tap at flying saucer in Memphis. Deep brown witha small off-white fizzy head. lactic and nutty nose-old tap line or old keg? a bit of choclate in the nose as well(baking). flavors are sweet, husky and nutty. nothing really special here but definately pretty tasty chocolate based porter. long lactic and chocolate finish. simple and to the point.

arminjewell (8460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2011
Pours hazy brownish at DLD, thanks! Aroma has notes of rue spice, chocolate, some roast and coffee. Bitter roast and spice from rye component to a smooth slightly dry finish.

yackery (158) - California, USA - FEB 26, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2011 Nitro tap at Yazoo Brewery in big-mouth pint glass. This is a very, very dark beer with no head to report. The odor and taste are both of chickory with alcohol and lively carbonation. That’s all there is to it.

Poured black with a tan head that has a thin layer lasting. Aroma of coffee and chocolate malts with a faint hint of rye as it warms. The flavor found toasted malts and chocolate. Full body with a malty aftertaste

12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown with a small faded tan head. Aroma and taste: mild roasted malts, chocolate, rye, fruity notes. Medium-ish body. Overall a solid Porter.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 20, 2010
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 (1394) - 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 (2668) - 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.
