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

12 oz bottle poured into a frosted pint glass. Very little aroma that I could descern, but then they were smoking in the Hair of the Dog. Chocolate and malt flavours with an excellent mouth.

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.

Growler courtesy of lithy. Pours dark brown with a ruby red tint and a lasting tan head. Smells of some rye, sweet, earthy, a fruity hint, roasty, some molasses touches. Tastes of rye, nutty, spicy, some metallic touches, light citrus. Full bodied with a bite on the finish. Enjoyable!

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.

Dark brown pour. Slight tannish head that persists. Roast malts and slight fruity aroma. Toasty, bready flavor, with some chocolate and coffee. Medium body and pretty dry. Nice beer.

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.
