Our Alligator Ale is a rich mahogany colored ale with a surprisingly smooth finish. This beer is perfectly balanced with flavors of dark malts and hops.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2008 Draught sample at Stogies and Stouts 2008. Dark brown pour with a vanishing light tan head. No lacing. Nose is better than the flavor, soapy hops, dark malts, chocolate and licorice. Flavor profile is terribly metallic and vegetal at first, thankfull that calms down later on. Chocolate and roasted malts are finally allowed to come through. Thin, even for a Porter, and watery to boot. Finish brings some of the metallic notes back. Overall just an odd beer.

From tap at hops : Very dark brown, with a foamy light brown head. Nice lacing around the glass. Chocolate aroma, very drinkable medium body. Nice roasted chocolate taste. Clean finish, hoppy taste toward the end.

Poured a dark brown, medium bodied, with a thick, foamy light brown head. Smelled of toasted malts and some light chocolate. Pretty standard porter aromas. The flavor actually wasnt too bad. Actually had some decent body to it, with a malty chocolatey flavor. Some light roast backed it up. Drinks fairly well actually, almost certainly Hops best brew.

Shockoe festival Richmond VA-Draft: Weak charred oak aroma. Black color, thin yellow head. Like the Hoptoberfest, this too tasted of cream corn. Finish is smoky.

Aroma was full of buttery daicetyl, haven’t experienced a beer like this sense England. Now I can handle a little bit of butteryness in a porter, but this was awful with mixed with the hop profile. just plain awful

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2007
12oz mug at the Manchester, CT location. Pours mahogany with a thin tan head. Smells chocolatey with hints of peppery hops. Taste is watery and unpleasant with some chocolate notes. I ended up sending this one back. A drainpour to say the least.

hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2007
Draft... West Palm Beach location... Clear, almost black, ruby ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Subtle milk chocolate aroma. Malty flavor with moderate sweetness, but thin and easily balanced by the minerally, moderately bitter hops. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with restrained carbonation. Short, watery, mild chocolate finish. A bit too thin and well-balanced to really be "my kind of porter", but nicely constructed nonetheless. Hops seems to be stingy with the barley.

Tmoney99 (13602) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Draft sampler at the brewpub in Sanford, FL. Poured a clear dark brown color with a medium white fizzy head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Medium toasted malty aroma. Medium body. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of average duration.
