S: Very faint.... maple. Tiny bit coffee but barely anything.
A: Looks ok I guess. Dark brown. Little head. Little retention.
T: Like the smell very faint. A bit of coffee. Dry. A hint of spice. A hint of malty candyness or so. Have to work hard to get much of anything.
M: Very dry. Dull bitter finish. Light
Overall this is an ok beer. Little is wrong but little is right. Almost like drinking a water.

Good porter. Pours a very dark brown almost black with a quick forming head. Good lacing. Good taste/ not too smoky. Iím not one for the porters that taste like theyíve been a barrel for ages. This one is good.

A wonderful and full bodies porter. What this one lacks in depth it makes up in being a near ideal specimen of what makes a tasty porter great for the winter months

We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. We are always ecstatic to try a new Lazy Magnolia beer; we like to root for the home team. I enjoyed this new stout. Rob, confessed that it was "too stout" for him.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Dark brown with deep red. Chocolate and roast aromas. A thin feel. Powdery malts with coffee flavors. Ok atbest.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 growler. near black with a large, foamy, tan head. dark fruity roasted aroma minus chocolate. flavor is nutty, oddly nutty, with floral hops that are quite strong considering the color of this, but in no way bitter. the roastiness just doesnít come through. i would have called it a brown ale with lots of english EKGs with my eyes closed. light bodied. its a nice beer, i kind of like the fresh floral notes. i possibly get a little basement dust sometimes.

Excellent porter. Thick chocolaty head with hints of caramel, chocolate and toffee in the aroma. Very well balanced taste. A big winner from Lazy Magnolia.

Flavor:†The taste is fairly malty, pretty similar to the nose, with a light bitterness to it
Palate:†It has a medium body, with a fairly soft carbonation, and a slightly dry finish
First Mississippi rating! Jealous Kramer? I know you are, as I ticked another state. Only 8 more to go, watch out Dakotas, Iím coming for you (or most likely not). Anyway, this beer is fine, average, and not memorable.
I wasnít all that impressed, but its fine.

Nice balanced malty yet bittered well, drinkable, and goes great with southern food and weather. Roast and chocolate notes throughout with a clean yeast profile. Just a hair of fruitiness. One of my fav. porters and itís perhaps my favorite style, good stuff!

Light brown. Looks like the gulf after a hurricane. Aroma of toast, chocolate, chocolate malt, cocoa. Thin watery texture. Very flavorful.
