Head takes a second to get it's shit together, and gets bored and leaves (brownish). Aroma of roasted malts and a little coffee. The taste is amazing and I'm proud to know it came from Chucktown. I get roasted malts and chocolate the most. But yes there is a faint coffee(ness) there, though I think this is the roasted malts. Very enjoyable with respectable complexities. I can help you get this is if you're interested.

Draft at Palmetto, May 2015. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (Oreo cookie, chocolate, roasted grain), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Quite a tasty stout/porter...one of the better of four brews I tried here.

Originally reviewed: 8/27/09. Poured into my pint glass a deep charcoal black with a thin tan head on top. This doesnít 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 itís decent enough. Thereís 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. Iím 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 itís 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 isnít 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.
