2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has a pleasant malty aroma. Nice deep brown body with a thin tan head. Flavor is kind of weak, slightly roasty, but not much to pick up on. Body and texture is kind of light. Overall, thereís not much character to this, and as a result, I donít really care for it.

Bottle @ The Hare & Hound Pub, Landrum SC.
This is a solid offering from a solid local brewery. I had it along with a Guinness beef stew (broke with convention and did NOT order a Guinness...) and it was ideal. One word to describe this beer overall: wonderful. Pleasant, enjoyable, smooth, silky, easy -- a great dinner companion.

Pours black with pretty large head. Smells like malt and chocolate. Smooth texture swallow with a weak watery finish. Thick aftertaste.

Bottle. Dark brown with red undertones and an average sized tan creamy head. A sweet aroma but the taste is mostly hops and the chocolate flavor it claims to have is definitely muted. A bitter finish on the tongue. A decent beer but it was $ 9.00 for the 6 pack and a Yuengling black and tan is just as good.

Bottle pours dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is light roast and sweet malt. First taste is sweet roasted malt with a little vanilla hint. Finish is slightly sweet and roasted malt. Pretty good

This dark chocolate pour with a soft, light amber head reeks of chocolate, fruits and roasted coffee. What a fantastic combination of flavors! Lightly bitter and slightly salty, this oatmeal porter has a wonderful smooth feel and almost no aftertaste at all. Itís almost as if you are having that first delightful swallow over and over again! Highly recommended!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours like a coke with no head and pour lacing. Full malty sweet aroma of caramel, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of fig. The flavor is decent, has a good grassy hop balance to the sweet malty taste. But this beer is just way too weak and tastes watered down. Very thin palate - itís like this is a light porter.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2005 I enjoyed this beer... after a few sips I was dissapporinted. But the more I consumed, the better it got. A small but frothy head. A lillte bitter start, but a great chocolate roasted nut finish. Has a light hint of hops that flickers the tounge
