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

JDBaker11058 (1334) - Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Appearance: silky near-black pour, with a surprisingly thick and creamy tan head, with decent lacing. Aroma: rich bittersweet dark and milk chocolate, cream, vanilla, brown toast, coffee. Taste: roasty dark malts dominate up front, with chocolate, caramel, cream, and a bit of nuts; then thereís a wave of mellow, slightly piney hops. Finish: smooth, roasty, slightly dry, with a bit of chocolate pudding flavors lasting the longest. Notes: Really enjoyed this porter. Smooth, creamy, roasty, chocolatey, everything I look for. Probably one of the top two or three standard porters Iíve ever had.

allfreej (552) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Bottled. Black pour with a fine tan head. Excellent lacing. Chocolate yeasty nose. Chocolate, coffee, malty. Little to no hop character. Nicely bitter finish. An extremely well balanced porter. One of the best examples I've had. Ranks up there with Edmund Fitzgerald. ---Rated via Beer Buddy from my iPad.

SpringsLicker (3164) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Opaque dark brown body under a tall tan head. Spicy roast malt aroma. The flavor is slightly sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee and nutty caramel. I like that it isnít overly sweet and not bitter. Smooth and rich.
