3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Originally sampled at the brewery, but I was pleasantly surprised to find this available on draft at the Belcourt Theater. Great clear chestnut body with red highlights and good light tan sustainable head. Light coffee and toasted malt aroma. Biscuit, toasty, nutty, earthy flavors. Very good at first, but didnt hold up as I drank more of it. Pretty good though.

Black pour with hints of red, creamy tan head and lace. Burnt coffee on the nose mostly. Toasted malt, chocoffee flavor with caramel. A light/medium bitter and a hint of semi sweet at the end. A tad fizzy and thin. A more than solid offering.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
had this off draft from a tasting recently. the appearance is definitely porter. it’s aroma is very dark and mysterious, a little bit of chocolate and hints of coffee, but also more caramel and roasted malt flavors shining through. I paired this with a smoked brat, and the two couldn’t have been more harmonious unless it was dipped in dark chocolate. The rye, while noticed, did not add nor detract too much from the overall flavor of the beer. I personally think this is my favorite brew by Linus and crew.

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 Iíve enjoyed, and Iím 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.
