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 it’s 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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler. Pours a clear brown body with a nice tight bubbled light brown head that slowly receded to a thin covering. The nose is nicely chocolaty with minimal roastiness, slightly sweet, just a touch of hops, and a little nuttiness. The flavor is just slightly sweet with nice chocolate malt and some lighter toffee notes up front. Fades to a lightly hoppy and coffee laced finish. Light to medium bodied with moderate soft carbonation and some lingering coffee and caramel notes. Pretty nice sessionable Porter. It was not a chore to drink a whole growler of this in an evening.

growler from cbk on 3/21/2010.
crystal clear mahogany brown colored pour with a small off white head and some spotty marks of foam.
it smells of grain, ash, faint chocolate, coffee-like nuttiness, caramel, soured milk, herbaceous and spicy dry hops.
it smells and tastes ’green’. it lacks depth and dimension.
light bodied with a sharp mouth feel. 6/3/6/3/12/3.0
