Bottle from Erica and Chris. Dark brown body that some light comes thru with a frothy beige head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malts, caramel and floral hops. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body with good carbonation. A pleasant roasted coffee bitterness in the aftertaste along with some lingering caramel notes.

Bottle at Bob’s Steakhouse in Nashville. Served very cold. Dark brown with virtually no head. Aroma is nutty, ash and coffee with bitter chocolate notes. Very sweet taste, very little hop character. Slick mouthfeel. Decent porter.

Draft at brewery. The pour is a nice darker brown. The aroma is very interesting. Sweet and malty nose blend well. The taste is more nut brown than porter to me. Smooth and nutty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
