Medium-dark brown. Nice chocolate nose with light nuts. Smooth, chocolate taste. Full body. Nice bit of toast dries out the finish a bit.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Nearly opaque black-brown. Slight diacetyl in aroma and also slight huskiness. Some chocolate. Low carbonation. Rich roasted chocolate malt lingers on the tongue. Coffee flavors predominate but the huskiness detracts.

wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Decent porter, but another boring beer from mooon river. Not watery, which was nice, but not creamy and full bodied either. Lightly dry taste and finish. Light coffee and nut taste. Could have used something else in the taste.

Ratings by Veeve, Back by Popular Demand, on Vacay in the lovely Savannah, Georgia. This beer is found on tap at the MoonRiver restaurant and brewing site on Bay Street in Savannah, GA. This beer was my 2nd favorite personally but obviously objectively the best beer among the 7 beers of the sampler they were offering yesterday 5/22/08 and likely among all their beers as it is strikingly impressive. The description of this beer on the menu said: "Close your eyes, take a sip and think chocolate. Case in point - not all dark beers have to be sharp and bitter. Don’t be afraid of the dark." Well I AM CERTAINLY NOT AFRAID OF THE DARK. This beer is fantastic. Though it is bitter (despite the menu’s description), especially towards the finish, and in the aftertaste, it blends in perfectly with the overall balance of all the flavors and is not overwhelming. It has good lacing, two parallel lines broken up in light weak paisleys. good darker brown ring around the rim. dark brown sugar/coke hue. milk chocolate, coffee, bitterness. delicious.
