Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed for those times when you need to blow off a little steam. Blown Gasket is a darker offering with a moderately strong malt character. Notes of toffee and chocolate. This porter is robust as a new gasket kit, black and smooth like poured oil. Delicious black oil.

Super smooth, thick, robust porter. One of my favorite brews from my favorite brewery! Strong malts, dark chocolate notes, wonderfully thick head

Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Deep, dark brown color with a good beige head and good lacing. Nice roasted malt smell. Taste includes chocolate, pumpernickel, and sweet toffee. Enjoyed it.

Pours a dark brown into a fifteen ounce glass mug the same temperature as the beer. Two fingers of mocha solid foamy head. Adequate lacing.

Smacks the nose with chocolate fudge. Next up is the dark roast coffee with a hint of toffee. Nutty.

Taste of chocolate fudge follows the nose. Bread. Coffee nose almost disappears in the flavor profile. Toffee remains. Lighter flavor than most porters. Finish is dry.

Medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation.

Overall a very drinkable light porter.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine #121

Toffee, Chocolate, Coffee, Bittersweet
Someone had a bit of fun brewing this beer—while there are no flavor additions, the specialty malts bring forth a whole lot of depth. Suggestions of bitter chocolate, caramel, coffee, toffee, charcoal, brown bread, and even a faint suggestion of smokiness come to mind. Hop bitterness and flavor take a back seat to malt in this Porter, and are simply there to help offer balance. Some warmth and dark fruitiness from the alcohol adds further depth. Blown Gasket is very enjoyable to knock-back. [Jason]

Poured from a can. Very silky mouthfeel. Roasted coffee, fudge, and little bit of caramel notes. Not an overwhelming porter, extremely balanced and easy drinking. As another reviewer put this, I would love to have this on nitro. Cheers
