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

keanex (1789) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Deep opaque chestnut body with a foamy light tan head.
Aroma: Slightly smokey with sweet chocolate, burnt malts and a hint of roast. Boy this smells very nice.
Taste: Balanced bittersweet chocolate and burnt malts with a touch of smoke throughout. The finish is slightly astringent of burnt malts and bitter chocolate, but it is appropriate. This is damn near a perfect porter.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: This is a damn good porter, the price is the only downside to this that I can really think of. This is up there with Founders Porter and Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald.

reebtogi (5748) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
650ml bottle pours black in color with a finger and a half of light beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate with some dark fruits and mild roasted grains. Taste is a chocolate malt and dark fruity sweetness with a mild roasted grain and a herbal\citrus hop bitterness. An interesting porter that begs to be sampled.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6842) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a black color with a small foamy light brown head that left a bit of lacing .The aroma was faint fruity hops with notes of red wine, cola and roasty malts. The flavor was thin, bitter and roasty with notes of red wine, fruity hops, cola, anise, tobacco and almost gin. Medium length finish. Light to medium body. Weird and not good.

DocLock (9999) - 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

r464 (2292) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Very dark with a tannish brown head. Smooth and creamy, roasted malt and nuts, coffee and cocoa, then a hint of cherry. Very full and a long lingering finish.

onceblind (7492) - 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.
