Albany, Ga - Warehouse Package Store - 22 oz bomber. Pitch black pour sticky khaki colored head that leaves a nice film of lacing. Aroma has some peanut-like accents, some earthy potting soil. Flavor is pleasant with some light chocolate notes, some peanut butter accents, a touch of potting soul. Mouthfeel is smooth, could be a tad thicker. Pretty solid.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured a black color with a small foamy tan head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was faint toasty malts, caramel, pecan and a hint of molasses. The flavor was dryish and nutty with notes of caramel and molasses, a hint of coffee and vague roast nuts. Medium length roasty and nutty finish. Medium body. Ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, molasses, light caramel, burnt notes, coffee, and a touch of nuts. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a two finger khaki head. There’s a soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with dark chocolate and molasses. The finish has some burnt notes, roasted coffee, some roasted nuts, and a hint of alcohol. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, I got some nuttiness, but I can’t say this makes me think of a pecan pie. It’s more reminiscent of an Imperial Stout than a Porter.
