Porter:


Pour: Very little sound when I opened it. Very little head, and it dissipated quickly.


Appearance: Classic porter appearance, dark brown with a bit of amber. Very clean, no floaties.


Aroma: Surprisingly light aroma. Slight smokiness is about it.


Taste: Flavor is caramelized and roasted maltiness, and a bit ashy. It seems a bit under-carbonated. This is a lighter style, clean porter. It has a light mouth feel, and seems dryer than the FG of 1.016 would indicate it should be. It has a very clean finish.


Proximity to Traditional Styles: This is a lighter style porter.


Overall: I think it is well balanced, but it seems to be missing the richness or viscosity that is expected in a porter.

Thanks for letting me taste Richbrewer, sorry it took so long to post a comment. I look forward to reading your comments on this beer.

I agree with your assessment of this beer. It is a clean beer but it just doesn't have the maltiness or body I was hoping for. I think the burnt roastiness of the black patent is a tad over done which surprised me. I've put 1/2 pound into porters before and didn't get that much burnt flavor. Don't get me wrong, I finished the keg off last night and enjoyed every drop. It just wasn't what I was shooting for.
Thank you for evaluating my beers. I truly appreciate the feedback.
