Review - Boulder Beer Company - Planet Porter
"Planet Porter is a big beer for everyone. Don't be afraid of the dark; this beer is very drinkable and remarkably smooth, brewed for a malty, coffee-like flavor. A once almost extinct style of ale, Boulder Brewing helped revive the category and this is now one of the oldest American porters." -- Boulder Beer Company
This porter pours a muddy black color with a fizzy, light-brown head. Aroma is of moderate malts with hints of burnt/nutty scents as well as molasses. There was also a hint of olive aroma. Initial flavor is moderately sweet with a light bitter finish. This does not taste thick like a usual porter. Medium body on the mouth with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. There is a light coal taste.
