Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

22 oz bottle from Gription79 shared with the group. Pours a clear dark brown color with a small beige head. The aroma has roasted malt and some dark chocolate. The flavor has more mild notes of roasted malt and dark chocolate with a splash of watered down coffee, thin, watery, more like a brown ale than a porter, this is a new brewery for me so that is a plus.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bigger bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Clear dark brown color. Thin off-white head, kind of bubbly. Short ropes of lace. Good toasty chocolate aroma, touch of coffee. Lighter body, a bit thin of course... But I like the texture. Crisp, light carbonation and a dry finish make for a pretty easy-swigging porter. Moderate bitter, moderate sweet taste, kind of a mild taste overall. Solid low ABV porter, good flavor. Would be a great one to wash down food with, I bet.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours thin dark brown with tan medium head. Mild roasted aroma and taste, very watery... overall not impressive, lacking in all the qualities I look for in a porter. This would be better classified as a brown ale.

bottle - Pours dark brown with a light tan head and a mild roast malt aroma. The flavor is of roast malt and coffee. It’s light to medium bodied and watery. The flavor is alright but it’s just weak... the body, flavor, everything.

Bottle from Whole Foods Pours black with a thin khaki head. Nice roasted notes on the nose. Lovely roasted flavor on the tongue. Finishes clean. Definitely the best thing I’ve had from them.

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.
