COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American hops provide a smooth distraction for Payback Porter’s robust strength, which is concealed within the shadows of dark imported malts.

22 oz. Bottle. Dark black, almost opaque, thick tan head that laces very nicely. Aroma is malty, chocolate, coffee. Roasted malt on the palate, smoky, light bitterness. Full bodied but still very smooth, well balanced.

wyzzywyz22 (1973) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2010
On Draught whilst watching a killer Allman Brothers tribute band at the Boom Boom Room, San Francisco. Black as a Crowes wing with a smallish tan head. Roasted malt nose with some dark chocolate and coffee notes. Similar elements in the flavour which was nice n’smooth with great balancing hop bitterness. A really decent porter to drink away those statesboro blues.

hopscotch (9242) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, beige head. Great retention. The aroma is a fantastic mélange of espresso, deeply roasted malts, dark chocolate and toasted tree nuts with whispers of anise and black licorice. Full-bodied and chewy with laid-back carbonation. The flavor provides sweet, robust espresso and dark chocolate flanked by black malt and American hop bitterness that is anything but overbearing. Bittersweet, mocha and licorice finish. Perfect breakfast porter… mainly because I drank it at 8:30 AM. World class beer!

OldPeculiar (11) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2010
Very, very tasty. Well balanced. Licorice malty chocolaty notes. Beautiful color with thick head that goes away a bit too quickly. Long aftertaste. Definitely one of my favorites.

glennmastrange (2288) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Bottle. Moderate toasted, dark chocolate and strong coffee for the malt, light herbs and resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast, and raisin, soy sauce, vanilla and alcohol in the background. Head is small, bubbly, off-white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark, almost black. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, silky and has a soft carbonation and a touch of chalkiness in the finish. This is an excellent Porter, so well rounded and full in every respect.

CampesinoTino (770) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Bomber. Pours a dark brown color with a good inch of thick cappuccino like head. Pleasant aroma of roast malt, coffee and cocoa powder. The taste kicks off with a strong roasted malt flavor backed by citrusy hops and bittersweet chocolate. Also some light roast coffee and orange peel in the mix. There’s a surprisingly strong citrus presence that nearly overpowers the dark, roasty flavors. The alcohol is also much more subtle than I was expecting. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill Porter.
