Musty wheat malt aroma with roast. Overly complex label dude. Foggy, medium brown with a foamy head that’s nearly white but not quite. Interesting flavor - the chili notes make me want to have a good kosher dog with mustard. Dry, starchy, the bittering is spread out and not concentrated on the approach or the finish. Mild roasty porter notes at the end. Medium-light body, tight carbonation. Light burn at the end. Not a world-beater, but definitely worth a rating. Really, the more I think about the hot dog thing, the more this presents itself as a decent tailgate/BBQ selection. Procured at the former Petro, corner of Bull Headley and Bannerman, probably soon to be at major gas stations everywhere.

Nice bright cloudy amber beer with decent head; no lacing. Complex aroma with caramel malt, chocolate, cloves, nutmeg, orange and pepper. Tastes of caramel malt then an unusual fruity flavor (roasted mango-like), then a little spicy. Full creamy mouthfeel.

bbrock81 (304) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma somewhat muted, malty, chocolate, a bit of coffee roastiness, Flavor is pretty decent, again quite malty, a bit of sweetness, more coffee and chocolate, and some spice on the finish. I didn’t really pick up much chili, just some general spiciness. Palate is fairly heavy, thick mouthfeel. Carbonation is pretty decent, maybe tending just a bit to the harsh side. Overall very decent, if not as interesting as they try to make it sound.

PorterPounder (5190) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarkets - Killearn - 12 of bottle. Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a thin off-white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma is somewhat neutral with some brief chocolate and chili-like spice. Flavor is somewhat muddled, but interesting. Pick up some chocolate notes, some chipotle-like pepper spice and just a hint of bubble gum. Mouthfeel is thick enough, Better than expected.
