(On tap) Memphis. Black, but not completely opaque, there’s a reddish hue in there, and a creamy, beige head. Malty, lightly burned aroma. Medium-bodied with lots of burned malt leaving some bitterness. Very dry finish. 280306 Tmoney99 (14982) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Draft sample at Boscos Memphis.
Poured a clear brown color with an average creamy off-white head that was mostly lasting and produced good lacing. Moderate roasted coffee malt and chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted coffee sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.
Sold drinkable brew. BeerandBlues2 (13822) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Pours jet black with a fizzy tan head. Dark chocolate malt aroma with hop hints. Hoppy roasted malt and dark chocolate flavor. Full-bodied and roasted palate. Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2003
From a sampler: Pours a dark brown (almost opaque) color with a medium beige head and decent lacing. Strong roasted coffee aroma, along with a little chocolate. Medium body, containing a nice blend of coffee, hops and chocolate flavors. The rich and somewhat bitter coffee-tasting finish is very nice, and I don't even like coffee. Good stuff. onceblind (10589) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Clear black hue with a thin and sticky light beige head. The nose has some earthy caramel and some biscuity chocolate. The flavor is much the same, soft and medium bodied. Light caramel and light biscuity tones with a very light and semi-dry chocolaty tones. Meh.

Sampled at Bosco’s Squared in Memphis. Dark brown with a bit of red. Big roasted notes and a well hopped porter. This brewery seems to like well hopped beers. Decent chocolate and coffee. Those hops make this a different take on a classic style. Nice. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2003
On tap in Nashville - Very dark brown, nearly black hue. Large light brown head that produces an excellent lace. Medium to full-bodied. Toasted malt with nutty, dark chocolate, and strong coffee hints. Hint of smoke too. Chocolate heavy sweetness well balanced with bitter undertones. Oily and soft mouthfeel. A good version of porter, similar to Fullers but aroma not as distinct or aftertaste as long. Recommended if in area. Suttree (6505) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Reddish black, sturdy tan head. Coffee aroma, coffee flavors, too. Some fruity, apple flavors, too, with a crisp, peppery hop finish. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2007
A slight dark brown almost black pour with a gooey clinging lacing. An aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. A decent hops aroma for a porter. Asweet burnt coffee flavor dominates wth a very good bitter finish. A fizzy finish and a tad thin for a porter. Overall o good beer just barely off.

Inky, but you can still see the lamp through it. A bit boozy. Medium light body. Thoroughly brewpub-neutered, this doesn’t challenge the palate at all, nor is it particularly smooth. Finishes quickly without much char or cling. A bit too sugary in the end.
