Maybe I donít know what a great porter is, but this tasted good and made me happy. A little bitter, a little sweet.

Black color. Roasted malts, smooth mouthfeel, slightly thin for a porter. Good flavor. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is slightly malty.

Dark chocolate appearance with amber underpinning. This beer has a candy chocolate flavor with a body just a touch on the light side for a porter. Rounded out well and a good porter overall.

The Big Horn folks make a bunch of beers for a chain brewpub outfit in Colorado and Wyoming. I had this one and their Belgian Ale at CB Potts in Cheyenne, talking sports with my new brother in law who was a linebacker with the Wyoming Cowboys not too long ago. Yup, heís pretty big, and so is this beerís malt profile - lashes of dark sweetness with a definite chocolate kick. I agree with beerboy - a good one to round out a meal, but not exceptional.

Its like a desert beer. Very flavorfull, with a great chocolate bite. Try one in an irish car bomb, its like eating cake. I canít say it is agreat porter, but its definatly one of my favorite beers.
