Everything that is great about a porter and an IPA combined. Big hop nose, but toasty malts are there too. Pine is evident in the nose and taste. Big mouthfeel. Aftertaste is that of a porter. Good.

Sample pour, black with light tan head. Nose is fully roasted malts with a light hop background.. maybe very slight coffee? Flavor is much more, but different... hoppy with full roasted malts... grassy, cardboard (but still very fresh)... really good.... nice lacing. really nice lacing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Bottle
Mahogany colour with a thick, foamy head and strong lacing.
A "little chunky" - tastes thick,. as I feel a true dark beer should.
Tastes of caramel, bread, hay, cereal, chocolate, and coffee.
Nice, balanced hops. Well done here.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hoppy Bunny pours a dark black opaque liquid with a firm head of small bubbles. Nose is cedar hops and just a hint of caramel. Taste is dry and tasty cedar hops with medium malt apparent as a roasty nutty coffee smoothness towards the end finishing with a decent amount of good bitters. very nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown leading to black with an ultra thick off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma has some minty accents with a hint of chocolate. Interesting, delectable flavor with some bitter chocolate notes, some spearmint, a touch of citrusy bitterness. Mouthfeel has a bit of twanginess to it. Not bad at all.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I've yet to have a bad brew from this brewery. This one isn't my favorite. It's a solid beer, but it seems a bit flat in flavor. Nose is toasty and hoppy, cocoa, malts. The taste is overly bitter for me. The heavy dark vs the hop is a bit monotone and not well rounded. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for this one. I'll definitely have it again for a second try.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Interesting aromas of sweet, roasted malts and something savory mixed in with the hops - not unlike a sweet and smoky barbecue sauce. Moderate carbonation and a light-to-medium body on this one. Big, smooth roasted flavors. A little bit of an acrid note at the back end. Espresso and a licorice-like spiciness make appearances. The finish is bright with pine resin hops, but not overly bitter. The acidity is just enough to make your mouth water. Very nice ABA.
