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

DocLock (8244) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Bomber from Whole Foods. Pours dark blackish brown with tan head that clings well. Nose is black caramel malt, cacao, mild roasty and rauchy molasses. Tastes roasty caramunich malty, with cacao, lactic milk-stoutiness, and a creamy finish. Fairly dense palate heft and a notable complexity throughout. This one is a repeat buyee for Doc Lock.

22oz. Looks like a nice porter however the taste is average at best. Purely one dimensional. I was expecting more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

onceblind (4965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Clear black pour with a medium fading rocky head. Nose is roasty and a touch smokey with roasted black grains and un-sweet cocoa. Taste is smokey and cocoa-y with a earthy cocoa sweetness and thorough herbal hop notes. Sweet overall but not in a chocolaty way. Just a bit too smokey for me. Good in chili Im sure.
