look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: dark, deep auburn highlights, a bit thin, not a big head or lace

Smell: honey! Sweet, a hint of spice. strong

Taste: subtly wondrous! A wave of flavor rolls over the tongue.

Mouthfeel: A tiny bit too much carbonation, goes down easily without a heavy sitting afterwards.

Overall: A solid satisfaction.

Blurb on bottle: Dark, full-bodied, and rich in flavor, Green Man Porter is wonderfully easy to drink. It offers a creamy, smooth mouthfeel and finishes with distinctive chocolate notes. This traditionally crafted, award-winning British-style Porter, like a true rock star, enjoys a legendary following.

grabbed a couple of bottles of this on a recent trek to Knoxville.

Nice dk brown coloring, with an off white head, wh8ich did not retain much.

liking the aroma here, chocolate, coffee, faintly roasted malt.

Taste is pretty good, not too harsh at all. Coffee comes through more than the chocolate.

Mouth is between medium and full.

Knew nothing about this beer or brewery when I picked it up. A good one, I'll be looking for more of their offerings when back down south
