COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bottle split @ CBC Clerko. Deep brown pour with a modest tan head. Fresh baked glazed donuts and pain au chocolate. Plenty of toasted grain. Assertive earthy coffee, burnt marshmallow and brown sugar. The taste is nicely balanced, not overly sweet or bitter. Chocolate donuts offset by robust coffee and hop bitterness. General charred grain. Smooth and easy to drink. Oily. Nicely executed.

glennmastrange (2431) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle. Heavy dark chocolate and mild coffee for the malt, light herbs and earth for the hops and yeast. Head is small, wispy, off-white with a spot or two of lacing, and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark brown with a red tint. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a lively carbonation. Nothing outrageous in this Porter, but everything is in the right place for the style.

BelgianBeerGal (3386) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2015
Jacksonville bottle. Pours out dark brown with a huge brown head and foamy lacing that lasts. Aroma is a mixture of baking and sweeter chocolate. Nice espresso bitterness in the flavor. Very nice porter that reminded me somewhat of a dry stout at times. Phenomenal with fresh, sweet strawberries.

SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pours a very dark, almost opaque brown that holds a smallish head of tan. Aroma of chocolate and roast malts. The flavor is lightly sweet, roasty, nutty and chocolate delivered on a full bodied smooth palate.
