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

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2011
Bottle:   Lucious little Porter here.   Deep deep brown, lovely head, large and foamy, light beige, nice lacing.   Smooth, oh so damn smooth on the tongue.   Soft roastiness, a little bit of coffee and chocolate.   Now this a Porter!   Smells like a Porter Milkshake!   Soft hops, which is preferable.   I am not a big Porter fan, but this one makes me forget all those nasty astringent or overly hoppy messes that most people call a Porter.   Yeah, good stuff this is!

Braudog (5948) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Bottle. Exceptional visuals, textbook porter ... deep, dark black, with a towering, cratered head of tan foam. The aroma is somewhat mute, but the beer delivers a full-on, robust kick of somewhat ashy, bitter chocolate chewiness. There’s a hint of prune, but in a pleasant way. This is a super easy to drink brew, classic porter with a kick. Well done. (#4601, 5/23/2012)

Draft sample and full bottle enjoyed on the lawn at NY Brew Fest with Andrew, Pat, PJ, and Feng Daddy. Pours a deep blackish -brown, with a frothy light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, malts, and oat while the finish showcases a slightly hoppy backbone. Body is on the full side for a porter. One of the best beers at the festival.

riversideAK (5726) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Very hoppy for a porter nose. Roasty, earthy good floral bitterness in the aroma. Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. The flavor is roasty and earthy with a good deal of hop bitterness in the finish. Long dryness lingers. Well done.
