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!

Pours a rich black from the bottle with a ruby tint when held to the light. Smells of cocoa and toasted malts. Tastes primarily of bittersweet baking cocoa and caramel. Very earthy mouthfeel and well balanced.

Pretty light/thin porter. Chocolate and roasty. Very watery. Still decent and crushable.

Uggh, you want to like something you have never seen...now I wish I had never seen this. Nose is nice, roasted malt some chocolate wafting in the background...taste is a porter with a shot of water. Way too light.

JohnnyJ (5370) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Bottle. Clear brownish pour, with a thin head. Watery and thin for a porter. Burnt malt, molasses, watery, and a bit of dark fruit. Not very good.

Bottle @ home from Harmon's SLC. Pours and looks like a Coke. Smells s but like milk chocolate. By UT state law 4%. It is a bit light. Chicory, brown sugar. Not much kick or bitter. Meh...

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.

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.
