Originally reviewed: 8/27/09. Poured into my pint glass a deep charcoal black with a thin tan head on top. This doesn’t stick around very long, but it leaves some sticky lace rings in its wake. Smells very roasty, with a big presence of chocolate and hints of coffee. This smells warming and pleasant. The mouth is little too carbonated than my liking for the style, but it’s decent enough. There’s a subtle twang at the first sip. Slightly acrid and, some might say, sour. This washes away though and is replaced by a big black coffee-like bitterness that hits the spot. Finishes with a nice toasted flavor on the mouth. This is a pretty good porter. I’m glad I had the opportunity to try it!

From Charleston Beer Exchange. Light brown with little head. Aroma is coco and roasted nuts. Flavor is chocolate and coffee. Toasty finish. Really great. Blows their other beers out of the water!

I like porters but this one was lacking. The malts are okay. The hops are lacking. The aromas are not too strong. This is a good local brew but not my cup of tea.

12oz bottle brought back by a friend. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head. Malty aroma with chocolate and roasty coffee. Coffee flavor up front with sweet malt, chocolate and a roasty finish. Light colored pour made me think it would be weak, but it’s a solid porter.

Pours a deep very dark chestnut brown almosr black color with dark mahognay edges when held to a light source and a 1.5 finger foamy beige head thar quickly dissipates into a lasting ring and cap leaving minimal lacing. Smokey roasted malt aroma with chocolate, caramel, hazelnut, oatmeal, toffee, coffee bean and burnt toast notes. Medium body with a huge smoked/roasty malt presence. Chocolate malt, oatmeal, toffee, espresso beans are all very prominent in the flavor with subtle hops and a nice hazelnut and lactic caramel taste. This is a pretty complex beer for the style and is very well balanced. Roasty and sweet with a nice bitter dry finish. Extremely quaffable.

12oz bottle courtesy of fatboyjim1 poured into a tulip. Pours dark chestnut brown out of the bottle and settles in almost completely black in the glass. An aggressive pour produces a huge creamy tan head that lasts for a long, long time and leaves great lacing. The aroma is dominated by a dry, roasted malt smell with hints of espresso and dark chocolate. There honestly isn’t much in the way of sweetness in the aroma. The taste is all about the dry roasted espresso with hints of dark malt sweetness in the background. There is a bit more chocolaty sweetness than in the aroma, but the coffee is still the major player here. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and tingly on the palate. This beer surprised me and is a top notch porter. Having read some of the previous reviews, it is fairly evident that Palmetto decided to dial up the coffee presence and this coffee lover certainly enjoyed that decision.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2009
12oz bottle, purchased at Charleston Beer Exchange. Pours very deep brown with a bit of a reddish hue, topped with a moderate sized tan head. Nice fresh roasted coffee aroma, with highlights of cocoa and smoke. Roasted chocolate malt and espresso hit the palate first, and are joined by caramel and mild hops. Bittersweet chocolate finish. Flavor is not quite as impressive as the aroma, but its still a tasty beer.
