Good porter. Pours a very dark brown almost black with a quick forming head. Good lacing. Good taste/ not too smoky. I’m not one for the porters that taste like they’ve been a barrel for ages. This one is good.
On tap. Quick note.....all the 2011 and earlier ratings of this that mention thin bodied be aware this is a different beer. Heavier malt bill after the law changed in Mississippi, which helped it for the better. Pours dark ruby almost black with a one finger meringue head. Caramel nose, good body, light bitterness other than from the roast. Toffee and chocolate candy. One of the better this brewery makes. Cybercat (5737) - Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Comes out of the tap a dark chocolate brown with a fairly thick tan head. Aroma has roast malt, coffee and caramel notes. Strong flavor has malty, chocolaty, roast coffee, and subtle caramel notes. Firm body is thicker than the average porter. Jamesthebrit (421) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2013
S: Very faint.... maple. Tiny bit coffee but barely anything.
A: Looks ok I guess. Dark brown. Little head. Little retention.
T: Like the smell very faint. A bit of coffee. Dry. A hint of spice. A hint of malty candyness or so. Have to work hard to get much of anything.
M: Very dry. Dull bitter finish. Light
Overall this is an ok beer. Little is wrong but little is right. Almost like drinking a water. Steverus0 (263) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - JAN 22, 2013
A wonderful and full bodies porter. What this one lacks in depth it makes up in being a near ideal specimen of what makes a tasty porter great for the winter months

We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. We are always ecstatic to try a new Lazy Magnolia beer; we like to root for the home team. I enjoyed this new stout. Rob, confessed that it was "too stout" for him. Strykzone (7300) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Dark brown with deep red. Chocolate and roast aromas. A thin feel. Powdery malts with coffee flavors. Ok atbest. SSSteve (4006) - - JAN 4, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 growler. near black with a large, foamy, tan head. dark fruity roasted aroma minus chocolate. flavor is nutty, oddly nutty, with floral hops that are quite strong considering the color of this, but in no way bitter. the roastiness just doesn’t come through. i would have called it a brown ale with lots of english EKGs with my eyes closed. light bodied. its a nice beer, i kind of like the fresh floral notes. i possibly get a little basement dust sometimes.

Excellent porter. Thick chocolaty head with hints of caramel, chocolate and toffee in the aroma. Very well balanced taste. A big winner from Lazy Magnolia. ben4321 (6391) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Location: Draft at Closed For Business, 12/8/12
Aroma: this one has a nose of chocolate malts, light caramel,and some light nutty notes
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color, with a small tan head, and minimal lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly malty, pretty similar to the nose, with a light bitterness to it
Palate: It has a medium body, with a fairly soft carbonation, and a slightly dry finish
First Mississippi rating! Jealous Kramer? I know you are, as I ticked another state. Only 8 more to go, watch out Dakotas, I’m coming for you (or most likely not). Anyway, this beer is fine, average, and not memorable.
I wasn’t all that impressed, but its fine.
