I need to grade it while tasting it. I like this Porter quite a bit when I had it Had it again on tap February 2017 at chandlers downgraded it from a 3.9. Was kind of thin and boring lacking in any real character ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 Roasty malt aroma and taste is the most evident quality, medium mouthfeel, tasty but not memorable, can.

12oz can. Glossy black pour with quickly diminishing dark head. Lots of roast in the aroma and a bit of chocolate. Mouthfeel is slick and flavors are bitter roast and a touch of licorice. Nice, but not the body I prefer in a porter.

Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Received an extra 12-oz can via trade with squire. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a creamy and thick beige head that has some excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, some roasted dark malts, and floral hops. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of chocolate, some sweet caramel, toffee, and roasted walnuts. Finish is semi-sweet with aftertastes of chocolate, caramel nuggat, honey, and floral hops. I don’t know about pairing this with your average Swiss cheese burger, but with chocolate popovers with honey butter - oh yeah!

From twelve ounce can at my sister’s house on Thanksgiving on November 24, 2016 (thanks, sis!). Very dark brown/ruby hue, nice roasted malt nose, good bittersweet taste that was a little off, likely due to the age of the can. Enjoyable beer nonetheless.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Can. Pours a ear dark brown body with a one finger foamy beige head. The nose is chocolaty, roasty, lots of licorice, some burnt caramel, just a bit of leafy hops. The flavor is not as thrilling as the aroma though. It’s a bit more burnt and roasty than I’d prefer for a porter, it finishes a bit acrid and with a heavier burnt caramel presence. I wish the chocolate malt were a bit more forward. Medium bodied with a little clinginess and light fizzy carbonation. Not a big fan of this one.

kathouse (1930) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Pours brown with a light colored foam. Definite cocoa flavors and mild roast but also has a hint of coconut. Rich and filling.

superspak (5874) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JAN 7, 2017
12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 11/2/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy very dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger fairly dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, toasted dark bread, nuttiness, light smoke, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, toasted dark bread, nuttiness, light smoke, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Moderate herbal/spicy hop and roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, toasted dark bread, nuttiness, light smoke, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from hop/roast bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and fairly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.8%. Overall this is an awesome American porter! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Really outstanding well rounded malt complexity, spot on for the style. A highly enjoyable offering.

Can from Discount. Pours a deep brown to black with a chocolate syrup looking body with a small amount of head. Bakers chocolate, touch of cream and light roasted malt on the palate. Easy drinking porter. Creamy but light bodied. Bit of dark fruit and roasted malt on the finish.
