45 Fathoms Porter has a dark brown body that is opaque at its core, and ruby colored around the edges. The brown head is a finger or two high, and very solid looking. Both retention and lacing are very good.

The aroma is a hint of hops and a lot of roasted malts.

This is a solid porter from Naked Dove. A slight hop flavor up front is followed by large roasted flavors. A bit of sweetness from lighter malts makes an appearance as well. Hints of coffee are next, but the roasted malts are really the star of show here.

Smooth and creamy, with a very good mouthfeel overall.

This was my first beer from Naked Dove, and I will definitely try more as I find them. Overall, this is a good porter and well-made beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Look: Deep dark brown in color; appears black in the glass. Pours with a 1+ light brown head that dies down leaving a thin, uneven layer of foam on the surface of the beer. A few spec of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Huge aroma of roasted dark coffee; hints of grain and sweet black licorice. Delicious and inviting.

Taste: Dark coffee; loads of black licorice; bitter finish.

Feel: Mild fizzy sensation from the carbonation at start; progresses on to velvety finish. Thinner-side of medium body.

Overall: Overall very good porter. Interesting finish. The finish was a little too bitter finish for my tastes.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a thick frothy tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is excellent. It has a dry, roasted scent that boasts of special roast and crystal malts. The taste is good. It has a bitter hop bite up front along with a dry roasted malt finish. It goes down easy with a thin, satisfying finish. The mouthfeel is decent. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a very drinkable porter with excellent hop notes.

Had this on tap in a pint glass.
Dark as night, with a decent head.
Aroma was a very nice blend of smoke, roasted malts, milk chocolate and bitter coffee.
Medium bodied porter. Taste is high on smoke flavor and roasted malts with hints of chocolate coming through.
This is a very tasty and delicious porter.
Definitely worth a try, wouldn't mind having it next time I see it on tap.

64oz growler poured into a snifter. From the brewery earlier today.

A: Pours a very dark black with a 1.5 finger dense light khaki head. Leaves some great lacing on the glass.

S: Roasted malts and coffee are the first things that come to mind. Sweet chocolate in the background as well.

T: Loads of coffee up front along with some chocolate. Rich roasted malts. The bitterness of the coffee compliments the hops.

M: Good body for a porter, a little thin but thats expected from the style. Smooth and velvety. Easy drinking.

Overall this is a fabulous porter from a great upstart brewery. Was impressed with all of their beers. Can run with the big dogs
