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

Pours a deep brown color with a robust dark malt aroma. Taste is a little dry, with a slight bitter coffee aftertaste. Roasted nuts taste throughout. A nice porter that was simple on the palate.

Tap. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small tight bubbled light brown head. The nose is chocolaty and roasty with a nice light hoppiness. The flavor is pretty solid, nice chocolate and light roast, a light sweetness. Medium bodied with a little cling and soft fizzy carbonation. Very solid Porter.

HarryCPhilly (8) - - NOV 2, 2013 does not count
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 (2823) - 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!
