KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 21, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2011 Bottle. Poured a murky dark brown with an average size light brown creamy head and had excellent lacing. The aroma was of burnt chocolate malts, a light pine hop and a leathery yeast with notes of roasted coffee and brown sugar. It tasted slightly bitter-sweet with hints of chocolate and brown sugar from the start, then finished with the flavor having a nice coffee presence at the end. The flavor left lying on the taste buds lasted an average amount of time, and was bold and flavorful.. Mouthfeel was creamy and a tad oily in texture, and medium to full in body with a flat carbonation. Overall a VERY tasty Porter, so smooth going down you just may not want to stop drinking it.

Bottle. Dark brown in color with a small beige head. Roasted coffee and chocolate in aroma, roasted malty vibes and some dark fruityness too. Feels soft and nice. Dry though. Coffee in taste, some hints of burnt wood as well. Later on dark and bitter chocolate steps up. Roasted notes with hints of licorice in finish. Pretty good.

A very good porter with a nice punch of flavor unexpected. A nice sweetness makes it easily pleasant and drinkable.
