Beer Tasting: Stegmaier Porter

Stegmaier (by Lion Brewing Co.) - Porter After the Anniversary IPA, we thought we would try one more from Stegmaier/Lion Brewing. Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep it to as few as words as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability. Appearance Adam: head and ring dissapated quickly Bryan: Dark typcial porter color, pours with thin head Smell Adam: chocolate, black patent malt, very inviting Bryan: very, very interesting toffee/caramel/chocolate nose; almost imperial stout-like Taste Adam: uh...where'd the beer go? thin, not negative, just doesn't live up to the nose Bryan: less sweet than expected; roasty dryness with moderate bitter notes Mouthfeel Adam: thin Bryan: not memorable and finishes with a slight dirty (?) feel Drinkability Adam: yes it is Bryan: intrigued by the nose, let down a bit by the taste/body, very short finish Seconds? Adam: I'm holding a grudge ;-) no Bryan: maybe one more
