Utah Brewers Cooperative in Salt Lake City, Utah. This sample was sent to me by the brewery. In all honesty, of the 12 they sent, this was the only one I had ever heard of before last month. And even then, I knew the beer for its interesting name and had no idea who brewed it.
Each time I've commented about this brewery's label art, I find out that they are actual people that work for the brewery. Let's see if this one is any different. On this label, there is an almost naked bearded guy hugging one naked woman. He's surrounded by a few other naked chicks, presumably his other wives, and half a dozen angels. "Why Have Just One!" is the slogan that captions the party.
This beer has won a few silver medals, one at the GABF and one by the North American Brewers' Association. Born 08/04/11.
Roasted, nutty aroma with a strong and solid cocoa backing. Chocolaty flavors to start as well, with a light roasted coffee. Fruity plum flavors add a little interest int he background. Carbonation is good. Smooth and creamy texture. A little thin and watery but a flavorful, easy drinker. The 4% alcohol was not noticeable at all. Porters are not my favorite style, mainly because so many have a harsh roasted and burnt component. This was none of that. An enjoyable beer you could drink an entire 6 pack no problem.
