nimbleprop (5571) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2015
On tap at the brewery, pours a murky, deep brown with some fluffy, off white head. Solid nose, nutty, toast, molasses, inviting coffee, a little caramel, a little mocha. Flavor has brown sugar and molasses, malt, toast, nutty coffee grounds, dark chocolate. Full, dry finish. Solid.

eRock_2013 (320) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Another straitforward, unsophisticated, but successful brew from Palmetto. Pours a ruby brown, classic porter appearance. A pleasant light-bodied porter, heavy on the roasted coffee on the nose and on the palate. Aroma is mostly espresso with some sweet caramel malt. Taste is coffee with caramel creamer, not much complexity. A nice sweet espresso finish. No hoppiness worthy of note. Light, refreshing, yet flavorful.

Bottle at Porch Nite thanks to Brisben. Pours dark brown to black with a thin tan head. Aroma is dark roasted coffee and some roast. Not much maltiness. Flavor follows with lots of coffee. Nice beer.

Part of local flight at Charleston tap house. Pleasantly suprised for Palmetto. Strikes the right porter notes. Bit heavy handed with the coffee (but it is, espresso porter, after all) and somewhat thin mouthfeel (but it is Charleston, after all) but otherwise no complaints. Drinkable if not especially memorable.

hombrepalo (1924) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2014

chinchill (2771) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2014 12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Pour is blackish and opaque with a bubbly head that soon reduces to a thick ring. Aroma: coffee dominates and smells more like brewed coffee than beans. Enough dark roast to show even with the strong coffee. Flavor: black coffee and dark roasted grains in about equal measure. Both linger on in the aftertaste where there’s some (unobjectionable) char as well. O: medium+ body; Properly carbonated and fairly smooth.

EyeAmBaldman (368) - Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Pours dark mahogany with a small tan head. Aroma is all coffee. Taste is like an espresso with a kick. Nice coffee bitterness with a creamy mouth feel. A delicious porter.

ARH (777) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2015 On tap poured into a shaker. Mocha like smells of sweet coffee and milk chocolate and lactose sugar come through, but they?re fairly mellow. It pours a dark, opaque brown-black body topped by a medium tan ring with a runny lace. A medium sweetness is supported by a light bitterness. The texture is watery and slick, with very little help from a mostly flat carbonation. The medium body finishes with smooth mocha notes, supported by caramel, and a hint of nuttiness and a spicy clove note. The finish is mostly espresso in flavor and grittiness with a clove cleanliness. The aftertaste is dry and clean spice.
