American Porter |  6.40% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This award-winning dark ale is surprisingly smooth and drinkable. Caramel, molasses and chocolate flavors fill the palate. Its sweet start is perfectly balanced by a roasted dry finish. Nitrogen-conditioned.

3.26/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: Pitch black, with a thin light chocolate color froth.

S: Strong chocolate with a hint of coffee. Odor of roasted malts raises the expectations, very pleasing to the nose.

T: Thin and watery, not what I was expecting. Nearly like a 'Light" malt. Not robust as described, nor as hearty as a porter should be. My palate was rather disappointed.

M: Light and smooth, but no richness to it. Feels too thin to be a porter. A rather large letdown for me.

O: Mediocre at best, too light, with no boldness to it. I don't think I'll be trying it again anytime soon. Maybe less nitro would help make this a stronger porter.

Serving type: nitro-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Black with a creamy mocha head.

S: Nose is all milk chocolate.

T: Tastes like chocolate milk, but less milky, less sweet and more bitter. Basically what I'm saying is that this is a chocolatey stout. Very tasty, not watery, but not the strongest or most robust of porters.

M: Full bodied and velvety smooth.

O: One of my favorites from BJ's, originally one of my favorites overall.

Serving type: on-tap

3.3/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A - Black, with a mocha head that retains and laces well.

S/T - A little light considering the robust nomenclature. Smooth roasted malt rolls into dark chocolate tastes with a slight earthy hop bitterness in the finish.

M - Feels thin, even taking the nitro into account. Turns watery quickly and doesn't have that rich mouthfeel associated with porters.

O - Tastes average, mouthfeel is fairly sub-par though.

Serving type: nitro-tap
