Why have just one? Polygamy Porter is a smooth, chocolately, easy-drinkin’ brown porter that’s more than a little naughty. Take some home to the wives!

Not bad, but a bit too thin. Better than many Utah 4% beers however. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark brown with a small tan head, no lacing. Aroma of malts and some coffee. Taste is malty but a bit salty, some coffee nice bitterness towards the end. Drinkable, enjoyable but not spectacular.

NYBeerBro (5) - New York, USA - SEP 22, 2015 does not count
Look - Draft Pour yields a nice off-white head that dissipates rapidly. Not much lacing. Opaque black coloring. Smell - Loads of coffee. Smells bitter if that’s possible. Taste - Very light on the coffee tasting hop bitterness. That’s about all I get. Not much chocolate or anything else you’d expect. Maybe a little cocoa. The bitter finish lasts and sits on the tongue. Feel - Feels very carbonated and crisp. Not necessarily a good thing for me. I like this style to be silky. Overall - Not to my liking compared to many other widely distributed porters. Not terrible though. I probably wouldn’t get it again. Almost seems watered down.

krumbum (797) - truckee, California, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Nice rich nutty aromas. Deep mahogany brown with nice lasting tan head. A bitter nut taste, with a both of over roasted coffee.

bottle, ooof, very thin and sweet. Malty brown molasses mixed with tons of water, then old milk.

strongpieman (1635) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Draft at Squatters. A light porter with mild taste and aroma. Nothing unlike able, but on the thin side of palate.

AgentAle (1312) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 4, 2015
Aroma is heavily roasted malts, caramel, toffee, coffee, espresso. Taste is sweet roasted malts, chocolate and light bittering hops. Finishes slightly watered down sadly. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

brokensail (14555) - San Leandro, California, USA - AUG 19, 2015
On tap @ Squatters. Dark brown in color with a sort of reddish hue and some tan foam. Toasty, nutty, and fruity nose. A lot of plum and raisin in particular. Somewhat acidic and thin on the palate. There’s a bunch of roasted malts, some coffee grounds, and dark fruits. Not really a big fan.

PlainsDrifter (90) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Pours dark brown with small tan head. I am not a huge fan of porters, generally - but this is a lighter porter with very little bitterness. Aroma of coffee and malt, sweet molasses taste - malty with no bitterness and very light finish. Very drinkable.

A nice, light porter overall. Pours a deep red-black with a tan head. Smells of coffee and cinnamon. Taste is light, with cinnamon, espresso and a slightly empty finish. Had in the bottle.
