The porter pours dark black coffee in color with a decent tan head on top. The aroma is smooth coffee, with light bitter and even lighter sweet malt notes. The flavors of roasted malts, coffee dominant smooth, and chocolate come through nicely on a medium body. Drake (13739) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2011

Pours near black with a good mocha head with moderate retention and a nice cap as it falls. The nose is quite nice with a load of roasted malt as well as a nice chocolate presence. A few hops in the background add a nice dose of complexity. The taste is pretty roasty with a nice chocolate presence to back it up. Good balance between sweetness and roast in the feel. Drinks quite well and is another solid hit out of Athens.

This poured a dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of lighlt roasted mlats, some sweeter chocolate and light hops. Flavor was much the same, a very mild drinkable porter, but unfortunately mild sometimes means bland. Moggman (235) - Columbus, USA - SEP 14, 2010
