This beer is about a year past its date.

Toffee, deeply caramelized malt, toffee, and molasses dominate the aroma. There's a touch of chocolate and roast malt, along with dark fruit, but the buttery toffee dominates. Flavor reveals that fruity malt/acrid character at the base, with a lightly roasted, lightly bitter finish. Nutty malt dominates the flavor. A little heavy on toast and lacking in chocolate, but a very approachable brew.

Boulder Beer Planet Porter has a medium, creamy, beige head, a very dark, almost black, brown appearance, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark-roasted barley malt, charcoal, sweetness, and black cherry. Taste is of those elements, with the noticeable char, yet little bitterness is detected. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Planet Porter finishes semi-dry, rich, sweet, and good.
