4.23/5 rDev +10.7%
A-Pours very dark, almost black with a thin tan head that dissipates immediately.
S-Some chocolate, roasted malt, and hint of dark fruits
T-Dark fruits along with a hint of chocolate and coffee, and a touch of roasted malt
M-Syrupy and somewhat thin
D-One could drink this all day long, no problem. A true session beer.
Overall, this beer was great. It was unlike any other porter I've had before because it seemed much more dark fruit forward than roasted. It was semi-sweet, but no where near too sweet. I'm glad I tried this while in Nashville.

A very dark brown in color with a creamy tan head. Aromas of light cocoa. Taste begins with a bit of coffee, and some chocolate. Next was some sweet grain, and a hint of hops in the finish. Mouthfeel is good. Overall a quite good porter! The spiciness of he rye works well here.

A buddy brought a variety pack back from a trip to Nashville. The beer pours a nice color which was slightly less dark than Guinness, with a tan head. The rye was indeed sly - the beer wasn't as astringent as I had anticipated. While not as bitter as I would expect from a porter, I found it quite drinkable, and wouldn't hesitate to purchase it if I found it in my part of the country.

From a bottle that was bottled Mar 7 2012 and tasted Nov 2 2012
Pitch black with minimal lacing.
Heavy smell of carmel sweetness.
Taste is more like an ESB than a Porter. It is lacking a dry black malt character.
Reminds me of a Guiness Extra Stout. No real flaws but not what I look for in a Porter.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Minimal head that quickly dissipates. When it does, it appears exactly like a flat diet Coke would.
Smells of peppery chocolate with a slight whiff of biscuit. Nose is fairly light.
Medium viscosity with a slight bit of over carbonation prevailing.
To be honest, I expected a little more out of the taste. Has a burnt roast feel to it with a somewhat flat finish, even for a Porter. The rye does shine through which is it's one lone saving grace.

A medium sized light brown head that settles into a decent lacing above a clear dark reddish amber colored beer.
Dark roasted caramel to chocolate malt aroma with a bit of dark fruits sneaking in there.
The taste is very similar to the aroma deep dark roasted caramel to chocolates with a bit of those dark fruits sneaking in there.
A roasted dry aftertaste with a bit of the dark malts hanging around on this medium bodied porter.
A pretty good tasting beer, I could use a few of these on a chilly autumn night.

Poured this beer into a pint glass. It's a chocolate brown with a very thin head that disappeared quickly. There was a little bit of lacing on the glass.
The beer smelled like a porter should, a little coppery but mostly chocolate and toffee.
A very clean malt taste. Not too sweet. The hop balance was pretty even.
Somewhat light in the mouthfeel for a porter but easy to drink.
Overall, I liked it as a session beer. Was somewhat let down because the Yazoo Sue is an incredibly rich smoked porter, very bold with lots of body and flavor. I was hoping this would be similar but it was toned down. Still, I liked it, there aren't too many porters widely available in the middle of Tennessee, will drink it again.
