Bottle. Opaque black pour with a big creamy tan head. Aroma is faint, roasted, chocolate and coffee come through. Big flavor, more chocolate and coffee leaves a nice taste in the mouth. An exceptional porter. Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - APR 11, 2012
Top notch. The nose is coffee, chocolate, and an intense maltiness. The beer is deep brown bordering on black with a small tan head. The taste is the same as the aroma chocolate with coffee. Delicious. The body is thick with a smooth silkiness. Great. TheJackalope (30) - Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2012
Deep malts and smooth finish mark this Porter as a true epic of brews. Good gravity but not overpowering, great with curried dishes, as those deep malts melt the spices from your palette. This is the most highly celebrated, and decorated brew in Sweetwaters arsenal for a reason. Don’t pass this one up! jackfrost9p (338) - California, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Loved this porter. Bottle. Notes of coffee, cocoa, molasses and some dark fruits. Nice malt/hop balance.

A very robust and roasty porter. Huge coffee accents and rich flavor that follows through. This is a hefty beer and it’s tough to drink more than one or two at a time. This is a porter you can drink with a meal. theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Pours black, medium head that fades quickly. Smells like malt and roasted peanuts. The hops are definately in the background here. Goes down smooth and refreshing. ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Bonus bottle from goldtwins.
Pours Coca Cola colored with a creamy tan head. Burnt Chocolate aroma. Flavors of chocolate and coffee and even some dark fruits. Awesome mouthfeel just this side of thick (for a porter). Smooth hop bitterness lies just below the surface. This is an outstanding porter! DarkSong (379) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2012
12 oz bottle.It pours a dark brown or black with a small quickly fading light tan head. It has a roasted aroma and smells of coffee & chocolate. It has a wonderful complex flavor and tastes of chocolate, smoke, coffee, leather and tobacco. I love this beer and will probably buy it if I see it available again.
