On-tap at Taco Mac Metropolis in Atlanta.

Pours black with a 1.5-finger brown head. One of the darkest porters I've seen in a while. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of smooth roasted malts and well-integrated bitter dark chocolate flavors. There's not a whole lot going on here but every bit of it is rich.

Tastes very good. Robust roasted malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by dark chocolate. Midway through the sip very light hints of citrus hop flavors enter into things before fading into a solidly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is very good. It's got a smooth thickness with grainy carbonation.

Drinkability is also very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.

Overall I was very impressed with this - one of the better-done, widely-available porters out there. Well worth a shot.
