Appearance: Pitch black, light tan head, thin collar, OK lacing.

Aroma: Medium intensity roast, touches of vanilla, dark fruit, and burnt rubber.

Flavor: Mostly roast, just hints of some black malt soy sauce. Very little vanilla.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, dissipating and refreshing for a dark beer, as it should be.

this beer is a porter, that's it, just a porter, nothing interesting to note here, this is a boring porter beer, if you want a porter, you could do a hell of a lot better

Tap from brewery. Pours dark black with white head. Aroma of vanilla and roast. Taste of vanilla and chocolate. Medium bodied. Not too shabby.

Serving type: Bottle, though you are more likely to find this on tap.
Looks: Opaque and deep dark brown with garnet highlights. An aggressive pour will yield some head.
Smell: Vanilla, some mild floral hopping, toffee, caramel, nuttiness. Has a warm roasted smell.
Taste: Butter pecan, sweet vanilla, wood, toffee, coffee notes all present here. Hops are primarily earthy, floral and citrus present but demure.
Mouthfeel: Silky with a bit of a burn on the way down.
Overall: A bit sweet for me but my spouse loved it. If you like butter pecan icecream you will love this local Alabama offering.
