On cask at the 1/27/07 Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting listed as Robust Porter: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with an airy coating of dark tan bubbles. Aroma of lightly sweet earthy malt with a touch of dark chocolate. Body starts fairly sweet and caramely malty with a touch of black cherries before a toasty dark malty finish. A nice porter.

On tap at the brewpub for lawschool prom. Nice color and head. Cocoa aroma and roasted coffee malt flavors. Pretty decent porter with a lot more flavor than many I have had recently. A little overpowering with the roasted malt but decent drink nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh batch just tapped. The rating is of the second sample, as the first one was poured into an appropriate but soapy tasting glass.
Choclate and coffee nose. Dark brown with soapy mocha head and good lacing. Better as warmed to room temperature from the cellar. A lively carbonation. Creamy bove-average mouthfeel. A bit like an imperial porter.

Cask Ale tasting at Sweetwater. Very nice porter with great malty taste and finishing "snick" of bitterness. I would have this one again

Pours black with a mostly receding tan head. Aroma of roast malt: predominantly chocolate but ventures towards coffee and spice. Taste is lightly sweet, with notes of chocolate and crystal malt. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with moderate. Enjoyable, the best beer I had at my recent visit.

This dark brown beer seems to be struggling a bit. It’s thin in flavor, but sugary. It may have some quality control issues much like the beers at Park Tavern the last time I visited.

Best beer by far from these guys. Deep brown color with good head. Chocolate malt flavor and it stayed with me. Nice caramel hint as well. Good beer not the best porter but a good one.
