Poured from a growler I picked up in Greenwood, SC at Corley's Market. Pours an almost jet black with ruby highlights, nice rocky tannish frothy head with lacing ringing the glass after every sip. Nice roasty aroma with a faint spicy hop background. Taste is medium bodied with a silky smooth finish from the oats. A little subdued for a porter in my opinion, but nice maltiness with hints of chocolate and caramel, some hops detectable on the back end. Silky smooth and easy to drink. I think I will have another.

I am a huge fan of porters and this brew is no exception. The appearance is dark dark brown...you would think its black until you hold it to light. The head is a off white...almost tan colored. Smell is just what you expect of a porter, kind of a caramel, chocolate, creamy smell with a hint of bitterness. Taste is just as it smells. Up front you get a nice milk like taste with chocolate undertones with a touch of bitterness at the finish. Very good brew indeed!

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a very dark brown, almost black, coloring, with chestnut highlights around the edges, and a wispy, thin, clingy, off-white head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, toffee, and hazelnut, with roasted characteristics to round out the sweet edges. Flavors are chocolate forward, both milk and bittersweet, with a bolt of bitter roasted coffee, crème highlights, and hints of roast throughout. Very balanced on the palate. A dry, light body keeps the drinkability up. The aftertaste is more of the bittersweet chocolate, and the beer has a smooth, dry finish. Solid porter.
