Bottle: Pours a mostly opaque dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing froth of beige head. Has a lightly sweet toasty dark caramel and milk chocolate nose with some rye bready notes and spruce character. Starts with good lightly sweet chewy dark maltiness and nice rye complex with an earthy hop bitterness toward a btitersweet dark chocolaty finish. An enjoyable and complex, yet quite drinkable porter.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours nearly black with a thin beige head. Aroma is lots of dark chocolate, some coffee, bread, caramel, fruity esters. Flavor is more subtle: milk chocolate, spice, bread, caramel. Hops come on in the finish. Palate is creamy. Very enjoyable porter. The rye adds a nice touch.

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 7, 2010
This poured a black color with a moderate beige head, nice. The aroma contains a lot of milk chocolate, some coffee, and a hint of dark fruits. The flavor is pretty much the same. The finish is on the sweet side. Maybe a hint of rye flavor in the there. I was tasting something I couldnt put my finger on. Overall a nice porter.

Bottle courtesy of Couchsurfers Nathan, Feyza and Laura, thanks! Pours clear maroon with small beige head that quickly settles to an edge. Aroma of red grapes,, toast. Taste has prunes and other dark fruits, slight bitter edge. Overall very tasty.

MmmcKay (1051) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2010
From bottle. I’ve had this beer numerous times before. Surprised that I’ve never rated it. Pours dark brown with a decent enough head. The appropriate amount of carbonation. Nose is very typical porter with a bit of rye and in general malt. A little light but not thin. Good enough porter. I want just a little bit more here.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2010 On draught at Broadway Brewhouse in Nashville. This beer pours a dark brown color with a medium thin tan head that dissipates steadily. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate malt and mildly spiced hops. Medium, dry body with flavors of bittersweet chocolate, malt and bready rye spices. The finish is chocolatey with a short malty aftertaste. Above average brew overall.

mixmasterob (881) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Picked up a half gallon of this stuff on my way through Murfreesboro, TN. Made it home, to my surprise it still had decent carbonation. Dark brown almost black pour. Aroma was some roasted malts, chocolate and some earthiness. Lots of roasty flavors up front, coffee like bitterness and some dark chocolate. Mouthfeel was somewhat creamy, super smooth. I am super glad I picked some up, a very fine Tennessee porter, one of the best I have tried.

I don’t drink loads is porter. This one seems a little thin but has a nice flavor. Seems like a hint of wood and cherry.

MeadMe (1284) - Riverview, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2010
A: Pours a nice dark black, nice tan head with pretty good retention. A bit of spotty lace. S: Very nice roasted malts, earthy chocolates, and coffee. T: Nice and deep tasting. The malts are aggressively rosted. The chocolate is bold and dark. Coffee notes are there with some twangy dark fruit. Touches of caramel and nuts with a dash of the spicy rye. M: On the lighter side of medium, medium carbonation, could be a bit more lively.
