4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful garnet hue. Spicy mouthfeel with a balanced sweet/dry finish. This brew is on the higher end of ABV offered by Yazoo. This beer is my personal favorite, but the recipe is very similar to other microbrewed Rye Ales in other parts of the country.

A very good porter that is brewed as a seasonal beer. Too bad as that makes it very hard to find.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2006 One of the best Porters I’ve enjoyed, and I’m proud to be able to find it in "my backyard". Nice and rich..chocolaty. Like the stout, you will not find a better brewed porter in middle Tennessee in my opinion.

Tap. Medium black with a white head. Sweet malt nose with light sugared caramel. Light roasty sweet flavor. Finishes with a candy sweetness and herbal bitter. A bit sticky but worked well with my jambalaya.

This is one of those beers I search out. It can be hard to find in the Nashville area, but worth searching for.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2006 Muted aroma. Complex, nutty, moderately astringent, light cocoa, mild-ish. Extra smooth and frothy. Dark ruby brown. Moderately fruity at times. Medium-light sweetness. Very good - I really enjoyed it. On tap, Flying Saucer, Nashville. WLDD trip.

I nice change from other porters. This was the best one on the Yazoo flight at the Flying Saucer in Nashville. I had to order another one after the 5oz sample.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Translucent, glassy ruby/mahogany color with a lovely blanketing and = creamy khaki grayish-tan hued head. Pumpernickel, cocoa, pecans, hazelnuts and mild chocolate moderately entice the nose but leave much to the imagination. Baileys & cream flavor whisks away like said cocktail, only sitting in an ice cube inundated glass for about an hour. Principally a chocolate-rye malt display. Creamy hazelnut interpretations move it to sway more towards a Frangelico libido. Scotch and peat mildly spice near the end, but we’ve pretty much thrown in the towel on porter and rye traits and are now affectionately predisposed to the crème liquor characteristics.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2008 Draft at Flying Saucer. Faint aroma of vanilla, hazelnut, and coffee. Nice flavor of rye, chocolate, and dark roasted malt. Rye definitely comes out in the semi dry finish, with some faint notes of spice, bitter chocolate, and hops. Medium bodied with a silky mouthfeel. Nicely balanced, and I think this is Yazoo’s best beer. A great session beer that is worthy of being in a tasting lineup, as long as you like rye beers...which I do.. Linus, if you are reading this, bottle this stuff. It’s good and I’d like to share it with other ratebeerians.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A deep red color with a light tan head. A little sweeter than expected with a medium body. A great Nashville beer.
