On tap at Jackie O’s Brewpub & Public House in downtown Athens.
Essentially black and opaque body with reddish-brown edges and an excellent tan head. Patterned lacing is left sticking to the glass.
Aroma: a bit vegetative; the ale's weak spot.
Flavor: a bit vegetative but better than the aroma suggests, with a moderate-high level (for style) of dark roasted grains and some spicy hops. Moderate bitterness for style.
Feel: full body; very smooth with medium-light carbonation.

A most excellent porter poured from the growler.
This fine brew pours a deep brown with thin light tan head and light lacing. Nose of coffee,
dark chocolate, and rich caramel. Flavors are spot on with coffee and cocoa up front and on
the back. Deep roasted grains on the aftertaste and a mild hop bitterness that plays well with
a butterscotch like flavor. A silky smooth mouthfeel, light on the carbonation, and highly
quaffable, this is a stout drinkers porter. Very nice indeed.

I had this on-tap during the anniversary celebration.

Appearance: The beer pours a dark brown, almost black color with a layer of off white head. The head fades to a ring around the pour.

Smell: Roasted malt and some sweet dark chocolate. Mild dark fruit notes in the background.

Taste: Roasty and smooth with dark chocolate, burnt malt, and dark fruit notes joining the mix. The finish is bitter and roasty.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with foamy carbonation and a dry finish.

OVerall: This is a nice chocolate porter. Just the right amount of sweetness.

Another one I've only recently had a chance to try thanks to Bobby (and Amy) & their trip to Jackie O's; at the Attic recently.

Porter brown, it's what one should expect as far as color. There's a nice light brown head with some creaminess to it that holds itself well. Lacing is patchy and left in good quantity.
This is a rich beer, strongly malty but, in its strength, remaining a porter rather than pushing itself to stout levels. Malts are roasty with plenty of caramel and toffee sweetness that balances the roast and the balancing hops bitterness well. There's a nice touch of nuttiness, too, and a bit of cocoa. This is a delicious, well-rounded, balanced brew with plenty of flavor and, not being a massive beer, tremendously drinkable.
The body is medium, a nice creamy smoothness underlying while remaining soft enough with a light enough carbonation not to be overfilling.

dark brown, small tan colored head, not a lot of lace, pretty clear
Caramel and chocolate predominantly, with a touch of roasted coffee and an ever so slight hoppy back.

Very nice, lots of caramel and roasted malts, with a nice hoppy back. Dry finish. Lots of sugar, very good. smooth, a very good feeling porter. Not too thick, just about right to be totally sessionable. I thought the decent carbonation played a good roll here

Served on tap into a shaker glass at Jackie O's

A- Poured a very dark brown, almost black. Nice creamy head that left lots of chunky lace

S- Big aroma of chocolate, hazelnut, and vanilla

T- Very big rich chocolate notes, hazelnut, caramel, and vanilla flavors. A very sweet and rich tasting porter, some roasty notes, but more on the sweet side. The sweetness made this more of a sipper than the usual porter.

M- Fairly creamy, softer mouthfeel, with some good carbonation

O- A really unique tasting porter. I really liked Jackie O's take on this porter.
