3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle, $3.99 World Market Columbus. Clear black pour; giant rocky eggshell head becomes a large ring and can be somewhat revived with swirling; very heavy alcing. Aroma is weak; "black," nutty, roast, ash, dark chocolate, yet not much coffee. Flavor also weak; nut, roast, ash; dry finish. Velvety carbonation but a little on the thin side. Pretty lame porter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber scored at Gracie’s in SLC. Knows presents with roasted coffee, the medium body flows into the glass a nut brown liquid capped with a thick khaki head. Coffee on the nose attended by a very light hop, coffee and roasted malt in the flavor. Dry mouthfeel with a bit less watered down experience than most Utah beers. Outside of the Elephino, one of the better brews of the evening, but outside of Utah, wouldn’t buy it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from the brewery. Pours a very dark color with ruby tints and a long lasting khaki head. Lacing is dense. It’s a really good looking beer. The aroma is solid, no complaints here. There are notes of cacao, coffee, leather, and a perfect amount of sweetness. The palate is reasonably full with medium carbonation. This is a tasty, malt-heavy, straightforward porter. Very clean roasty notes of coffee are in the flavor as well with a bittersweet dark chocolate finish. Slight woody bitterness comes through here and there. Quite solid.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
aroma faint with slightly/barely smoky accent, decent foam retention after initial pour, flavor is above average for beer though rather bare-minimum for a porter, palate also bare-minimum. might work as a gateway beer to transition the swill-drinkers toward the hard-n-heavy stuff.
