I also tried the Porter last night. Overall, a C+. I like a good Porter, especially the one I brew or Kona Brewing Company's Pipeline Porter (brewed w/ 100% Kona Coffee). The beer was very drinkable, smooth...hops weren't too strong. It was somewhat creamy, leaving a slight aftertaste of butter...or maybe margarine. That's the only downside to this beer. Without the butter aftertaste, would've been a solid B+.


I had planned on cracking open the Brewmaster Reserve tonight, but Sonya came down with the flu...I definitely need to share this monster brew.

Definitely don't like a butter aftertaste...

Say "hi" and "get well" to Sonya...

I'm surprised how close the PQ's of all these beers are.

since i bought in a sampler pack, all have the same PPO (Price Per Ounze)

So did a 6-pack of this cost $6.97?

I'm trying to see if I can use the PQ to derive the price paid...

Here's the point values I assigned to grade:

A+ = 4.3
A = 4.0
A- = 3.7
B+ = 3.3
B = 3.0

and so forth.

I bought this as a 20 beer sampler pack.
