Lazy Boy was on tap at Concordia Alehouse, hadn't ever heard of the the brewery before.

The porter came out almost filled to the brim with very little head and left no lacing. Deep, dark brown with amber highlights. I might have given this a better score with a better pour, but I'm usually disappointed with no head.

Smell is not what I'm used to with Porters. Lots of sweet notes, like brown sugar, caramel, molasses. Some roasty grains, but mostly sweetness. Not detecting any hop aroma, either.

Taste is also very sweet. Caramel, brown sugar, molasses with some coffee. Even a bit of black licorice on the finish. Very little bittering. Flavors are pronounced, but not very intense. Mouthfeel is also quite thin. This porter comes across as watery, it probably could have used more carbonation. Actually, could have used more of everything. I don't mind the sweet flavors, but they could use more intensity. Backed up with more roastiness and bittering, I think this could be a good beer.

Hopefully this porter is a work in progress. I'd like to see it fill out some. With some substantial changes, I'd give it another shot down the road.

Very very dark brown in color with a tan head that is dense but thin. The aroma is of roasted / black malts with coffee and chocolate tones you come to expect from the style. The flavors match the aroma in addition to a tart hop character and well placed bitterness.

22oz bottle purchased at By the Bottle in Vancouver, WA.

Dark, dark pour. Nice tan head that sets there a bit like Guinness, about 1/4 inch of fluff. Sour taste, almost too roasted kind of sour tang to it. It's got some rich roast that shines through the tang.

Thinner body, which works for me. Not a robust porter, of course has it's time an place, but not at lazy boy.

Interesting beer, the sourness throws me off a bit, thus dropping the overall score. Too bad, I like a good lazy boy, but this one isn't it for me.

Decent porter offering. I remember seeing bottles of Lazy Boy in Seattle and never bothering to pick it up...maybe I'll reconsider now.

Dark-brown to black colour with a fair head. Typical roasted malt scent with chocolate coffee notes and your typical American porter sweet-sour character.

Solid, if slightly overdone porter taste. Better than some American porters I've tasted in that this falls more in line with a porter where many Am. porters come of as stouts. Good carbonation, no bad aftertaste.
