4.3/5 rDev +19.1%
Appearance: Pours a dark coffee color with no real head (because of the pour) and a ring of foam around the top edge of the beer.
Smell: Sweet chocolate and coffee- rather enticing.
Taste: begins with a slight hop spice and finishing with sweet chocolate and bitter coffee- everything a porter should be.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with balanced carbonation and a sticky finish.
Overall: An excellent porter- this has everything a great porter should blended masterfully.

Pours a dark brown/almost black with reddish tints when held to the light. Nice creamy head, slow fade and nice lacing.
The aroma is a good balance of dark chocolate, some rosted coffee, and sweet toffee.
The flavor follows the nose with good coffee notes, chocolate and toffee. Nice coffee bitter finish. Great balance.
A little thin, but pretty close to what a porter should be.
Nice, easy drinking porter.

A: very dark brown body with a half finger head.
S: full nose with mostly smokey aromas with mild chocolate and burnt toast notes.
T: very smokey with a sweetness provided by the toffee and chocolate notes.
M: fuller bodied than I expected, moderate carbonation. Moist finish.
Overall: I like when porters have this mouthfeel and don't seem watered down. The best of the 4 beers I tried from this brewery.

Arrives very dark brown with a small light tan head. Scattered lace remains after the head drops to a ring.
Smell is malt, baking chocolate, wet cardboard and a hint of hops.
Taste is dark/baking chocolate, malt, cardboard and a smoke note. Pretty good balance.
Medium-full body, lightish effervescence, nice smoky/chocolate aftertaste. Drying but only faintly warming. A solid brew drunk in Pensacola.
