COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Planet Porter is a big beer for everyone. Don't be afraid of the dark; this beer is very drinkable and remarkably smooth, brewed for a malty, coffee-like flavor. A once almost extinct style of ale, Boulder Brewing helped revive the category and this is now one of the oldest American porters.

Slightly mashy aroma, some dark fruits - in particular dates. Simple, and quite English, porter. Perhaps a bit thin, I like the US porters as they are fuller than the English ones. Still a rock-steady nicely roasted brew.

Roast chocolate and american citrus hops. Flavors is chocolate and roast. Really a one dimensional porter. It’s an ok beer but nothing special. Low alcohol and semi low flavor.

Bottle; poured a dark brown/black color with a smallish khaki head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, vanilla and sugar. Quite a nice aroma. Flavor was a bit different, more roasted and earthy notes. Good for the style.

teorn88 (7687) - Rimini, ITALY - AUG 5, 2011
Draught at GBBF 2011. Pours a dark, brownish red; looks fairly thin and watery. Aroma is roasty with coffee, molasses, and chocolate. Flavor is light; the initial flavor is sweet and nondescript, but it tapers into some chocolate and light ash flavor and finishes with some light vanilla and roast but not much else. Very thin for a porter.

Tap @ Boulder Beer DIA. Deep brown/black appearance with a creamy, tan head. Roasty, chocolate, coffee, dark malty nose. Creamy mouth feel. Coffee, dark chocolate, light toffee, dark roasty flavor. Nice one.

puboflyons (3467) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 31, 2011
From the bottle labeled Enjoy by Aug 17 2011. The look is an enticing dark brown to black with ruby highlights when held to the light. The tan head lasted some time. Aromas are a bit sweeter than most with a nice balance of dark malts, molasses, and thin, wet hops. The body is medium to full. The sweetness spills over into the taste with a moderate bitter bite at the end. A likeable brew.

Aroma: roasty, woody. Appearance: dark brown, a nice tan head. Taste: light sweetness, medium bitterness, good medium malt taste. Palate: medium body, slightly creamy, average carbonation, a nice bitter finish that was very mellow. Overall: All together this was a very nice Porter. Not a strong Porter, but a mellow one with a really nice sweetness.
