Pours very dark with a small head. Lots of roasting in the nose of this one that also comes through in the taste. Quite a bit of maltiness, too.

My overall favorite beer, the Exodus Porter is a great brew for even the serious beer drinker. It’s a full bodied beer that has the perfect balance of sweet and bitter. The strong palate is soothed away by the hint of chocolate malt in the aftertaste. If you like dark beer, this is what you’ve been looking for.

Pours dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Smells chocolaty. Taste is chocolate with hints of cocoa bitterness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Sweetwater Exodus Porter finishes with a touch of dark chocolate bitterness.

Man this was tasty! Opaque color with a subtle hop bitterness. Thick and chewy (medium body my ass!) with flavors of bitter chocolate and prunes. Awefrickinsome!!!

Wow! What a great porter! Pleasing notes of bitter chocolate and light roast on the nose. Deep ruby in color with small, quickly disappearing head. Medium body with a nice velvety mouthfeel. Cocoa puffs and bold hops envelop the tongue. A terrific drinker. Thanks to JRob-21.

This is one of my favorite offerings from Sweetwater. Praise Ninkasi that it is available again! It pours a deep, rich, dark-chocolate brown with a thick, light tan head. Smoky aroma has unsweet chocolate, coffee and molasses notes plus a hint of miso. Flavor has a roast coffee core plus chocolate, nutty and molasses notes and a hint of caramel. Smooth, firm texture has plenty of fizz and leaves a nice tingly mocha finish.

Pours a deep ruby with a 1-finger light khaki head that disappears after a couple minutes and doesn’t leave much lacing. Good carbonation. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, and spices. Taste follows suit with plenty of chocolate/caramel sweetness and a very mild hop finish. Very sweet for its style. Body is big enough to let you know it’s there, but thin enough to remind you that you aren’t drinking a stout, which makes for easy drinking. Very good, but not mind-blowing. Good for a Friday night relaxer or for a porter/stout newbie.

Very dark red (almost black) . This beer is like a liquid dessert; immediate chocolate flavor that evolves into a malty finish. Heavy but smooth. A great beer to finish off the night.
