This beer was very disappointing, it was at most average the smell of chocolate and malts were well mixed. However it poured and the the khaki colored head dissipated almost instantly, then the body was too thin and the tastes were not very clean.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The complex aroma was roasted malt dark malt and woody. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The creamy flavor contained notes of mildly vinous wood brown malt and dark malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Tasted from a growler poured less than an hour earlier from The Beer Growled labeled as Red Hare Chocolate Porter. Really nice beer. Big chocolate, very smooth. Very satisfying.

On tap at the brewery. Pours black with a coffee brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has light dark grains up front with a bit of earthiness and a good amount of dark chocolate. Flavor has a nice dark chocolate note that combines with a bit of roasted malts.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep, opaque, brownish sable with a very thick, fine-bubbled and rather persistent tan head. Aroma has an overtone of semi-sweet chocolate and roast coffee and licorice notes. Scrumptious flavor has chocolate, coffee, nutty and licorice notes and just a hint of - apple? Brandy? Smooth, firm-bodied texture has minimal fizz, but you feel it going all the way down. I hope that Red Hare makes it as an established microbrewery.

On cask at Atlanta Cask Fest. Pours a dark porter brown with an off-white head. Nose is roasted malts, cocoa, some mild hops, and a bit of coffee along with the dark chocolate presence. Flavor is similar with the chocolate rounding out and balancing all things. Interesting light to medium-bodied porter.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 ounce pint - Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Served up a basic black body with a very slim, beige head, due mainly to the high Taco Mac pour.
Smell: A moderate scent of chocolate on the nose with accompanying underlying dark, sensibly roasty malts. Very low ester profile.
Taste: Chocolate-toned malts, some sweet-tasting crystal malts secondary with a half shot of sweet southern tea. Slight, indistinct berry-esque fruitiness. Low hop character, very low bitterness. Particularly mild grain astringency from the dark malts, it’s enough, with the alcohol, to give some counterbalance to the sweetness. Some alcohol encroaching on the chocolaty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s pretty decent and a little reassuring, as I’d worry Red Hare would go 0 for 4 with me.
