Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Named after one of our favorite ski runs at Monarch Mountain, Little Mo’ oozes aromas of chocolate, coffee and light floral hops. The palate hits with chocolate and coffee notes, balanced with a subtle bitterness. With a medium mouthfeel, the lingering sweetness from this malt forward beer will have you asking for just a Little Mo’!

Appearance: Pours coffee brown, with an impressive beige cap; good stickage and strands of lacing hang

Smell: Chocolate, smoke, roast and mocha

Taste: Chocolate forward, with mocha tones developing; through the middle, the smoke develops but the finish is rather acrid

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: There is a lot to like with this porter, the acrid finish notwithstanding

This is just kind of a boring beer. Sorry guys and gals, but it is. Maybe ok as a, what, session porter/
Pours a nice dark brown, pretty pale tan head, not super persistent but fine.
Smell is a bit off, funky in an unclean way. Some malt coffee notes.
Taste is suuuper mild. Palest malt flavor. Not quite "south Georgia diner coffee made from dissolved brown crayons mild." But in that neighborhood. This is porter for someone who likes lager. A bit off: from force carbonation?
Mouthfeel is ok. Bead is large.
Overall this just doesn't come together for me. Cool name & label. Wanted to like it more. Didn't.

This is just a good solid porter, not the best I've ever tried but certainly very good. It's got a little bit of everything, nicely balanced and flavorful. Drink this and you'll know you're having a porter - it's very representative of the style.

4 is a clear dark brown with a half inch of a white head. The nose is of roasted malt with light coffee notes. The taste is nice. Malty and roasty with balance. A pretty good porter with a dry finish.
