2.95/5 rDev -10.1%
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

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.
