This beer smells amazing. There is a strong smell of coffee and chocolate. After that the taste is not that great. Its pretty bland overall. I got this one for novelty. It was worth the $4. Not the greatest porter, but it sure did smell good.

ABUSEDGOAT (2403) - California, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Darker reddish brown color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is straightforward with a mellow chocolate flavor, some caramel, light roast and hop bitterness. Medium to light bodied, pretty simplistic but still ok.

deekyn (1201) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 20, 2014
A- pours an effervescent cola brown with lighter edges and a finger of latte colored head. S- dirt and coca powder are strong with hints of cheap chocolate, soggy coffee grounds roasted malts and some caramel. Wet grasses and zinc too. M- clean light to medium body. T- flat soda and some honey. Cocoa and dirt with grasses in the middle. Some chocolate but almost like it was an afterthought that was half hearted even then. Ending is sustained with bitter and sharp minerals and follow-up grasses. General hops and some watered down malts. The label was entertaining too.

Reddish brown pour with small beige head. Aroma of chocolate malts, faint coffee, roasted nuts. Taste of roasted malts, faint chocolate, slight nuttiness, faint smoke. Light bodied, watery mouthfeel, higher carbonation and slightly dry finish. Not all that great.

Bottled 355ml. -Finally! The most expected beers have arrived! Well, the story goes like this - my friend "Dragan the Drot" went to live to USA, Salt Lake City, so I’ve asked him to bring me some Wasatch beers when he would come to visit Croatia. So, he came here some four years ago, but have brought no beers. Then, a week later, his girlfriend came too, and he said she was bringing the beers. But, again no beers - they said she was thirsty and drank them while waiting for plane to catch....hmm?! Some time after that, he has sent a package - I though this is it, but no, he has sent a bottle of tequilla! (very good tequila but never mind). And now, after six years of waiting, my friend has come to visit again and this time he has brought a bunch of Wasatchs beers plus one Squatters! Heeeellll Yeaaahhhh!!!
Now something about beer itself...Dark amber/brown coloured, small beige head that went away fast, light roasty nose. Roasted malt, light coffee and dried wruits with touch of chocolate in the finish. Also a bit too watery and rather light porter.

DrSilverworm (6478) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2014
12oz bottle, best by 11/18/14. Thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Clear brown, kind of red color. Thin ring of off-white head. Leaves decent bits of lace. Good coffee, chocolate aromas in the nose. Little bit of dark fruit. Nice full rich flavor for a 4% beer. Flavor of something 6% or more. Lighter body for sure, though. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Light chewiness, even. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet. Pretty impressive, flavorful sessionable brown porter. Kind of refreshing, even.
