look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Pours nearly a layer of tan head over a pitch liquid that has dark brown edgings when held to light. Smells chocolate, burnt grains, worty, nutty, beefy. Pretzels, clean mild alcohol sting, malted chocolate shake. Tastes much the same. There is something not right about this beer. The burnt character is just too strong and very off putting. I dumped this one. Medium-thick in the mouth and mild carbonation.

I ama anew at drinking Porter's this is my third one so take this with a bit of salt but I was not at all impressed here. The finish disappeared immediately. The smell started out right but it never even started after that. better than a Miller Light but that is about I can say about this one....I will try and educate myself and try some more Porters but it was not as good as the other two I had in Seattle recently.

22oz bottle stamped 110717, 5.9% ABV, 30 IBU, and served in a tall glass. Beer pours dark brown, opaque int he glass, and topped with moderate chestnut head. Roasted barley aroma like a stout. Pondering a stout the first thing I consider is that this has a much thinner mouthfeel, and more sharply carbonated. There's a grainy sourness to the malt, which brings a delicate aspect of astringency to the beer, and in the aftertaste it comes around as a coffee flavor. Robust porter? There's a multitude of flavors here, but none of them overly strong, and notably, none of them hop-forward. I think this is a really interesting beer and I'd love to taste it alongside a bunch of other American and English porters, because I think this one would really stand out. But maybe this style of porter just isn't my thing, or not right now.

Dark tan head. Fades quickly. Pure black, dark as night. The way a porter should look! Lovely roasty aroma. Tastes of roasted sugars, faint hints of chocolate, pipe tobacco-like bitter finish. Hops well balanced. Goes in way too smooth; very enjoyable mouthfeel. Maybe a little too thin but certainly not watery.

Overall a great porter. But not quite as memorable as other Reuebens beers. Still very worthy of your dough and palate.

22 oz bottle shared during dessert at Thanksgiving. L: Very dark brown with good head retention, not overpowering. S: Dark roasted malt, hint of chocolate. T: Labeled as robust porter, and definitely fulfills that. Strong roasted, robust malt flavors. Only a hint of chocolate and bitterness very low. F: Medium, lighter bodied, just under 6% abv as well. O: Stoked my brother brought me a bottle of this to try from Seattle.

Solid porter with plenty of coffee and a sweet smoky tinge to it, dark chocolate comes out in the finish. Light on the malt - most of the character is coming from the roasting, not the malt itself. Very lightly hopped, more of a grassy or hay character than the typical PacNW beer's citrus or piney hops. Not much head at all (poured flat essentially), but still has a decent amount of carbonation so it is not cloying.
