3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into an English Pint. Born on the 349th day of 2009. This one has been in my fridge for a while. Pours a very dark brown, almost black with almost no head. Has a very nice chocolate and coffee aroma. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Strong coffee taste. Medium bodied with a thin yet creamy texture. Fizzy carbonation and a long coffee finish. Overall, this is a pretty damn good beer. I’m sure if you kept the beer the same but took off the Michelob name and added the name of Sierra, Stone, FFF, CC, Mikkeller or any other brewery known for good beer it would have a much higher rating.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed at my cousin’s house for his son’s 2nd birthday party. When he gave this to me I was a bit hesitant, but he said it wasn’t bad and they do not get many porters in his area. I’d agree, not bad stuff, kinda thin for a porter but still contains those chocolate malts with a bit of coffee.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bought a six pack on sale for $2.99, couldn’t resist price. Pours dark but clear, with a tan head. Aroma is weak and sweet. Taste is sweet and malty. Palate thins out quickly. Drinkable, but nothing to write home about. You get what you pay for....

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Tastes closer to a schwarzbier than a porter, doesn’t quite have the edge. Decent for what its worth but could be more malty and complex

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a deep chocolatey-brown with a good-sized tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel, slightly light, slightly oily. Smooth chocolate flavor with notes of coffee and a slight fruitiness in the finish. A solid brew. Not outstanding, but FAR better than the usual from A-B.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle poured into glass. Pours a dark brown/very dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma is of dark roast and chocolate. Has the same characteristics as any other porter. More watery than most I’ve had. It leaves a dark, chocolate aftertaste but the first impression is almost like a generic pale lager. I’m biased towards porters so I gave this one a pretty good rating, but there are better porters out there. 13/20

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with almost no head. Sweet taste and aroma of roasted coffee. Thin and weak for a porter, but off the charts for a Budweiser product

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a deep mohagany with a thin head. Very little nose and the palate is a little roasted barley but over all not good. Sorry If you’ve had it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle; Used most to cook with. Dark cola brown. Aroma of caramel and roasted oats. Flavor was ok; a bit harsh, but ok. Actually tasted like the style, which was surprising
