deaconmike (460) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUL 14, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Bottle at Local 3. Deep walnut with creamy head. Aroma of chocolate and roast. Taste was sweet with a slightly dry, bitter finish. The roast and chocolate flavor come through nicely. Body is a bit light and the beer goes down real smooth. Very enjoyable porter. On tap at Taco Mac 10/12/13. I found the draft version to have heavier ans creamier body. Very good.

It pours dark brown with a brown head. There are moderate fruit aroma with Roast, chocolate, and some nut. There are flavors of roast and citrus with chocolate, oats, and nut. It has a moderate feel that is on the heavy side with a moderately high bitter finish. It has a fairly high level of carbonation. Overall it is a malt forward ale with a pleasant balance of citrus hops.

Dark brown, tan head. Donít get any smoothness you would expect of an oatmeal. Mild chocolate flavor, sweetness a little, followed by a little bitterness on the tail end.

At the brewery : Nice smell of chocolate and medium roast. Taste is the same with medium-light mouthfeel. Easy drinking porter but on the lighter side so good for warmer days maybe. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
