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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

OK, this is much better for Advent Calendar Day 2. Mahogany with light head. Malty aroma with nice touch of sticky booze. Warm malt flavor. Some chocolate, a bit of sourness and hops. Nice aftertaste with some burnt toffee notes.
