look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle brought back by my wife on her recent trip to devils lake. drank from my samuel adams perfect pint glass.

A- the pour produces an opaque dark brown colored body with a small khaki colored head on top. the head lasts for a little before falling, and leaves behind small spots of lacing.

S- roasted malts are detected right off the bat. milk and dark chocolate are picked up towards the middle. bitter coffee moves in at the end.

T- the taste starts out with some very dark roasted malts. after that i get some chocolate. both milk and dark. coffee and espresso finish off this one and add a bit of bitterness.

M- the body is on the thinner side of medium. the carbonation is a bit high. decently bitter.

O- a pretty decent beer for what it is. not the most complex offering out there, but i think this is brewed to appeal more to the everyday drinker than the craft beer enthusiast.

Pours a slightly transparent cola color with a thin cap of khaki bubbles. Aroma is very faint, smelling of caramel and perhaps chocolate--it's difficult to say. Taste is similar to the aroma, being that it is also thin and one-dimensional. There's some caramel sweetness and a dash of hops to balance, and not much else. I hope this just needs a little time to warm and open up, or else there's not much else to say (as a matter of fact, something akin to burnt marshmallow does manifest after some warming). The body is a shade thin but within the acceptable range for the style.

I'm usually pretty easy to please when it comes to porters, but this falls short of the mark.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

a clean amber/brown hue with 2 fingers of creme colored head and nice lacing for a porter.

smells of nuts, toffee, caramel, chocolate, coffee. the flavor has a vanilla kick up front followed by nuts, dark fruit (almost like a quad), hint of cocoa, and a complex sweet malt bill, which is impressive considering the low abv.

medium body on the lighter side with a decent amount of carbonation.. creamy on the lips and pretty filling for a light porter!

nothing too impressive with this one, but it's a pretty good porter nonetheless.

What a great porter. I'm no beer snob so my descriptions are to be taken lightly. This porter has a good flavor. Notes of smoke, and molasses hit the nose. Strong at first but finishes smooth. Not a bad beer to drink to get started into porters. It was a lot lighter than I anticipated. I'm just getting into ports/stouts and this was a great first pick. I really like the flavor profile and how it finishes. You don't get a sour face or bitter finish, this porter is sweet, but subtle.
