3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Crystal Beer Emporium in Savannah. Funny, ’cause the guy next to me asked for something local and they gave him this ... never mind it’s brewed in Virginia. This is a dark, nutty and creamy brew, opaque and swallowing the light. It delivers with a chewy malt, semi-sweet. Quite nice drinker, ending with a sweet toffee finish. (#4702, 7/23/2012)

Draft pint at Lighthouse Pizza, Tybee Island. Brown with a nice little covering of foam. Nose of roasted walnut, mocha and caramel. Flavors are a similar blend, with a light touch of citrus and resin to sweep away the sweetness on the finish. Light-medium body is well balanced and drinkably watery, with a medium carbonation.

Tried this beer at Mellow Mushroom Savannah. Has a very nice nutty aroma with hints of chocolate. Color is deep brown with some reddish highlights. Very nice lacing all the way down to completion. Beer starts with a nutty chocolate flavor and finishes with some nicely bitter hops that fade smoothly not to overpower the body. All in all very pleased with this offering.

I completed the Savannah Century Bike Ride yesterday and really wanted a beer. Lucky for me, the ride ends at The Distillery, so getting a good beer was easy. I saw this and hadn’t even heard of a new Savannah brewery so I tried it. This is a hoppy brown, much like Terrapin’s India Brown. Rich malt. Sharp hoppy bitterness. Hop this place succeeds. First beer is solid.
