For the laws of the great state of Utah it is a nice beer to try if you have the time. It is not one of the must taste stops on the Utah brew tour. However if you it a grocery store to see how the utahoins live grab a sandwich and a 4-play.
Black pour from 12oz bottle at no name saloon in park city. Oatmeal, earthy, cocoa and some coffee flavor. Light but enjoyable. mcberko (19803) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2016
On tap at Shades of Pale, pours a deep dark mahogany with with a small tan head. Aroma brings out pleasant mild dark fruits and a little toasted malt. Flavour is more subdued, with toasted malt and a touch of red fruits. It’s not bad, but lacking oomph as always in this state. Itzjerm (3171) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Creamy and nutty and well watery. Ok but water is a bit to prominent. No off flavors. Clean. I guess a nice summer porter?

I bought a six pack of 12oz bottles about two months ago. I drank 5 of them noting that it was an unimpressive beer. At that time it was quite thin for a porter. Today I opened the last bottle and poured about 2oz with instant large foam up to 3/4 line of the glass. It must have had residual sugar in the presence of yeast and over carbonated. I let it set in the fridge for a while then poured the remainder. Still foamy at this pour. Homer321 (5248) - Melboring, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2016
Bottle thanks to Gription. Nose is light chocolate and some bready, toasty malt. Seems more like a brown than a porter in the aroma. Pour is also a brown with reddish highlights, small white colored head. Taste is very toasty with some light chocolate and nuttiness. Not at all like a porter, but a thin, light brown ale. overall ok for a brown, not a good porter.

If it wasnt for a bit of bitterness (roasted malts) to countrbalance the chocolate sweetness, I’d say it’s a brown ale. Thin, but quite harmless and certainly a pleasant drink. Strykzone (7796) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Sampled at gabf. A lot of amber hue. Roasty coffee nose and glavor. A bit of earth. Gentle fruit. Dry. A little grass. Tmoney99 (15114) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew. alexsdad06 (11222) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2015
22 oz bottle from Gription79 shared with the group. Pours a clear dark brown color with a small beige head. The aroma has roasted malt and some dark chocolate. The flavor has more mild notes of roasted malt and dark chocolate with a splash of watered down coffee, thin, watery, more like a brown ale than a porter, this is a new brewery for me so that is a plus.

Bigger bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Clear dark brown color. Thin off-white head, kind of bubbly. Short ropes of lace. Good toasty chocolate aroma, touch of coffee. Lighter body, a bit thin of course... But I like the texture. Crisp, light carbonation and a dry finish make for a pretty easy-swigging porter. Moderate bitter, moderate sweet taste, kind of a mild taste overall. Solid low ABV porter, good flavor. Would be a great one to wash down food with, I bet.
