Tap at Closed for Business. Based on other ratings, I think this may be a bad batch or something. The porter is there, but there’s just huge diacetyl presence. I mean, like full-on buttered popcorn, both smell and taste. I’ll try this again when I’m back in SC to give it a fair shake, but something went wrong here.

brokensail (14558) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 31, 2015
​Can @ Paramount Plaza Hotel. Dark brown in color with khaki foam. Roasted malts and lots of coffee on the nose. A good bit of sweet toffee and gingerbread, some spicy and earthy qualities, and a touch of cocoa powder. There’s a mild fruitiness to the finish on the tongue. Perhaps blueberry? Pretty nice beer.

On tap at Flying Saucer, Columbia SC. Pours black from the tap with a thick tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is a little weak but full on dark chocolate, dark malt and coffee. Backend disappears quickly. This is a pretty good porter.

Une canette offerte par Frank. Merci! Un porter brun et sa mousse comme une écume de mer. Le nez est malté, chocolaté avec une touche de noix, de la crème et des notes rôties. En bouche, rien pour offenser et tout pour plaire. Saveurs faciles, rien d’exagéré, pas de grosses notes amères ni de trop grosses notes maltées. Juste un tantinet de douceur. Au palais, j’ai l’impression d’un liquide de moyenne densité dans lequel le jeu des bulles est modéré à bas. La texture est mince sans être aqueuse. La finale est mi-amère. Plutôt facile à boire. Bon.

Ernest (7032) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Draft (Craftsmen, Charleston SC, May 2015). Head is mostly/fully diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. A simple and overly-sweet rendition.

12 oz can. Picked up a 6-pack while on vacation in Myrtle Beach. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasty malt, some nuttiness, hint of coffee, piney hops. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, caramel malts, white bread, hop resin, and a bit of cream. Dry and somewhat bitter, not really what I expect in a porter. Hops come through a bit too pronounced for this style. Medium bodied, creamy texture, moderate carbonation.
