3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up a growler from Whats On Tap in Simpsonville. Hadn’t heard of this new brewery yet. Pours dark brown with red highlights and small khaki head that quickly becomes a ring leaving minimal lacing. Flavors are dark cherry, chocolate, roasted coffe beans, plum. Sweet with a stickiness in the lips, but not cloying. Medium body and crisp carbonation. Some burnt coffee bitterness in the finish. Overall a nice porter and I look forward to more from these guys.

Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate . Pours a a solid dark brown with a long lasting khaki head and abundant lacing The taste is a nice combination of roast, sweet and bitter. Dark roasted malt chocolate, spice and a hoppy bitter finish. Full body and medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a nicely balanced and very drinkable porter.

On tap. Dark brown, almost black. Chocolate and bready aroma. Medium/Light body. Starts bready, rye, bitter, but finishes with an awesome semi-sweet chocolate flavor. Cuts all the bitterness, but also not nearly as sweet as other chocolate porters. Really enjoyable. Worth seeking out.
