Sample at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and hops. Medium body with a roasty character and flavors of chocolate malt, coffee and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a lingering chocolate aftertaste. Decent overall.

Tap. Very dark with tan head with good retention and lots of lacing. Smells roasty and molasses sweet with a bit of burnt coffee. Nice roasty dry flavor. Almost flat, dry finish.

...had a pint at the brewbup. Looked dark brown in the glass with basically no head. Decent roasted malt flavors, with hints of chocolate in there. Finished dryish, with very low carbonation. Better than I expected.

Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Moon River in Savannah, GA. Appearance is a dark coffee brown with a frothy light tan head that laces to the glass. Aroma of dark chocolate, bit of nuts, kind of light but apparent smell. Taste its pretty good, chocolaty with a bit of hazelnut, light bitterness, pretty damn good!

Pour was dark brown . Aroma of coffee and roasted malts.Taste was much sweeter than I expected...almost like a milk stout. Still had the big coffee and roast flavors. Just a touch of bitterness, but blended nicely. Medium amount of carbonation and fairly thin for such a dark porter style. Pretty tasty.

Deep and dark with chocolate after bite. Ultimately this is a porter that doesn’t separate itself from any other. Ok for walking around savanah on a cool day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Moon River poured a dark black pour with a tan head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavor is the same with moderate carbonation.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Fantastic porter. The nose is full of coffee and espresso with some chocolate notes. The beer is a dark dark brown with almost no head. The taste is sweet and malty countered by the coffee and some bitter hops. The palate is medium to full and silky smooth. Great porter.

changeup45 (1716) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Very deep brown color with a creamy head. The palate is also a bit creamy with coffee, light chocolate, some grain, and vanilla flavors. Just a touch of finishing roasty bitterness. It’s a little on the thin side but overall a solid brew.
