Enjoyed at a tasting at Toms last night. 16 oz can. The plur is a light and dirty clear dark brown. You can see through this, which is strange. There is a light tan colored head that slowly leaves with no lace. The aroma is humongous roast. Its bitter roasted malts through and through. There is a light earthy hop to it, but the bitterness of the roasted malts just turn this one off for me. The flavor is the same. All bitter roasty malt. There is a charred grain thing going on as well. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a softer carbonation that doesnt help anything and a lingeringly bitter roast on the finish. Did I mention its bitter and roasty?

This porter does not have as rich a taste rich as the gold standard Founders Porter, but the aftertaste is amazing. The heavy roasted malt combined with the fresh, appropriately rich hops makes this fine porter linger on the sides of the palate for a very long time. This is the first offering from The Alchemist that I enjoyed.

This is the worst porter I have ever had. The name on The can is the best part about it. Anyone that says different should be ashamed of their pallet. Thumbs way way down.

@Ulfborg Scooper. Black, beige cream. Choc aroma, some hops and light coffee notes. Coffee and hops flavour. Quite hoppy and bitter for a porter. Very nice.
