On tap, Bosco’s, Little Rock. Poured dark brown, with a nice tan head. Smoky, roasty aroma and flavor, with notes of chocolate. A nice amount of hops in the finish. Very nice.

maltdog (616) - Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Nashville. Pinebark mulch brown, clingy lace. Gym locker/mildewy sweatsock reek. Flavor of wax, sour apples, and chocolate syrup. Light body with a gylcerin/cream soda texture. Seriously bad beer.

beerguy101 (5276) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Tasted on tap at Nashville Brewpub. This porter pours a dark brown color. Small sized beige head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee with some roasted malt. A medium bodied porter. Malts are slightly roasty and chocolate. Hops are floral and earthy. Nice chocolate flavors. Nice balance. Would make a nice session porter. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

On tap at the Little Rock Location. yummy! faint roasted aroma. dark brown color. chocolately, but not over the top. impressive balance of flavors with appropriate mouth feel. Finish has a dessicating mild bitterness.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 25, 2006
The body was a very dark ruby that was almost brown. The aroma was pears with perfume and a hint of chocolate. The taste was chocolate with some tobacco and coffee. There was an unexpected bitter finish. Thin bodied.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
(On tap) Memphis. Black, but not completely opaque, there’s a reddish hue in there, and a creamy, beige head. Malty, lightly burned aroma. Medium-bodied with lots of burned malt leaving some bitterness. Very dry finish. 280306

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Nashville. Deep, translucent and sunset brown in color with a dusty khaki white head. Cocoa comes out in the aroma with a chocolate coca-cola parallel formation. Chocolate rye seems to have spawned from the scant contribution of black malt. Hershey syrup hardened over salty pecans. Far too light in body, but an iced mocha flavor tries to shoo that notion away. Heath toffee bars and a coffee grind selectively picked and swallowed off the countertop. Chocolate mousse with instant coffee called for in the recipe. Fair, but I tend to scorn these lighter renditions of the style.

Kevin (2046) - New Mexico, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Tap. Red hued dark brown with a lacing yellow tinted head. Fruity nose. Bittersweet chocolate. Light off sweet grape finish that is dry. Cocoa remains, not bad. Ap-3 ar-6 tas-6 pal-3 ov-14

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Draft. Aroma is very, very faint. I picked up some sweet chocolate and dark roasted malts. Flavor is very sweet for a porter, with some coffee, chocolate, and spicy hop backbone. Some burnt taste in the finish. Overall, not a complex palate brew, but a firm example of the style. This one would pair well with food.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Thicker tan head w/ great lacing. Poured a dark brown/nearly black. Tasted rich, thicker mouthfeel. Tasted sweet, with some chocolatey undertones.
