Served on tap into a pint glass at Sesame Burger Park Circle. Re-reviewed after having it a few more times.
A: Black as night with a 1.5 finger tan head that quickly dissipates to a thin tan ring around the glass. Moderate lacing.
S: All malts as it should be. Malts smell deeply roasted almost burnt.
T: Not as roasted as the nose or appearance suggests. Medium roasted malts with a barely detectable hop presence. The smell of the roast on the malts suggests a dark roasted flavor, but the roasted flavor is actually on the lighter side and unimposing.
M: Very light and surprisingly smooth for a porter. High drinkability.
O: Smoothness and relative lightness (for the style) lends itself to being a porter that can be enjoyed in warmer weather. The best "all season" porter I have tried. If I decide a want a dark beer in the warmer months (which is about 3/4 of the year in Charleston) this fits the bill. Come colder weather, I will likely reach for something heavier. Don't write this one off if you see it on tap in the middle of summer; it will surprise you.

Pint glass filled from 15 minute old growler fill.
Pours clear, dark red-brown; near opaque with a decent sized but weak beige head.
Lots of sweet caramel malts in the nose but the flavor is dominated by darker roasted malts. Excellent and balanced aftertaste with some coffee and a hint of dark chocolate.
Feel: medium body and carbonation.

Pours a black color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of hop, oatmeal, and hint of yeast. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of hop, oatmeal, hint of yeast, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, feel, and blend.
