Poured from bottle a dark brown with thin white head that receded to sides of glass. Minimal lace. Aroma was more roasted malt than coffee, but dark roast coffee noted. In the taste the coffee had a bigger role but it is a good balance of coffee to malt. The coffee does linger into the finish and aftertaste is black coffee. Enjoyed.

Nice coffee roasted malt aroma with slight sweet malt. Taste starts slight sweet malty with a nice coffee finish. Coffee bitter balances the slight malt sweetness. Full bodied but not heavy. Quite a nice Porter overall.

12 ounce bottle - $1.69 at Total Wine & More in Greensville, South Carolina. TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2016
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.
(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.

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 (8808) - 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 (514) - 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.
