Not really a porter at all.

OK but kindof odd. Dominated by chewy caramel malt flavor without anything to balance. More a brown ale than a porter and not a very good one. One dimensional.

Poured from a growler into a snifter. Thanks for bringing this back from Nashville, Brenda.

A: Dark brown, opaque. A tan half finger head that dissipates fast. Good lacing.

S: Nutty, light coffee, dark chocolate.

T: Follows nose. Sweet, nutty. Caramel malts and dark chocolate mingle well.

M: Light to medium with low carbonation. I really think this was from the transport from Nashville back home. The growler had time to get warm, cold, then warm and cold again. Brenda had it on tap at the brewery and didn't nitice the low carbonation.

O: A decent porter that drinks like a nut brown ale. Or did they put the wrong beer in the growler?

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: extremely dark brown with what seems to be a relatively mild haze. Head poured a thin layer of tan foam and didn't stick around too long. Color is quite nice, though.

Smell: lightly chocolatey with a little chocolate and a hint of toasty nuttiness. Not bad, although rather on the mild side.

Taste: chocolatey with lots of toffee character. A bit on the sweet side, but generally a nice porter.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a nice carbonation and creaminess. Not bad.

Overall: this is a decent porter, although verging on a bit too sweet for my taste (at least when it comes to brown porters).
