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

Beer #4 in the great Utah Brew Hunt.

Honestly, this beer struck me as more of an English Porter than an American one. It was mellow and even with minimal vibrant flavor tones that really stood out. Even and consistent and an easy one to drink, but for the style, I'd hope for a bit more kick in the mouth.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours dark brown (almost black) with some ruby red visible around the bottom of the glass. The head is thin and light tan. The aroma is of dark roasted barley malt with some chocolate and coffee. The taste follows the nose. There's dark roasted barley malt, coffee, and those chocolate notes are very faint. It's mostly roasty in the flavor, but not to the point of tasting burnt. The body is light with moderate carbonation. The drinkability is high, but only because the beer is so thin. This is an average beer that doesn't bring much to the table.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A- pours dark brown with a small tan head with decent retention, no lacing.

S- tomato soup, smoky, cocoa powder, pretty mild overall.

T- mineral, toast, grass, herbal hop, cocoa powder, finishes very dry. Undertoned taste for a typical porter.

M- medium carbonation, very light body, slick, drinks more like an ale.

O- taking its style I to account, it's just too light for a porter, if I was in the mood for a porter, I wouldn't choose is one. It is however very drinkable and could be a good switch up as a session beer option. Interesting.

On tap at airport.
Black with a night light tan foam surface. Wood, coffee, dry hazelnuts and hints of toasted cream on the nose. Smells dry and I light that in a porter. Taste follows with a dry and woody flavor with hints of cold pressed coffee and some soil or dustyness. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel and salivating finish. I like the beer, particularly at 4%.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Poured into a pint glass.

2.5 A: Deep amber brown color. About one finger of frothy beige head that fell quickly and left no lacing.

3.5 S: Big roastiness with some toastiness thrown in. Light chocolate. Grainy malts. Not overly powerful, but pleasant and powerful enough.

2.0 T: Taste is missing everything that I like about the nose. Much less roastiness, almost no chocolate, way less graininess. There isn't much going on overall.

2.5 M: Lighter body. Too much carbonation. Lacking all creaminess.

2.0 D: Aside from the nose, this isn't a winner. Fairly bland without any good porter qualities.
