Gulf Porter is the first beer of the year in our Brewer\ís Choice Series. Carefully brewed with select malts, oats, and hops. We rely on the yeast to provide the spicy note and the rich character of the beer. With warm notes of toffee, coffee, and a little chocolate this porter is a beautiful beer. Sure to spark a lively discussion on the finer points of Southern living.

This is pretty dry for a porter, but it has good chocolate. Itís a touch thin but not bad at all.

growler from garmonbozia, pours dark amber with a medium light tan head. Nice roasted malt and pine hop aroma with some coffee notes. Flavor is nice and rich with coffee and chocolate notes mixed with a roasty light smoke in the finish. Really nice and rich, this is a great offering, wish it wasnít a seasonal. Easily one of the best porters Iíve had.

Growler courtesy of garmonbozia. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells roasty with some burned licorice, smooky hints, velvety chocolate and spicy. Taste is layered with lots of roasty malt up front (chocolate, coffee, smoky, peppery) with a full mouthfeel and a sweet finish. A definite home run from this brewer as the person who sent me this one suggests.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2010 Poured from a 1/2 gallon growler. Pours dark mahogany brown that is a deep, clear copper when held up to light underneath a huge, fluffy tan head that recedes fairly quickly to small cap and leaves only spotty lacing. The aroma is sweet with chocolate and caramel but also has a significant toasted nut character with a hint of smoked malts in the background. Maybe some hops but you have to struggle to find it in the nose. The hops are more noticeable in the taste with a bit of an earthy hop kick up front before the smooth chocolate and toasted nuts take over. The finish is dry with some lightly toasted bread and faint hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation and very smooth. This is certainly not the most complex porter but itís exceptionally drinkable and Iím pretty impressed with what Iíve tasted from Lazy Magnolia in terms of darker beers (Southern Pecan and Jefferson stout are even better IMO).

WOW, man Leslie really hit a homerun with this beer. I picked up the growler at Corner Market here in Hattiesburg and anticipating the USM game today, This is by far the best beer LM has put out. Nice dark amber color with tan head. Smell is of chocolate and nuttyness. taste is an awsome dry porter with hints of chocolate and maybe some nuts. This beer has a thicker mouthfeel that any other LM beer I have tried. The growler is also very cool looking as well. Awsome beer Leslie and thanks Matt for the email about the beer.
