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.

B. Pours a black color with khaki head. Not sure if it’s the nitro or what, but kinda tastes like it has no carbonation. Flavor is pretty good though, smooth

can in trade; knocked out NDakota. starts off well, nice dark pour with ruby edges and light lacing. aroma was slight roast and cola; maybe smoke. thin mouthfeel. taste is not that of a porter - too bitter and tart fruit.

Can. Earthy chocolate malt and weedy grass aroma. Black with nice tan head. Lactic acid, light chocolate malt, and mildly bitter grass flavor. Okay body. Pretty acidic.

Solid porter. A bit of chocolate and a little coffee taste. I didn’t get the sour other noticed. A nice beer with no bitterness. Easy drinker even if you don’t like porters.

3/IX/16 - 12Fl. Oz. can from a trade, shared @ RBBSG V (Klaas’ place) - BB: n/a (2016-939) Thanks to CH-303 for the trade!

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 that’s 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.
