4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - via Ale in the Mail. Black and opaque. Roasty aroma with some malt. Very good. Definite roasty flavor but without being more like a stout like many porters do.

Bottle from Total beverage. Pours black with a thin khaki head. a bit of roasted malt on the nose. Smooth on the tongue without being particularly flavorful. finishes clean. Drinkable but unexciting, I see why this rarely leaves Colorado.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
December 30th, 2011 - Boulder Beer’s Planet Porter is much like the other beers lined up on my tasting tray. Each has a semblance to its respective style, but nothing stands out. There’s too little character and quality, and that pattern seems to extend from light to dark. The Planet Porter smells chalky and faint, and what scent I do gather is simply sweet with milk and dark chocolates. The flavor is likewise chalky, coating the tongue with a too-mild chocolate flavor, which disappears quickly on the aftertaste. It’s a great beer to pair with the pub grub, but on it’s own, its another disappointment from Boulder Beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, nearly black, deep ruby hues, moderate to large frothy light beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Soft roasty nose, slight bakers chocolate with a hint of coffee.   Not as robust on the tongue as the
nose suggested.   Seems like mainly roasted malts, very little hop background.   As it warms the coffee comes out a bit more on the backside.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes fairly clean, but a bit light.
Low in hops, decent roast (at least up front), with a slight coffee finish.   Not as hefty as others.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
on tap at O’Niell’s. Nitro. Appearance is amazing, no doubt owing in small part to the nitro, black in color with small creamy, frothy white head and excellent lacing. Aroma is subtle with roasted caramel and chocolate malt. Full bodied with a creamy texture and soft carbonation, moderately sweet. This was a very good porter, I enjoyed this.
