Fatehunter's rating

3.5
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
Fatehunter (1471) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Two fingers of tan head on top of a caramel colored beer. Minimal lacing. Roasted malt smell; that’s it and it’s nice. Watery taste, roasted and a little burnt malt and a bit astringent at the end. Thin body, almost no carbonation. Higher marks overall because it’s only 4% with a descent flavor and smell profile.

DrunkSanta410 (414) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Pours black, nice thick tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is light coffee, a bit of roasted malts, a bit of char. Taste is much better than the aroma, nice coffee favors, a bit of sweet chocolate, toasted malts and a bit of faint fruitiness. Thin mouthfeel, highly carbonated. Pretty average porter.

maxwelldeux (4028) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a rather small tan head on there. Nose is roasty with a little bit of bread in there. Taste is nicely roasty with some hints of coffee to it. Really nice easy drink for a porter.

OldMrCrow (2049) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle in Moab.

Brown pour with ruby highlights and a small head. Pretty much had to try this classic as well. I don’t really get the hate. Maybe people just aren’t into the 4% thing? Me, I think it’s great if you can pull off a decent beer at that ABV, and these guys have nailed it. Mild roast and chocolate, just a hint of ash, some coffee, some licorice -- there’s plenty going on here. Sure, it’s not big and sticky, but that’s a substantial part of the appeal. Really nice porter.

Bebum (404) - - JAN 24, 2015
Clear, light copper, smoky color, tall, persistent head. Pronounced yeasty nose. Extra-light body, weak and simple flavor, balanced in its weakness, well carbonated, good length. Sweet & sour, Roast flavors, barley candy, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brandon1989 (395) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pours a dark brown with some red in it when placed to the light. The head was off white and dissipated rather quickly leaving little lacing. The aroma is chocolate and lightly/medium roast, and also some mild coffee. The taste is similar but less pronounced compared to the aroma. The taste is light and almost watery which is expected at the 4% abv. Not a bad beer, worth the try!

queenholly (3067) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle. Chocolate and earthy roasty malt aroma. Deep chestnut with a moderate tan head. Milk chocolate, coffee, and roasty flavor. Medium body, moderate carbonation. I’m rather impressed at the fullness of flavor out of a 4% ABV.

suprchunk (2474) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Brown pour. Small on of white bubbles. No lacing. Toasty aroma and malt. Chocolate and coffee. Taste is pretty much the same. Slight roasted chocolate. Nice.

MWMBeerguy (170) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Medium tan head with clumpy bubbles. Dark ruby brown. The slightest faint chocolate atoms. You really have to work for it though. Slight chocolate taste but the pallate has a hole in it. Not a full feeling body. Nice flavorful session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
