4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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 wasn’t a seasonal. Easily one of the best porters I’ve had.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown with a medium sized tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Potent nose of mocha with some subtle floral notes. Flavor of dark chocolate and coffee with some caramel notes and a subtle flavor laced through that I swear tastes like celery?! Slight grassy and woody notes as well. Mouthfeel is a little too watery for a porter, but doesn’t spoil the overall experience of the nose and the taste. Finish is coffee-like and pleasantly bitter.

Growler… Clear, deep ruby beer with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The nose is mainly of toasted nuts and easygoing milk chocolate. Almonds really stand out. Medium to full-bodied and slick with stinging carbonation. Moderate chocolate and espresso flavors. Hopped up nicely. Lengthy, moderately bitter, coarse/dry finish. Growler courtesy of TheCheeseMan!

On tap. Quick note.....all the 2011 and earlier ratings of this that mention thin bodied be aware this is a different beer. Heavier malt bill after the law changed in Mississippi, which helped it for the better. Pours dark ruby almost black with a one finger meringue head. Caramel nose, good body, light bitterness other than from the roast. Toffee and chocolate candy. One of the better this brewery makes.

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.
