UPDATED: AUG 20, 2013 12 oz. Bottle poured into glass. Nice tan/khaki head. Some lacing.Smells of citrus (tangerine) chocalate, and grizzly straight. Taste is bright citrus hops, bitter chocolate, smoked coffee beans and caramel. Great brew from Alabama. One of my all time favorites and from my state.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
This beer is a dark brown colored brew with a medium sized off-white colored head. The aroma is a distinct blend of malt, hops and cocoa. the taste is really good and is a fine example of an American Porter. The palate is a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- A really good porter that is another example of a fine beer from Back Forty

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 Bottle pour at RC Brewfest. Dark, amber brown with a thick foamy head. Rich, earthy aroma - lots of malt and roasted nut. Full, rich taste, strong roasted malt with some nut and sweetness to it, but with some bitterness for balance. Nice aftertaste.

Remarkably good citrusy hoppy porter, reminiscent of Jose Marti. I definitely didn’t expect a beer of this quality from an unknown in Alabama. Good stuff.

Excellent beer! Tan head, with a full aroma of chocolaty and roasted notes. Medium to heavy mouth feel with a full body and a nice bitter finish.

Craft beer advent calendar day 2! Pours a clear dark brown with a small beige head leaving bits of lace on the glass. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, smoke, rich maltiness, coffee, and toffee. Flavour is cocoa, coffee, roasted malts, mild bitterness, light smoke, mild dark fruit esters and a dry finish. Much better day 2 beer.

An average porter with a better than average name. Its a shame the beer couldn’t have incorporated some actual kudzu into the beer... Josh brought this one back with him from Mississippi in 2013.

12oz bottle. Dark brown pour. Aroma of toasted grains, burnt malt. Hearty flavor! Burnt sugar bitterness, sharp licorice, bold pine, heavy roast. Rich flavors. It’s a big Porter. (3736)
