3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery and now being called "Powder 11" - black and almost ruby when held up to the light. The nose and taste are both smoke. The mouthfeel is thin and the finish is also smoke. Ssssssmokey!
Draft pours dark brown with a large billowing light beige head. Light aroma, chocolate, hops. Flavor is roasty with bitter cocoa. Dry, highly carbonated. Decent. Iphonephan (7008) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2015
On draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear dark cola brown with a tan head. Roasty nose. Flavors of tobacco and licorice. Medium bodied. Smooth finish. Bill Becker (1064) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - AUG 28, 2014
A: Dark brown with some red hues. Small tannish head of foam, little lacing.
S: Good amount of roasted malt, some chocolate like bitterness.
T: Roasted malt is lighter than I expected, some sweet notes, dark chocolate like bitterness.
M: Medium bodied, low carbonation. Could stand a bit more fizz to have a better mouthfeel.
O: A pretty average Porter; the 5% abv may make it easier drinking but I think it does so at the cost of taste. 3fourths (9349) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2010
draft. filtered cola brown body with a small brown filmy head. watery body with a twangy caramel cola flavor up front. fizzy carbonation across the middle, ending with a toasted nut and bread short-lived
finish. fairly boring and watery porter overall. the low hop level and absense of roast suggest english-style classic brown porter, which is a treat to see, but unfortunately it simply doesn’t do much.
