12 oz 2013 bottle into a Belgian snifter.

Pours an effervescent dark brown, looking black in the glass, with a huge head. Good retention but limited lacing.

S: Dark roasted grains, a little booze and hints of coffee and toffee. Seems a bit too sweet and, perhaps, contaminated.

Taste: largely follows the nose, but better, being less boozy and having more smoke and char, and a stronger dark roasted grain component.

Feel: Medium bodied; medium+ carbonation; some warming

O: disappointing

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12 oz bottle into snifter
Bottled date: 12/05/13

A - opaque black with thin beige head. Dissipates rather quickly with minimal lacing
S- smells of roasted malt, almost burnt, with a slight coffee ground aroma. A bit of dark chocolate as well
T - you get the coffee grounds right way with more of the burntness. The roasted malt is in there good as well. Not getting much hop except for a tad bit bitterness on the back end.
M - medium-weighted with a sort of creamy feel. Dry finish
O - not a bad brew. Reminds me an awful lot of Tin Roof's Parade Ground Porter.

Bottles 11/11/14

Pours an effervescent ebony with crazy amounts of head, fairly vigorous pour... Stays effervescent, average at best head retention & lacing

S: Coffee, carob, a little booze & that's all folks

T: Follows the nose, smokeyness as well along with dryness up front, a little caramel as well. Carob, some woody hops & dark chocolate as this warms. Finishes with caramel, a hint of raisin, dryness, roasty grain & dryness, plus some taffy & roastyness

MF: Medium/heavy bodied, medium carbonation, warming

Very drinkable for the style, not upper rung, but well worth a go. Got better as it warmed...

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of roasted malts, coffee. Taste is the same, only with considerable bitterness, some hops, slight bit of alcohol as well. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Lazy Magnolia Black Creek has a thin, beige head, and an extremely dark-brown, almost black appearance, with almost no lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, dark-roasted barley malt, coffee hints, chocolate hints, and brown bread crust. Taste is of sweetness, char, dark malt, some cherry, vegetable, cream, and a low hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy, and Lazy Magnolia Black Creek finishes semi-dry, powdery, easy drinking, and not the least bit alcohilic. Overall, this is an outstanding beer!
