For the laws of the great state of Utah it is a nice beer to try if you have the time. It is not one of the must taste stops on the Utah brew tour. However if you it a grocery store to see how the utahoins live grab a sandwich and a 4-play.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber pours with a mahogany body and amber edges supporting a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a pleasing earthy dark roasted maltiness, slivers of toffee, burnt malts and a touch of chocolate malts. Mighty nice. The taste is similar and comes across very nicely with dark roasted malts and highly roasted malts tempered by earthy slightly chocolate like roasted malts and a sense of malt sweetened toffee. Wow! Solid big flavor rich porter. 4% is money here.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small creamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dry, roasty and a touch woody. The flavor was dry, bitter and roasty with hints of vanilla, wood and coffee. Medium length dry bitter finish with lingering coffee and vanilla. Medium body. Fairly blah.

Very average thin porter with light roast and subtle sweet dark fruits and a bit of milk chocolate. Very light and thin but not bad.

Bottle generously shared by someone on the the GABF bus. Pours a medium porter brown with an off-white head. Nose is roasted malts, some cocoa, chocolate, and some caramel. Flavor follows the nose with some dryness in the finish from the yeast. Light to medium in body and lingering cocoa and yeast in the finish.

Roasted grain aroma and flavor; getting some coffee, including a little acidity. Some caramel character, and some biscuit flavor... a little smoky, maybe? Moderate bitterness.
