Description:"This dark, medium bodied ale offers the drink-ability of a much lighter beer. The inviting chocolate and malty flavors fade into a slightly dry, silky smooth finish. Why have just one? 4.0% alcohol by volume." — Wasatch Beers
The tasting: Dark brown in color. When held up to the light, it appeared to be reddish-orange. It had a tan head that dissipated slowly and left no lacing on the glass. Aroma and flavor of coffee and roasted malts. It also had a very subtle sour taste that did not seem out of place. Not a lot of hop flavor. It was light in body (I expected something a bit thicker) and was nicely (medium) carbonated. It had a slightly effervescent mouth feel and finished with some sweet roasted malt. Very drinkable.
Rating: 3 star.Good. I would drink this again if someone gave it to me. I liked this beer. It's not available in Oregon, so I'm glad I picked it up while I was in Arizona. I'm not that familiar with the Porter style, so more research is imminent. I plan to do a series on this style in the not-to-distant future and will include a few Imperial Porters.
Have you tried Polygamy Porter or any other Wasatch Beers?
