Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a dark brown to black coloring with ruby highlights and a low profile, white, clingy head. Nose of mocha and cream, with roasted highlights. Chocolate and coffee notes, too. Flavors are bitter roast coffee forward, with creamy highlights at the end. Dry, light bodied, with a bitter, roasted aftertaste. The finish is dry, with a subtle bitter coffee and chocolate linger.

This porter is incredible! It has the nice bold feeling of a porter but not too strong. Satisfaction guaranteed for all beer drinkers. With it's IBU at 23, it has the body of an average porter but is smooth enough for anyone. "A midnight hue is complemented by chocolate and coffee aromas. With a creamy head and smooth finish, it stands apart from other porters."

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. Unlabeled sample bomber from the brewery.

A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with a 1/4 inch light brown head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a tiny center patch of surface foam. Minimal lacing.

S- Strong dark roast aroma brings lots of dark chocolate notes plus some coffee and a bit of nuttiness.

T- Bitter dark roast comes on first with a chocolaty sweet middle and some mild hop flavor in the finish.

M- Thick for a porter, actually bordering on stout territory. Medium carbonation and a full body.

O- I gotta say, I'm quite impressed by this. Porter's a style that has to be done a certain way for me to like it and these guys nailed it. Good and roasty with a mild sweetness to balance and a robust body.
