Yum. This Porter does the trick satisfying a dark yet medium bodied Porter. Aroma is chocolate malt with an additional hint of sweetness. Taste is immediatley met with a mellow pallate which is why this brown porter is so drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark brown with a thick white head. The aroma is of dark roasted malts with a slightly sweet, fruity afternote. The taste is pretty standard for a porter - rich and malty, although not very dry but not overly sweet either. It has a creamy mouthfeel. While this beer is a pretty textbook example of a porter, it has none of the flaws or mistakes that many porters have.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear dark brown wirh a thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate and light roast. Flavor of cocoa, bitter chocolate, and lots of roasted malt and roasted bitterness in the finish. Sturdy palate. Great porter!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle to pint glass. Pours nearly black with a few amber edges, tan head which laces nicely. I get chocolate and some bready malt, maybe a little dark fruit, a fig. Taste is very balanced, sweet molasses,bread, a little coffee and chocolate, but blended well. Has a very slight dry bitter finish that complements it quite nicely. Silky mouthfeel. A very nice beer from Blackstone.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on 9/10/11 from a 12oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods Green Hills. Pours an extremely dark, opaque, mahogany-amber with a thick tan head that slowly recedes to rocky lace, leaving a bit of residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is darkly roasted coffee and chocolate, with some lightly sweet molasses, fig, and dark date, and some darker bread malt notes as well. The flavor is very dry, with darkly roasted coffee, dark chocolate, darkly toasted bread, and a bit of bitterness, with the fruity notes absent. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long roasted coffee and lightly bitter dark chocolate finish.

Draft. Pours dark brown with a medium-sized light tan head. Aroma and flavor are rich malt, fair amount of chocolate, slightly lactic taste. Really delicious; quite drinkable as well. This would be one of my go-to beers if I lived in Nashville. Phooey.
