Bottle. Moderate toasted and chocolate aromas for the malt, light hop and yeast notes of herbs and dough, with hints of wood, alcohol and a faint smell of burnt raisins on a bagel. Head is average size, frothy/creamy, light tan with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown with a red tint. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes slightly sweet, lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, slick with lively carbonation and finishes a little chalky and lightly astringent. This Porter has a some nice depth in both aroma and flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A decent dry porter from, what, Alabama’s only craft brewery? Big on the dark coffee notes works well with raising the bitterness quotient. its overall a bit hoppier than i would want, but its still an outstanding porter.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Liquor Express. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Not getting much on the nose. It’s a bit hop forward on the tongue. Finishes clean. Not my favorite interpretation of the style but solid nonetheless.
