My favorite of their offerings. Beautiful deep brown pour with some ruby around the edges. Off-white head fades quickly but leaves some great lacing. Flavor is a nice balance of bitter roasted malt, coffee, and some caramel and chocolate. Surprisingly light for all that. This is would make a good session beer. Really nice porter.

Tasted on 12/8/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours almost completely black, very intense for a standard porter, with an average tan head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is dark roast, some milk chocolate, and lightly sweet vanilla, a touch of coffee, and some very nice herbal and bright citrus hops. The flavor is all of the same mentioned in the nose with an added dusty bitter note. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter lightly roasted and dusty hops finish. This is quite good.

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.

Smokey aroma with hints of malt and cocoa. Great looking dark brown color with a thick well laced off white head. Taste of smoke and cocoa with a slightly dry feel. Smoked malt finish.

StefanSD (2191) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 19, 2014
12 oz bottle courtesy of secret santa. pours a dark brown color with a medium sized beige head that has good retention. The aroma is mild with dark chocolate, toffee and something spicy. The taste mirrors the aroma with dark baking chocolate in the forefront backed up by a toffee malt base. The palate was light and the carbonation soft. Finished short and weak. Overall: Not bad, but needs work. Gotta say--All is right in the world when bible belt areas are brewing decent crafts.

Bottle from winter Santa. Got the elusive AL tick. Not much aroma for me some malt. Light on palate and higher on carbonation. Malt in taste. Not much there but not a bad brew at all

Very nice porter. Chocolate, nougat, very pleasant beer. The surprising part is that the bottled date was almost exactly a year ago. Holds up well.

3.18.2014 bottling date. Clear brown color with tan head. Dusty, dry black malt, dark fruit, dark chocolate aromas. Frothy light mouthfeel. Dry chocolate, dark fruit, dust, mild coffee flavors___mildly infected---not too bad, though.

My first beer from Alabama and it's pretty good. Nice aroma and very decent flavor. I can dig it.

Un porter qui porte la tunique appropriée. Une tête beige bien dense et solidifiée. Une longue traînée sur la paroi de mon verre. Des arômes vivants de mats rôtis, de petite fumée et de houblons citronnés. Des saveurs de malts très tournés, de chocolat sec et amer, de grains qui fument et de noix calcinées. Une bouche assez mince comme le style le prévoit ordinairement. Une texture qui n’est pas aqueuse. Un pétillement juste. Une finale agréable avec ce houblon fruité qui perce les malts bien noircis. Un porter agréable qui ne casse pas la baraque.
