pours a nice an head that disapates very quickly, has a dark, dark red color. Aroma has not much too it, slight chocolate, slight malt. Body is thin, Carbonation is all right for sle. Taste dry, chalky, porter light, tasts like dirt. Polygamy means more than one which is good because if this was called Monogamy Porter and it was the only one I was stuck, uh oh.

Reviewing the Wasatch Polygamy Porter from the Utah Brewers Cooperative. This beer might have the funniest beer label slogan: "Why have just one!"
Bottled 09/04/11, served in a pint glass, and enjoyed on 01/13/12.
Appearance: Pours a dark brown/red soda color. On the more opaque side of translucent with plenty of ruby colored highlights throughout when held up to light. Poured maybe a finger of light mocha colored head that quickly settled into a thin lace of bubbly head across the top of the glass. Slightly below average lacing for a 4.0% ABV beer. 3/5
Smell: Cream soda and lots of sweet caramel malts are most apparent in the nose. Has a slight roasted chocolate malts and light vanilla aroma too. There is a definite sugariness or corn syrup "soda-like" aroma here, maybe some butterscotch. Some grainy corn too. There is also a little nuttiness and extremely faint coffee. The more I smell this, the more I come to the conclusion that the aroma is too sweet. 2/5
Taste: Tastes like it smells, but much more watered down (both in terms of taste and mouthfeel). Watery caramel malts, vanilla cream soda, and butterscotch. Nothing much else going on. Very diluted flavors. Leaves a faint caramel and even light nutty (almonds?) finish. 2/5
Mouthfeel: Incredibly light bodied with light carbonation. I did not think it was possible to brew a dark beer with a more watery consistency to Miller Lite, but here is your proof. Guinness is chewy and viscous by comparison. 1/5
Overall: When the label is the best part, and in fact the only good part, of a beer, something is wrong. This really weak porter that I would not drink ever again. It does not taste that bad, and it is certainly drinkable, but it has less alcohol content than Miller Lite and taste/smells too sugary for a porter.
Recommendation: Avoid this one.
Pairings: This one is more a palate refresher than a flavor compliment...but, uh...cookies?
Cost: $8.99 for a six pack.

Had to muster through a whole 6er of these gems.
A - Wasn't too bad, caramel brown in the light, one finger head that dissipated fairly quickly to a thin film.
S- Lighter than what I expected, but gave small notes of chocolate, coffee, malt
T- A lot lighter than I expected, a lot lighter. The flavors indicated by the smell were so toned down , not what I expected from a porter.
M- A lot lighter and watery than I expected. Like some have said, it would be passable if it had just a bit of chewiness, but it just doesn't.
Overall- This seems to be to porters what Coors Light is to lagers. I felt like it had to have been cut with water to taste so bland. I'm now scared to try their "Devastator", becaue I fear it's not going to be quite as extreme as it sounds.

A: Thick black with a nice, full half-inch of cream-colored head that remains big the entire way down. Generous clumps of thick lacing down the entire glass. Gorgeous-looking stout.
S: Weak nose... Some roasted malt and light coffee character, but it's not very aromatic.
T: Roasted malt, a light chocolate and coffee bitterness in the mid-taste, and mild hop bitterness in the finish. I have to struggle to find these though. No real character to the taste.
M: Medium-bodied with low carbonation. Good mouthfeel, just nothing substantial to taste.
Serving type: nitro-tap

I bought this one at a Total Wine and More in Glendale AZ, so it's hard to say how old the beer was. Overall disappointed, but kind of figured seeing that it is a novelty brew. If there ever were any aroma or flavor hop additions, they were long gone from the bottle I drank and I could not distinguish any of the bittering hops. Could not make out any yeast flavorings either, this beer was very clean of distinct flavors, no caramel or roasted notes.
Plain ale with black malt additions ...nothing more.
This beer had a beautiful dark color and reddish held to the light, one of the best looking beers I have ever seen ...unfortunately, that was the only good thing to say about it ... I don't buy beers to look at them.
To be fair, I will try to find a fresher one and change this post if in fact it is better.
