    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 5 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 6

    pours a dark brown almost black color with about a small head that disappears quickly leaving a trace of lace around the top of the beer and edge of the glass. A lot of carbonation rises to the top of the beer. The aroma consists of sweet cocoa and roasted malts are the dominant the aroma with some caramel notes as well. The taste is of cocoa and roasted malts are the dominant flavor. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied beer with a lot of carbonation.

    This porter is a little thinner than most other porters, but for a low price porter it is pretty tasty. It pours a rich brown, almost black color with a good khaki head that stands tall. The aroma is of toasted malt and coffee. The flavor is rich with chocolate and coffee with a slight bitterness of a fruit. Besides being a little thin on the tongue, this is a good porter.

    Hard to imagine that I would ever rate a Mich this high, but I found this to be pretty good. Might be my favorite domestic semi-swillish porter so far. I am comparing this to Yuengling Porter, but a bit more of a robust flavor.....mainly of chocolate, coffee, some slight tart flavors of fruits/raspberry with a little bit of bitterness. I am tasting the coffee more the second time around. Got this in the variety pack, so I'd say is the best out of the 4 in there. I would buy again as an economy beer.

    Beautiful pour; dark brown with ruby highlights and a thick tan head. Aroma is malty with hints of chocolate and caramel. Taste is similar; mild but tasty. One of the better tasting beers from Michelob's craft line.

    Bottle Code 09051 VC13; Sampled April 2009
    A hard pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a four-finger thick, lightly browned, full tan colored head that leaves lots of lacing on the sides of my glass as it slowly subsides. This has a dark-chocolate born color to it that shows a brilliantly clear, brown-ruby hue to it when held up to the light. The aroma smells of roasted malt up front, with sweet dark caramel sugars, fruity raisin notes and a nutty, toasted whole grain character. The roast notes are actually pretty soft here in the nose, and actually the whole nose is a bit more muted than I might prefer, though it is quite nice.

    The beer tastes dry up front through to the finish. Roast flavors are pretty noticeable in the long finish where they contribute notes of roast-acidity, coffee like roast notes, toasted grain flavors and a spicy brown malt character. Up front the toasted grain notes play a bit role with nicely browned, whole-grain bread like flavors as well as perhaps a touch of grain sweetness. This has a nice hop bitterness to it, but also has some pine like flavors to it. This is amply quaffable with a medium'ish body that has just a bit of a velvety texture to it.

    This Porter has a great texture to it (though it isn't quite lush). It is perhaps a touch bland in the nose, but the flavor makes up for that. This is a well balanced beer and I could see myself quaffing a few pints of this tasty tipple.

    Not a bad porter interpretation and is perfect for cooking a roast in the slow cooker. It's best attribute is the appearance. Mine poured incredibly from the bottle to a British pub glass - great color, thick head and good lacing throughout.

    Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz. bottle. The pour is an almost opaque deep brown with ruddy tones and a finger's worth of tan head. Retention and lacing are decent. The nose is of coffee and chocolate. The taste is more of the same, and there is the trademark burnt flavour and finish of porters. There is some bitterness throughout the sip. Unfortunately, the mouthfeel is a bit thin for the style, and there is a lot of carbonation. Drinkability is good; I am sure I could have several. Aside from the thin mouthfeel, this is a nice representation of the style. I doubt it would win awards, but if running short on cash and wanting a porter this wouldn't be a bad buy.

    Okay, I walked past the displays before and resisted, but I’m looking for ingredients to make a stew. This porter was the right price for a cooking medium. And yes I tried a couple. In summary, the people in Missouri in need to stick with what they do best, making swill. This porter wannabe poured a reddish brown. A light tannish head without much retention and a light frothy ring is all that’s soon left. A bitter-sweet roastiness in the aroma. The body is a lightweight somewhat near watery. Not like the porters I’ve come to love. The taste aside from a slight sense of sour cherries is rather bland. It better taste better in the stew.

    a little thin for a porter...maybe more on par with an average american brown ale. not bad, but not something worth buying again, especially with all the more robust porters out there.
