look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

From the 355 ml. bottle marked DRN-05/07/13. Sampled on July 29, 2013.

It pours dark brown with ruby red hues glistening in the light and a long lasting silky tan head.

On the nose I get dark toasted malts, butter, and a low hop presence. Maybe there are a few coffee grinds in the mix.

The body falls into the thin to medium range but creamy.

The taste tends to have a sweeter sensation than the aroma may imply with dark malts and butter in there too. Clean but mellow hop finish.

I do find it ironic that this only gets an "okay" rating on BA even though this has won a few silver medals over the years. I guess it all depends on who they are competing with.

Nearly no head. Quickly settles to rim bubbles only. Interestingly, it does leave a bit of spotty lace. The color is deep, dark brown where a modicum of light passes through.

Smells of chocolate and of milk, but not like chocolate milk. How can that be? Not chalky like some porters.

Lighter body than most porters. This is accentuated by a higher carbonation. Beyond that, the flavor is decent: some chocolate, some vanilla. Short aftertaste. No notable hop or alcohol. The beer is a good introduction to the world of Porters.

3.21/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours a jet black from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Two fingers of light brown head that disappears quicker than expected.

Smell: Some chocolate and smoke, roasted barley and maybe some dark sweet fruit.

Taste: Sweetness from the malt and a bit of roastiness typical of the style. A little bit of chocolate and coffee but not a ton there.

Mouthfeel: On the light side of porter but still smooth with light carbonation. Goes down easily and not a sipper by any means.

Overall: A pretty solid porter from Wasatch that I just had to try because of the name. At 4%, this is a nice session beer and something I'd try again. Not bad at all.

Poured 12oz bottle into a pint glass, small white head. Nose of the beer pretty good a little chocolate, little coffee, and little roastiness but they all complement each other nicely. First sip, something is missing. I get chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts but the beer is a little thin. I find myself wanting more. As i continue to sip i begin to enjoy the easy drinking nature of this porter and like i said the taste and smell do deliver. Looking at the bottle it clocks in at 4%abv so essentially a session porter. Overall i liked it, it may not compare to some of the big boys but i don't think its trying.

look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Poured a clear, semi-dark ruby brown throughout with a whitish beige head that fell apart all too soon.

Smell: Rich chocolates, malts.

Taste: The beginning peaks rich and sweet; the middle calms down into the richness of the chocolate; the end fades into a soft coffee or mocha flavor that lingers on the taste buds until the next sip.

Mouthfeel: It was a bit light, but I think this one was wanting to go for that.

Overall: An interesting light porter with a pleasant taste and smell, but I'm fine with just one.
