Bought at 2nd Street Liquor in Casper.

Enjoy by October 5th 2021,around $9.50 for the 6pack.

Pours a very dark brown with a head of foam that you expect from a Nitro.

I get chocolate, roasted malt in the smell, as well as some notes of tartness?? That can't be right.

Chocolate and roasted malt taste but it has some fruitiness that does seem to add a light tartness and I don't welcome that.

Creamy mouthfeel, no surprise there, I feel something has gone wrong with whatever batch this is. Tartness is not wanted. I keep drinking and that tartness doesn't go away. Damn it.

Pours very smooth, initially only about an 1/8 inch head that slowly grows to about 1/4 inch of very fine, light bubbles that persists throughout the entirety of the drink. Adds a creamy, richer texture to the beer when in your mouth. However, the feel of the beer itself is not nearly as rich in texture or flavor. Very subtle aroma and taste of chocolate, and toffee, with a bit of nuttiness. It isn’t very rich, but it also isn’t highly refreshing either, it’s somewhere in the middle, and that’s just fine by me. Overall, it’s a great beer to relax with a the end of the night, pretty slow sipping, and easy drinking for almost anyone.

The dark brown body has a thick, creamy, nut-brown head that lasts. The aroma is slightly nutty with notes of coffee and chocolate. The nitro version is even smoother than the original, and makes for a very pleasant experience. The flavor is comprised of chocolate and a very slight hint of nuttiness.

by defunksta from North Dakota

Appearance: Pours a nearly jet black color with a mild and small tan head. SRM of 23-24. (3.50)

Aroma: Mild aromas, but of rich chocolate, dark chocolate, some espresso roast with some light dark fruit and malts underneath. (3.50)

Flavor: The flavor follows with more rich chocolate, cream, espresso roast, and dark fruit. The flavor is actually quite complex, but it's short-lasted and fades quickly. (3.75)

Feel: Lighter bodied. Soft. Lower carbonation. Actually drinks quite flat. For a nitro, I didn't detect really any nitro in here and found the Founders Porter far more creamy and with a better body. (3.25)

Compared to Founders' Porter 4/4/21: Pours a similar color with but a much milder and lighter color head. Milder aromas and flavors. Leans to have more dark fruits, but overall less of everything. Even less creamy, despite being a nitro.

Overall: This beer had some redeeming attributes. Hard to review when compared to Founders Porter, so I suppose this one may have been decent in it's own light. However, I was underwhelmed with this beer. I found it to have mild aromas. The flavors were nice and complex of rich cholate, cream, espresso roast, with a dark fruit character. Complex, but the body was lacking and so the flavor didn't hold around long. The mouthfeel was flat and I don't think the nitro provided much here, even straight out of the can. Clean and drinkable, but flat and short-sighted. Decent, but probably wouldn't seek out. (Final Rating: 3.58)

L: Practically pours black in color, slightly brow when held to the light, accompanied by a really nice soft, fluffy, tan head with great retention.
S: Smells malty upfront, lots of chocolate, lactose, faint amount of coffee.
T: Very much follows the nose, has a somewhat earthy bitter finish that is nice.
F: Definitely seems a bit thin for a porter. Light-medium bodied, it is silky & smooth though, goes down really easy.
O: Very well done porter, just seemed a tad on the thinner side.

A-mahogany brown, prodigious khaki head. Moderate nitro carb flow but less than expected
S-bready caramel malts
T-follows nose. Toasty chocolate flavor is secondary. below avg. sweet and bitter
M-Light (+) body, lighter than expected for style. Nitro helps out with the silky mouth. Below average carbonation

It's a porter but it's thin. Really wish the mouthfeel was fuller. Nice tastes of chocolate and cocoa nibs. Pours a deep brown with moderate lacing. Overall, the taste is weak for a porter. The fact that it's a nitro doesn't do much for me. It's worth a drink but not the whole 6 pack I bought.

On tap at the brewpub in SLC. Hard to believe that once upon a time I thought this a pretty decent porter.

The beer pours a blackish brown color with excellent head retention and considerable lacing. Alas, this was to be as good as things would get. On the nose I pick up a burnt toast and coffee aroma, with a hint of vinegar. It's not bad, what there is of it. The flavor profile replicates the nose, but the body and mouthfeel are very thin, and there's not a lot of flavor. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile I guess; it's barely discernable, which I guess is a good thing.

Mehhh... There are worse beers for sure, but this is pretty unimpressive. One and done.

Not very much carbonation or head. 6% ABV is hidden well, mostly reminds me of a chocolate soda / Yoo-hoo but with a little less carbonation.

I really like this drink though it doesn't make me feel like I'm "drinking". It has a mild dark chocolate / bitter coffee and VERY mild creamy feel to it but, I really do like it. I bought a sixer of cans a few weeks ago and the past few days I was craving it again so I bought another sixer because it was on sale for $6.99 (previously $8.99) and was very pleasant and happy with the purchase.

I think there's better beers out there for a nine dollar price tag but, this one's worth trying at least once if not twice. I'll definitely grad another sixer in the future if it's in the $7 range but, nothing more. It's a nice beer with a difference beer but, not worth much more than a dollar+cents a can.

S: caramel and chocolate, with some lovely bready notes.

T: bready with tons of caramel, milk chocolate, and grain.

M: medium feel, carbonation is lower, with a nice creamy feel.

Dark brown color. Low carbonation - nitro did not seem very active. 1 finger head dissipated quickly.

Nice charred grain / woodiness and caramel. Coffee notes and a bit of chocolate as well.

Slight hop bite up front - very light. Goes right into heavy roasted grains, coffee, and some Chocolate. Starts of pretty sweet but seems to get a bit drier.

Feels pretty thin for a porter. Could be a lot Fuller. I'd say it's a lower end of medium.

This is a pretty good beer. Not so fond of the nitro in this one. Needs to be Fuller on the chocolate/coffee roastey flavors.

Aroma is milk chocolate, mild coffee and slightly earthy. The flavor is milk chocolate, dark malts, mild coffee and a mix of creamy and acidity in the finish.

Perfectly chocolatey and really smooth. A solid porter that is flavorful and refreshing while not feeling at all heavy. Much better than the standard Polygamy Porter or the Barrel Aged Polygamy Porter in my opinion. Personally one of my favorite porters but I like them on the chocolatey/coffee flavor side.

Wasatch Polygamy Nitro Porter, 6% ABV. Pours black and seemingly bubble-free, with a slight tan nitro head. Should have been more aggressive on the pour. Nose is malty and a touch of dark fruit. Taste is roast malt, a bit sweet, dark fruit, with a very slight bitter close. Pretty flat. Overall meh, not much flavor.

The beer pours a black color with a thick tan head that retains well.
Roasted malt and vanilla aroma.
Coffee taste, a little chocolate, and vanilla.
Medium-bodied, pretty good.

Pours out black. Head is tan and very dense with great retention. Seeing just a bit of lacing

Roasted grains, some dark fruit, sweet vanilla, and a hint of coffee. Quite a bit going on however I wish it were a bit more aromatic.

Vanilla is very pronounced in the taste. Roasted grains through out and a very light bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Feels soft and coats the palate well.
