12 ounce bottle - $1.69 at Total Wine & More in Greensville, South Carolina.
Appearance: Pours a very dark but clear brown body capped with a tan-hued head.
Smell: Restrained coffee-hinting roastiness with a lil’ darkened grain and a lil’ dark chocolate.
Taste: A gentle malty roastiness with a taste of sweetened coffee and chocolate for a slight mocha kick. Small hint of dark fruitiness. Minimal hop character and balancing bitterness. Semi-dry finish, still hinting of roasty coffee.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Not bad, just a fine, simple porter. TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2016
(Bottle). Aroma of burnt coffee with minimal head. The flavor is over-roasted espresso dominating the Porter. Decent palate.

Bottle @ home. Black in color with a khaki head. There’s a nice bit of roasty coffee and plenty of dark chocolate. A touch of nuts and some pepper. Good sweetness of hazelnut and a touch of toffee. Decent amount of coffee, though not as much as is present on the aroma. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side but otherwise not too shabby. Maverick34 (3248) - New York, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Deep brown pour from bottle in Charleston. Mocha and espresso aroma. Relatively light bodied with some chew. Pretty good. Garbageman (487) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - AUG 10, 2015
From tap. Pours a deep brown with tan head. Aroma was all nutty coffee. Taste followed with a nutty coffee richness. A little caramel and chocolate. Very surprised with this one.

Bottle. This is intensely coffee flavored and really deeply roasted. Do not drink if you want to fall asleep. nimbleprop (8466) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2015
On tap at the brewery, pours a murky, deep brown with some fluffy, off white head. Solid nose, nutty, toast, molasses, inviting coffee, a little caramel, a little mocha. Flavor has brown sugar and molasses, malt, toast, nutty coffee grounds, dark chocolate. Full, dry finish. Solid. eRock_2013 (475) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Another straitforward, unsophisticated, but successful brew from Palmetto. Pours a ruby brown, classic porter appearance. A pleasant light-bodied porter, heavy on the roasted coffee on the nose and on the palate. Aroma is mostly espresso with some sweet caramel malt. Taste is coffee with caramel creamer, not much complexity. A nice sweet espresso finish. No hoppiness worthy of note. Light, refreshing, yet flavorful.

Bottle at Porch Nite thanks to Brisben. Pours dark brown to black with a thin tan head. Aroma is dark roasted coffee and some roast. Not much maltiness. Flavor follows with lots of coffee. Nice beer. woodychevy (874) - - DEC 30, 2014
Part of local flight at Charleston tap house. Pleasantly suprised for Palmetto. Strikes the right porter notes. Bit heavy handed with the coffee (but it is, espresso porter, after all) and somewhat thin mouthfeel (but it is Charleston, after all) but otherwise no complaints. Drinkable if not especially memorable.
