Exile 1 pours black with a small tan lacing head. There is a roasted and slight chocolate aroma. The taste is dry, has a nice roasted flavor, and some chocolate notes; the chocolate is not overpowering. Good body nice flavors. Overall it s a nice full porter with some goo flavors.

Enjoyed in a snifter.

A - Very dark inky black colour with a thin layer of light brown head.

S - Sweet chocolate, molasses, roast and lighter spice and coffee aromas.

T - Sweet milk chocolate, molasses, roast and a light spiciness form the rye. Gets very sweet as I continue to drink it.

M - Medium, almost full body. Light carbonation.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Libbey Stout/Porter glass.

A: Pours a deep and mysterious opaque black with a nice thick mocha colored head which lasts and lasts.

S:Chocolate, some rye spiciness, slight fruitiness

T: Chocolate, dark malts, roasty, spicy, slightly fruity. Not much hops flavor, no lingering bitterness.

M: Full bodied and satisfying. No burn from the carbonation, no alcohol heat.

O: Great job, guys. This is a really good beer. I will buy this again if I can find it. It works well on a winter evening.
