A beautiful black pour with red highlights and a frothy tan head. A malty caramel and chocolate aroma with traces of coffee. It has a creamy texture with medium sweetness. It has a smooth chocolate mixed with light coffee and a hint of bitterness in the finish.

Boulder Beer Planet Porter has a medium, creamy, beige head, a very dark, almost black, brown appearance, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark-roasted barley malt, charcoal, sweetness, and black cherry. Taste is of those elements, with the noticeable char, yet little bitterness is detected. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Planet Porter finishes semi-dry, rich, sweet, and good. RJT

On tap @ Blind Tiger. Man, I don’t know what beer other people drank to rate this so low, or maybe they change the recipe but this porter was awesome. Medium bodied with a big roasted aroma. The taste was big also, smoky, rich, chocolate and coffee. Fantastic stuff.

Boulder Brewing - definitely a hit-and-miss affair with more misses than hits. This one is a hit, though. It is very rich and tastes of quality and care in brewing; it is not one of those "weak stout pseudo-porters" that you sometimes find from American microbreweries. This is a textbook porter and is just as good as the UK’s Flag Porter that I just had. It looks as if I am a bit against the grain on this one, but if you like Porters, give it a try. Tell ’em that Ringo sent ya!

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2005 yhis was the last beer from a 12 pack sampler - and it was the best! Dark rich malty favor. And just as the deScription promised - very drinkable with a perfect coffe finish.

4Appearance is thick, dark, opaque. Black and shiny like a bowling ball. Head evaporates almost immediately.
Bitter coffee smell, bitter and rich. Sweetish tobacco, sweeter dates and raisins. Rich and beautifully balanced.
Strong sweet flavor at the start, with dark grapes and a hint of flowery hops. Some bitter coffee and mocha. Hints of milk chocolate. Gets nutty as it warms.
Mouth feels a little thin, but smooth and leaves a little reminder on the tongue. A tad chalky. A solid porter. Balanced, smooth and nice. A real good call.

Colorado’s first micro-brewery. Suck on that New Belgium. Suck on this Porter too, it’s delicious!
