ChainGangGuy (4862) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Bottled On: "100412"

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with a medium-small, light beige head.

Smell: A nose of coffee-hinted roast, oats, bakers chocolate aaanndd, well thats it. Not alot going on here, aromawise.

Taste: Roasted malts, some nutty oak flakes, and the bakers chocolate all carrying over from the aroma. Fairly light on the sweetness. Low dark fruitiness. Minor hop character and imparted bitterness. Semi-dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Its certainly not the creaminess thing on the block.

Overall: A little bland, a little ho-hum. Its certainly not Mother Earths best effort to date.

bottle. almost opaque dark brown with a medium, creamy,beige head. toasty, milk chocolate aroma with no bitterness or hops. a medium bodied porter with a creamy mouthfeel from flaked oats. moderately sweet with hardy any unfitting bitter hops and a bit of caramel. real nice and easy drinking porter. solid. a nice go-to, sessionable, everyday porter appropriate for all occasions.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2013 12oz bottle. Poured into pint glass brownish black color, very little off-white head. Aroma of coffee and smokey malt. Taste adds some light chocolate milk. Lighter then expected but smooth. Not bad.

Capa (2957) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Dark with a medium head. Aroma was light chocolate, a bit of toasted malts, caramel, and light coffee. Smooth body. Flavor was similar to the aroma with a slight metallic finish that threw me off a bit. Good beer.

Draught. Poured a very dark brown with a very small head to it. Good roasting to this with some other underlying malty tones. Nice and smooth drink.

jhliesen (831) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle--nice, black color with a small, fizzy, black head. The aroma was a bit shy, but roast malts appeared about halfway through the beer. The flavor was a bit coy with oats, coffee and some chocolate. Nice, understated style, but very likeable. Bruisin Ales.

Had this one on-tap at City Bev in town. The pour created a massive tan head on top that lingered for most of the session. The frothy cap produced aromas of roasted malt, chocolate powder, and a slightly chicory fade on the finish. Nice toasty nose. The mouth on this one is a bit thin and lacking in carbonation. A little too slick for me, but that could be the fault of the tap, not the beer itself. The flavors are as good as anticipated. Big roasty notes that arent charring or unpleasant in any way. Mild chocolate flavors add a touch of sweetness that prevents this beer from becoming too woodsy and burnt. Good balance of flavors going on. There is a slight metallic finish, but it fleets away quickly. This was good, but Id love to revisit this is in bottle form to see how the mouth is remedied, if at all. This keeps reminding me why ME is one of my fave NC breweries.

Cybercat (5342) - Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Comes out of the growler a rich, warm sable that lets daylight in only at the very bottom and has a very thick, fluffy and persistent tan head. Aroma has notes of roast malt, coffee and licorice. Flavor has a malty core and notes of chocolate, coffee and licorice with a dusty hint of oatmeal. Smooth texture does not have very robust body, but fizz level is good. Welcome to the neighborhood!
