Porter gains it’s robust, full-bodied flavor from dark rich barley malts. We use a blend of munich, crystal, pale ale, black patent and chocolate malts. To these we add hops, filtered water and ale yeast. No adjuncts, additives or preservatives… Not pasteurized.

This has possibly the weakest aroma of any porter I have tried. However, the taste is definately there. It isnít very sweet and I would have to agree with venom that it has a very earthy feeling to it. It was one of the most bitter porters I have tried. I liked it a lot and would drink it again.

Deep ruby hued chestnut. Frothy, but sticky tan head. Scattered carbonation. Roasted malt aroma of coffee, burnt chocolate and dry nut skins. A bit fluffy but with a heaping of malt flavors. Bittersweet chocolate and singed caramel mixes with harsh black malts, roasted coffee beans and bitter walnut skins. Medium body. Pungent, earthy hoppiness rises to match the rich flavor. Finishes less foamy in body with a long chocolate finish and bitter undertow. The best thing to come from South Carolina, since Nile.

Another decent offering from the Palmetto Brewing Company, although Iím not a big fan of this porter when compared to some of the others Iíve had recently. Very weak aroma as mentioned by Softale, but the flavor packs a little punch. Good coffee roasted flavor although it isnít extremely chocolatey. Good stuff.

Deep ruby-brown. Aroma is pleasant but not very strong or complex. Nose of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. This porter is more flavorful than itís aroma. Iím tasting chocolate, caramel, toffee, coffee and a nice rich maltiness. It doesnít matter if itís summer or winter, this porter would be enjoyable any time of the year.
