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.

Clear dark brown with lovely ruby hue. Tan, foamy head of low or medium retention for the style. Smoky malt aroma, nuttiness along the lines of a brown ale, and the slightest hint of hop fruitiness. Smokey-tart to the taste, but being on the lower end of medium-bodied, with almost no hop bitterness, fine carbonation, and only mild smokey or toasty aftertaste, not overpowering. As smooth as it is crisp. One of the more "drinkable" porters out there, but not quite what I'm looking for.

Had on tap @ Squatters in the Salt Lake City Airport

Appearance - Served up in a pint glass with a light tan, 2 finger head. The brew itself is a ruby brown color. Fantastic retention, never really dying past a quarter finger's width. Lacing is streaky across the glass with a few spots between.

Smell - Nutty aroma, with touches of earth and faint chocolate.

Taste - Lacks a lot of flavor. What is there is very light walnut shell earthiness backed by faint chocolate. Not much change in the flavor apart from it fading quickly.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with a smooth, velvety texture as provided by the nitro. Slightly watery finish.

Overall - Fair brew. Opted for the 6% bottle version on my way back through and found it much better than the tap version, though it was no World Beater itself. If you just need to have a porter, though, go with the bottle.
