12 Oz bottle in a English Pint. Poured black, as it should, with a One Finger head that quickly disintegrated. Very smooth texture, and tastes of Chocolate, coffee and perhaps Wood? No lacing to be had, but still a fulfilling brew. If I need a porter on the cheap, this is definitely a good choice :D

Not particularly good by any means. Pours black without much head or lacing. Kind of a sour dishrag finish with some light roast aroma. Bottle.

From TJs. Reminds me of old school microbrew porters, much thinner and less robust than today’s varieties. Mineral taste. Serving: Bottle

12 oz. bottle, foisted on me by Ian. Pours black, with a medium, bubbly, tan head. The aroma is roasted coffee, peat, oak, and brown sugar. Sweet and malty, with a slightly sour, toasted bitterness. Medium body, acidic, a little chalky, and astringent. This is a overly roasted porter, with an unpleasant flavor and mouthfeel.

12 ounce bottle for a buck at Trader Joes (plus the bottle deposit which is totally worth it, good idea). Pours a dark brown color with a small greyish head. A sweet cocoa nose. Sweet, cocoa, toasted malts, nutty. Hmm. Decent, coca-cola. Just thin and mostly light. Has some Guinness mineral flavors in it that I like. OK.

Kennebunkport Porter has a thin, cream-colored head, no lacing left behind, and a dark brown (ruby, under direct light) appearance. The aroma is of turned or spoiled raw spinach and dark grain, and after the beer warms a bit, one gets sweet syrup and acidic hops. Taste is of dark grain, turned fruit or vegetable matter, acidity, some chocolate powder, and a background stinging bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat powdery, and KBC Porter finishes semi-dry, and it does improve in flavor after it settles down and warms. But, make sure you let it warm and settle down! RJT

tmoreau (2380) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2014
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass showing a clear, deep mahogany brown color, with a creamy layer of tan head froth, and wavy cling to the lacing. The nose was roasted, chocolate, some caramel sweetness, toffee, and a bit of husk & grain scent to the malt. The taste abandoned the sweetness, and took on hop bitterness that possessed earthy astringency & dryness, with some lingering quality. Light to medium bodied, with decent carbonation, and light creaminess to the mouth feel. Finished on the dry side as a fairly drinkable Porter. From the local Trader Joe’s as KBC Porter from Portland, Maine.

The aroma smells like a box of raisins, with a bit of an earthy, kind of muddy smell. Not necessarily bad, but not wonderful. It’s almost black, with a thin tan head. It tastes pretty good, but a bit thin. It’s got plenty of chocolate up front with a pleasant-but-nondescript hop flavor that lingers. A decent porter for the price, but I’d probably sooner pay a little more for more quality.
