Stuedmaster (208) - Vista, California, USA - APR 28, 2013
Dark brown pour with a thin off white head. Aroma is faintly of coffee and earth. Flavor is of coffee, bitter chocolate malt, and bitter, dry hops...it seems to be overly hopped for a porter. This beer is lacking any distinguishing features to make it something you would get again. It’s got a light body, thin texture, lively carbonated, with a bitter finish. It is thirst quenching, it’s the equivalent of a light porter with lots of coffee flavor.

Brown pour. Tan head. Little lacing. Smells of not much. Butter bomb. Sweet finish. Too sweet.

This beer just isn’t any good. It is brown and headless in the glass. It smells and taste sort of vegetal and brackish. It does have a touch of caramel malt character but seems to be oversweet and sluggish because of it. Overall, this is neither good tasting nor drinkable so I can see no real redeeming value.

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
