3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours the color of a Coke, but not as clear. Some chocolate in the aroma. A little thinner in the flavor than I expected from the name, but not a bad porter. A touch sweeter than I like without more bitter and roaster flavors to balance, though.

Fairly clear cola brown head laces nicely. There’s a lot of chocolate here. Lots of nice roasty flavors but just a hair too sweet.

Now this one should change anyone’s mind about Atlanta Brewing and make them willing to give the brewery another chance. Dark brown body with a khaki head. Rich mocha aroma. Full maltiness in the flavor and this is very chocolatey. I really like this beer, although it falls into that gray area between robust porter and sweet stout. Still extremely yummy.

Bottle. This is a nice viscous porter with some good roasted notes and smooth mouth feel.

Bottle. This is a porter that is too thin and too high in alcohol. When I think southern beer I do not think of porter.

I picked this one up on my way home from Missouri. It smells of light chocolate, coffee, and heavy roasts. Very little head and zero light shown through. Lightly sweet, and overall a beer that I would drink again if I come across it.

One of my favorites from this brewery. Full bodied and good for the autumn / winter season. Poured from a bottle. Could have slightly more carbonation... Slightly..
I like this beer and have purchased it multiple times and will continue to do so.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a small tan head on it. Nose is sweet and caramel with some chocolate in there. Taste has some roasting in it, but has a lot of sweetness in the finish without much else to balance it out. Not a great example of a porter.
