SKA "Ten Pin Porter!"
SKA Brewing - Durango, Colorado USA
Porter (ABV 5%) (IBU 46)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]


Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a murky dark brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown frothy head that receded down to a medium film and large collar thus creating good runny lacing.

The aroma was on the mild side with a roasted dark bread malt, light resin hops and a sweaty yeast along with notes of milk chocolate and coffee.

The taste was lightly roasty and somewhat sweet with a touch of chocolate from the onset, progressing with a light bitterness and a nice note of coffee towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow with a slight bitter roastiness left behind.

Mouthfeel was a few shades below medium in body with a thin watery texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall I found this brew to be rather thin for a Porter, although it was quite flavorful and very easy going down...
