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.

drostj (105) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 27, 2012
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.

Pours a translucent, chocolate brown from the bottle with a thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt, and fresh grain. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, slight bitter hoppiness. Good porter, my first beer from alabama.

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)

glennmastrange (2324) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2013
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.
