Growler thanks to cruisan!!! This has got to be the best porter that I have had since the Covey Aduro Porter. poured black with a cream colored head. aroma and flavor were bursting with a nice balanced roastiness followed by some bitter baking cocoa and chocolate. the body was light-medium with a soft fizzy carbonation that smothered my tongue with flavor. Simply amazing!! They should start bottling this. Another florida brewery that is knocking it out of the water!! Marheb (6363) - MontrÃ©al, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
Une des meilleures sweet stout que j’ai bu sans aucun doute, mélasse douce et lait de coco dans un corps velouté, j’ai adoré. pari6819 (55) - Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Gorgeous color. The nose is not as pronounced as I would have hoped. It definitely has chocolate notes and lactose. The taste is a fantastic balance of coffee and chocolate. It finsishes with milky chocolate vanilla flavors. Fantastic and easily drinkable. thebsmitty (138) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Pitch black in color with some cream colored head that faded into a very thin collar. Aroma is very roasty, some dark chocolate and a hint coffee. Taste is roasted malt, and an earthiness to it too. Rich, full body and medium carbonation. dosbeerigos (24) - Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Had a "pilot" version of this beer at the grand opening of the new Funky Buddha. Thanks to the crew there for sharing with me.
Beer poured dark, looked very clean though.
My nose was broke that night so I do not have any notes on the nose.
Taste was big and bold up front with a nice sweetness lingering at the end….a nice treat! The lactose adds a different quality to the beer that is welcoming to a person that isn’t a huge fan of porters.
My favorite beer of the night from the release. I personally can not wait till this beer is on tap constantly at the Buddha. This is a prime example of how the brewers at the Buddha can convert a taster into a lover of a style that they would normally pass over.

On draft at Funky Buddha. Pours an opaque brown with a soapy white head. Nose is lactose, vanilla, chocolate, cafe con leche, earth, and hints of roast. Flavor is similar with earth, lactose, chocolate, cafe con leche and some some roast. An earthy, sweet porter- made awesome by the lactose character. Medium-bodied, finishing with lingering lactose. dimenhetfield (2554) - , Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2010
On tap at the Buddha for the grand opening. I’m really partial to porters and stouts, so this one was right up my alley. It had a nice dark color to it, with a thin white foam head. Got some roasted malts in the aroma, along with the sweetness of the milk sugar. Has a very nice mouth feel and I could definitely see this being a pretty good session beer for the nights where I want to stick with the darker beers.

Tap pour sampled outside the brewpub adjacent to the parking lot and amid lots of hip ‘too cool for school’ cigarette smokers. It poured up deep amber with infra red edges and light colored mocha head. The aroma is inviting with sort of a burnt wheat toast covered in toffee sensation while being nearby a mound of freshly ground dark roasted coffee beans. The taste is robust like the aroma with dark roasted malts running toward slight earthiness and chocolate rolled into charred malts and getting near an ashy aspect. It leaves burnt and roasted malts lingering deep into the after taste. This is full force roasty goodness. Loved it.
