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!

mikeschuld (55) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Aroma is of roasted barley and slightly of the finishing hops. Super clear with a nice dark amber color. Head is a bit lacking at pour but laces well. Mostly roasted barley flavor with very little else going on. Very light/watery mouthfeel. Leaves a bitter finish.

brokensail (13679) - Orange County, 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 (84) - 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.

monk191 (1351) - California, USA - JUL 14, 2015
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.

fiulijn (16477) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Tasting at Matt’s
Dark brown color, near black, small head. A bit of dark caramel, a bit of dust, light residual sweetness, maybe a hint of lactose and dark chocolate, and not enough character.
Not bad, but shallow.

mcberko (9752) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Nose brings out stale coffee grounds and light toasted malt. Flavour is pretty dry and toasted, but without much character or complexity, with toasted malt and stale coffee grounds. Nothing offensive, but nothing special either. Meh.

Ferris (8128) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle - Toffee, caramel and cocoa notes. Deep brown with a light beige head. Toast and cocoa, not bad.

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 30, 2015
12 oz bottle. BB 02/28/15. (Whole Foods) Las Vegas, NV.
Black colour with a tiny light tan ring. Cookies, chocolate and mild coffee... oh yeah... some roasted malt too. And that’s the aroma. The flavour however is roasted malt, dark chocolate, mild coffee and some mild bitterness. Oily. A bit watery. But hey... it’s only 4%.

DrunkSanta410 (657) - 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.
