Served as part of a flight at Epcot.
Dark brown to black with very light tan head that dissipated quickly.
Smell is charred malt, chocolate and coffee.
Taste follows smell with lots of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolates and darkly roasted malts. Charred flavor lingers on the palate. Mild bitterness.
Mouthfeel is somewhat watery but very drinkable. Low carbonation.
Overall this was very good. A little light in the feel but not too bad.
Serving type: on-tap

Lately I've been so lucky to be trying some really good beer - this local brew from Orlando was another pleasant surprise that keeps my lucky streak going.
The beer pours practically black out of the bottle with a light hint of caramel. No head but the lacing sticks all the way down. The smell of the porter blew me away - there was a strong odor of chocolate with hints of cinnamon and what I would call "sweet malt." The beer feels thick and the carbonation was just about right - a little aftertaste though. The taste was just slightly disappointing - it reminded me a bit of drinking a pale ale (which I've learned I'm not too big of a fan) but those scents of "sweet malt" and cinnamon came through. I gave it an overall low score since the aftertaste stuck in my mouth way longer than I would have liked. Otherwise, it's a great beer and it's nice to know someone is brewing good, local beer.

The Lost Spring Break 2012 Beer Reviews, chapter two:
Black body,topped by a level medium tan had.
Aroma is deep roasted coffee. Inviting and assertive.
Taste is also coffee, but it seems a weaker brew on he tongue than the nose. Definite watery quality, which dilutes the finish. No aftertaste.
Wimpy mouthfeel for a porter. Nothing to chew on.
An ok beginning but disappointing overall.
