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.

Pours dark brown with sienna hi lites, sand colored head
Some roasted aroma but mostly faint noble hops
Taste roasted grain with slight hop finish smooth no bitterness. Very true to style
Not much fullness in the feel - not watery but not chewable.
Overall nicely done.

A= Brown color with a nice lacing. Beautiful artwork on the label.
S= caramels and nuts, chocolate ruling.
T= Watery chocolate. Not dry but not over sweet either. Not too flavorful. Unremarkable. I've drank better nitro porters than this.
MF= Very light and watery for a porter.
O= Forgettable. Not too bad but there are better options available in our stores.

It's got a decent amount of coffee in its aroma. The roastiness is relatively mild, which lends to it being a pretty laid-back porter. Very approachable.

Nice dark choclate flavor adds to this otherwise standard porter.
