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

Aroma is not very strong here, but displays hints of roast and dark malts. Deep brown color with a stable tan head that drops to a thin film until the end of the glass. Deep sweetness with mild roast character and very light hop bitterness. The body is thinner than I like a porter to have, though still solid enough to satisfy. Finishes clean and has no lingering film on the palate. Luckily I had a 750, so I could see how the beer improves as it warms. Would probably be a great porter on a beer engine.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Really solid porter with all of the expected qualities. Dark mahogany pour with a creamy latte head. Cocoa, roasted coffee bean, vanilla, caramel, and toffee. Loads of malt and a thick, malt-like consistency. Nicely done!

ansermadide (1509) - Kyle, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Dark brown in color, with a pasty light brown head, this porter really isnít all that attractive in the nose. Thereís a little spice and roast present, but otherwise itís pretty empty. Itís a little sweet in the mouth, like cane sugar, and is somewhat pleasant. Although Iím unimpressed with this beer in general, itís still pretty good. I just donít understand the hype.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thick black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of chocolate, roast, hints of coffee, hints of earth, spice, nice dark fruits, hints of slight nuts. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast hints of earth, caramel, toffee, slight earth, spice, hints of oak and vanilla even though its not oak aged, touch of dark fruits, finishing slightly sweet, bitter, and dry.

Bottle from Spirits Brick. Porued a medium density dark black body with a creamy dark beige head. Aroma of chocolate creme soda, vanilla, dark toast, hint of alcohol. Creamy body with average carbonation that leans slightly towards being strong, sort of fuller for a non Impy but at 7.5% itís not like this is a "light" porter. Flavor of dark toast, cocoa, vanilla, pudding and slight roastiness. Good beer.
