Black like I love them to be. Coffee cocoa smell and taste. Good brew from an even better state.

light chocolatier porter. Mildly sweet. Not bad. Some roastiness. Not sure why make a lighter beer at 5.5%.

Well this is a nice SC local micro-brew porter. Pretty standard attributes for the style: off-black appearance, coffee/cocoa flavors, roasty chocolate malt finish. Did feature an exceptional smoothness and creaminess- this texture on the palate was the highlight. If you're ever in South Carolina or in Charleston in particular, this is your go-to porter.

On tap into pint glass. Beaufort.
Appearance: dark brown with small tan head. Mostly Opaque.
Aroma: roasty. hints of chocolate.
Taste: mildly bitter. Small amount of sweetness as well.
Palate: medium body. Well carbonate for frothy texture in the finish.
Overall: a decent beer. Less flavor and body then expected for a porter. Drinks more like a dark ale.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bomber via trade. Upon opening this one it began to foam up but stopped as it began to bubble over. Upon pouring it was like 85% huge foamy light beige head with a thinner density of pitch black. Aroma was solid, dusty chocolate, touch of band aid, milk, hint of vanilla. Palate is overloaded with fizziness, medium body that is slightly milky and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor suffers from the gushing, light chocolate, dry dark toast, milk, some dark fruit skin. Something is defintely off with this beer.

22oz shared thanks to dmac. Pours a dark brown color with a HUGE foamy tan head. Big chocolate notes, caramel, and smoke. Taste is slightly sour, roasted coffee, chocolate, burnt chocolate, nail polish remover, and hints of caramel. Might be infected due to the amount of carbonation and off flavors.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Tommy Condon's - Aroma of roasted malts with hints of nuts and chocolate. A solid dark brown pour with a thin head and minimal lacing. The taste is nutty with hints of coco and roasted malts. Small but welcomed bitterness in the finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a nice session porter that was refreshing on a warm Charleston afternoon.

Bottle share at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Thanks Ken! Pours a mostly dark brown-black with a one finger tan head. Head gone in under 60 seconds. Little lacing. Used a snifter. Aroma of roasted malts, hint of coffee, dark chocolate. Taste fell a little flat. You get the roasted malts fine but it just seemed to not exude much in flavor. A little thin for my taste regarding a porter. Medium body, light carbonation. Finish is roasty and slightly bitter.
