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

JFGrind (1969) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Strong chocolate aroma, medium bodied Porter with coffee and roasted malts. Speakeasy makes a strong contender of a Porter. Even the Missus liked it. $5 bomber at Wegmans, great deal.

tricksta_p (2914) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of roasted malt, milk chocolate, coffee. Flavour is moderate sweet with a nice moderate hoppy bitter finish. Body is medium. Smooth and a bit creamy. Body is medium, appears thinnish at first but gains some pleasant creamy weight in the finish. High drinkability considering the ABV. Good Porter!

You can blither on about robust strength and dark imported malts until your arse catches fire, this beer suits only one adequate deScription: a silky chocolate mousse in a beer. Yep. I like it a lot.

Very good porter, from a recent USA trip. Robust yes, hops not overwhelming and adding flavour. Not too roasty. Very drinkable, and still strong carbonation.
