Warner Robins, Ga. - Lazy Dog Growler - 22 oz bomber. Dark black pour with some ruby red/purple tints, tight mocha colored head. Aroma has some nice topsoil accents, a touch of bittersweet bakerís chocolate. Good solid everyday porter flavor with some nice topsoil accents, a touch of unsweetened chocolate, a touch of nuttiness and just a hint of licorice in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice chalky presence to it. Pretty decent.

Bottle. This porter smells and tastes a littel sour and the body is a bit thin for my liking. That said its not bad a a great deal.

Had on tap at the brewery. Just an average porter to me. Pours a dark, somewhat transparent brown. Thin to no head. Carbonation and mouthfeel both medium- about right for a porter. Coffee, earthy, chocolate notes all present. Some hoppinness but a bit of a strange finish sort of off-balanced. Just a bit bland for me.

Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a deep black, with a medium tan head that fades fairly quickly, with moderate lacing. Nose is coffee and dark malt. Taste follows the nose. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side, with a medium length finish. Pleasant, but not exceptional.
