A nice deep brown in color with a finger of sand colored head (tan with a light hue), nice lacing left behind. Smells of cocoa, raspberry/blackberry, almost a coca cola scent to this.. Slightly roasty, sweet malts, smells.. Well dark , and slightly fruity. Flavor is god damn raspberry! Haha, lots of raspberry up front with a roasty finish.. Bit of chocolate, roasted grains. Damn tasty fo'sho'

.. Lighter Medium body medium carbonation.. I wish it were slightly fuller.
This is pretty awesome for a fruit beer. I've had raspberry stouts before and they weren't that great, but something light like a porter works well with the berry flavor.

Served in a nonic pint glass.

Gotta have something to go with these skewers, and this one jumped out at me first. It pours a deep, dark black-brown topped by over a finger of dark khaki foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, mild coffee, a hint of dark chocolate powder, and a kiss of greenery. The taste brings in more of the same, with the greens attempting a full balance against the roast and chocolate, but not fully achieving such a status. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a solid porter, one that went pretty well with the salmon skewers I was eating without smothering their not-so-robust flavor. Good times.

22 oz. bottle, with handwritten Batch #45 written on the label. A new beer to me from Spiteful Brewing, out of Chicago, my first encounter with a porter from these guys. Expectations are good.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a dark chocolate brown; appears opaque black in the glass with about a finger to two fingers of thick khaki-tan head.

S - The smell is comprised of charred roasty English malts. A bit of caramel / toffee makes an appearance. Chocolate. The hop presence is noted, but not overpowering.

T - Taste brings more of the same, roasty, lightly charred, chocolate, coffee beans, caramel / toffee, and a hint of hop presence, but nothing too extreme like how others have said. Earthy / herbal hoppiness is most noticeable on the end.

M - The feel is smooth & creamy. Milky. Medium-bodied with good, low carbonation. Roasty bitterness on the finish.

Overall, a solid example of the style from Spiteful Brewing. I am interested to see how the other variants of this beer are, and I can't wait to crack the barrel-aged version!

Spiteful Brewing God Damn Pigeon Porter ---4/5.

Really interesting porter from Spiteful here. Poured from a 22 oz bomber.

A: A dark opaque brown, this poured really nicely with about a finger of head on it. Lacing left on the glass quite nicely. A great looking porter.

S: Malt, chocolate, maybe a little citrus hoppy going on there as well?

T: Iiiiinteresting, chocolately porter with a good hit of hops going on. It's definitely lighter for a porter, somewhat refreshing.

M: Nice and light for a porter. The hops definitely crispen up what is usually a smoother style.

Really interesting to taste this much hops in a porter. Got to say it's pretty delicious though!
