Sodbuster Porter is a beautifully balanced, robust beer that pours black with a thick tan head. Dominated by coffee, chocolate, roast, and faint hints of smoke; this porter is rich and full on the palate, providing you with the fortitude to make it through North Dakota winters.

On tap at JL beers. Pours a jet black color with a thick light creamy brown color. Smell is roastied grains and vanilla. Taste is chocolate and caramel burn sugar but not over the top. Another great one from the Fargo boys!!!! Keep it up. This one is worth a try and worth coming back to!!!! Bravo. Best one yet.

Solid porter. A bit of chocolate and a little coffee taste. I didnt get the sour other noticed. A nice beer with no bitterness. Easy drinker even if you dont like porters.

State tick! :-)
Clear dark brown beer, small to no head. Aroma: very roasted, coffee, mocha, caramel, bit sweet. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: surprisingly sourish start, fruity, some red berries, strawberries. Aftertaste: soft roast, sourish, bit lemony even. Weird, yet decent.

Medium-sized head gives way to an aroma thats primarily smoke and a little chocolate. Taste is mostly sour and again has a smoky haze hovering around the taste buds. Thin body and sour finish. Not pleasant at all.

Patrickctenchi (6327) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Can: Deep brown/black with a thick, dark oatmeal head. A hint of lactic/metallic in the caramel and cocoa scent. Taste is a touch of sour milk, chocolate malt. Pretty good, but a little on the tangy side, overall.

Benzai (14680) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2016
Sampled @ Ratebeer Belgian Summer Gathering 2016. Almost opaque dark brown to black color, small beige head. Smell and taste malts, lightly sour, but also nice porter notes. Overall though the flavors that -imo shouldnt be in there- dominate the nice but unfortunately underlying soft roast and mild chocolate flavors. So overall, meh.
