Looks ok (not great), but everything else about this beer is flat, and one-dimensional. Not a fan.

Brown pour, lighter than your average American stout, but a giant head that was impressive at least.

Lots off roast dark malt notes in the aroma. Simple enough.

Taste is a somewhat hoppy, earthy, roasty porter edging over to the bitter side of porters. Not overly hopped, its just a less than average amount of malt to make a 4% porter kind of beer.

Lighter feel than a normal porter but flavor was still good.

For a porter, this seemed a little light. Perhaps because this is from Utah, where they limit the alcohol content (at least for beers bought in Utah). Overall, okay, but seemed like a light "dark" beer.

Utah = old Indian word for lightweight beer. I spent a few days in Springdale UT next to Zion Nat'l Park. It seemed like there was only one beer distributor in town and Polygamy Porter was everywhere, even T-shirts. I had two of these with Mexican food at Oskars in Springdale. It's hard to put this beer in the same name class as Ballast Point's Victory at Sea. For me, it's just a small step up from an amber ale. There is some good roasted grain flavor in this beer. But it lacks the richness and complexity of many other porters. As a paring with Mexican food, it is a small step up from say a Dos XX Amber and was fine to drink. But this is a lite-Porter and should be advertised as such. Cute names are sometimes a marketing ploy. There is lots of ploy in this brew.
