1/26/14. 12oz bottle from Trader Joe’s in Tallahassee. Black pour with a small tan head. Weird aroma, butterscotch, chocolate, dusty yeastiness, musty, metal. Weird flavor as well, bitter dark chocolate, butterscotch, mild coffee, breadiness, biscuits, metal. Meh.

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 (2287) - 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.

crazyvin (1899) - New York, USA - APR 2, 2014
A black body with a tan head. Aroma had a robust coffee presence initially. Hints of chocolate and mild licorice. Flavor seemed to be mostly coffee malts. There was some sweetness to it. Almost one dimensional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

puboflyons (2047) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 11, 2014
From a 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration clip-off date of November 2014. The look is its best feature as it comes in with an amber brown quality and modest tan head. The aroma does have some caramel malt qualities to it but there is also a melted butter-olive oil kind of greasiness to the nose that I cannot quite define. Small hop note. The body is about medium. The taste also brings out that buttery character which tends to overwhelm the sweet malt start and the bitter hop finale.

$1.00 exactly for the 12 oz. bottle purchased from Trader Joe’s (Portsmouth) earlier today. To tasting snifter, it pours a ruby-tinted dirty brown with which shrinking suds and bubbles tried showing support by appearing briefly on top. Aromas of DME, mulch, nail polish, and tin. Tastes the same with the addition of salted caramel, wet cardboard, and vitamins. Meh. I just needed rate: Kennebunkport has never done anything for me.

Black, basic molasses aroma and a bit thin for a porter. OK drinkability. Note to self: Extra in trade or maybe I bought this a while back in Maine.
