Poured from a 355ml bottle into a Fullers snifter glass.

Pours a black colour with a slightly off-white head.

Smells of burnt malts with a hint of chocolate.

Chocolate disappears with the taste, though the burnt malts are still there, and combine with a thin mouthfeel to form a dry, crisp taste.

Overall a very nice porter.

A lot of dark and charred malt flavors. On the dry side, perhaps more like a stout, but a chuggable, thirst quenching brew in any case.

Quite a watery body. Modest foam on the dark brown beer with a reddish cast. Adequate carbonation in the mouth. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Very faint malty sweetness followed by the hint of stale coffee and scorched grain. But all very pale.

There is not much of interest here. It reminds me of the dark lagers that were endemic to pizza places in the 1970s, like Falstaff and Michelob Dark.

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

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.
