Pours very dark with a small head. Lots of roasting in the nose of this one that also comes through in the taste. Quite a bit of maltiness, too.

My overall favorite beer, the Exodus Porter is a great brew for even the serious beer drinker. It’s a full bodied beer that has the perfect balance of sweet and bitter. The strong palate is soothed away by the hint of chocolate malt in the aftertaste. If you like dark beer, this is what you’ve been looking for.

Pours dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Smells chocolaty. Taste is chocolate with hints of cocoa bitterness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Sweetwater Exodus Porter finishes with a touch of dark chocolate bitterness.
