head that fades quickly. 3

S: Nice coffee aroma with, maybe, a little sweet malt. 4.5

T: Very dry and a little flavourless. Milky with some mineral flavours. 3

M: Milky with a low amount of carbonation. 3

O: 3.5
