3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, courtesy of Dave. Dark brown body, light tan head the resolves to a thin layer. No real lacing to speak of. Nose of coffee grounds, dark malts, chocolate and some oatmeal flakes. Fore of the tongue is highly acidic and biting, rolling to the back does not help much. Flavor profile is sort of weak and watery, as the nose is. Medium bodied, the high carbonation helps here somewhat, but its still lacking something. Finish is watery, medium length and with some notes of coffee and malts. Disappointing, but at least I can say I tried Polygamy.

Im not a fan of porters. Just not my style of beer. But i found this one to be nice and smooth. I would definately recommend it.

Nitro charged draft. Nice lacing and aroma compared to burnt toast. Rich flavor, malty and medium mouth feal, not like a stout but similar in color. Love the name but not too impressed with the beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark mahogany,slight red tint, good foam cap,light lace. Chocolate, light roast, slight coffee aroma. Mineral berry. Mainly cocoa and mildly nutty. Taste is somewhat the same, with mild coffee taste all around. Some ashy grassiness. Ashy finish like day old coffee almost. Not quite day old though, its decent especially for 4% porter. Really if you like some coffee/ashy taste this has some full flavor for a light porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nearly black with a pretty garnet edge when held to light. The long lasting head is light brown. A nice nose of cola, milk chocolate and anise. Hints of pecans are also present. This tastes slightly ashy, especially in the finish. Otherwise there is some coffee and notes of cheap milk chocolate. This is a light middle of the road brown style porter. Not a stand out, but certainly well made with light roast.

I wanted to love Polygamy Porter. It has an awesome name, fun bottle art, and a clever tagline ("Why have just one?") Unfortunately, this beer just doesn’t have anything new to offer to the style that isn’t already out there. The low alcohol content is new, I guess, but it seems unnecessary. Most porters already make fine session beers. I don’t see the point of making a porter that has a slightly lower ABV than the rest, especially if it lacks the sweetness and richness of many of those others. While this isn’t a misstep for Wasatch, it seems to be an effort that could use some work.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown to black pour with a thin, creamy tan head. Aroma is light roast, char, dry roasted nuts, toffee and a hint of mineral and earthy hops. Flavor is roast nuts, chocolate and overcooked toffee up front a little coffee, bicarbonate, light mineral notes, toast, light bready yeast and a little ashy char to the finish. Light body, creamy entry, dry finish, moderate carbonation. Pretty good overall, the weird bicarbonate/mineral notes definitely take it down a bit.

On tap at airport.
Black with a night light tan foam surface. Wood, coffee, dry hazelnuts and hints of toasted cream on the nose. Smells dry and I light that in a porter. Taste follows with a dry and woody flavor with hints of cold pressed coffee and some soil or dustyness. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel and salivating finish. I like the beer, particularly at 4%.
