This was from a rebottled grower pour from strykzone. Poured very dark brown, just a little short of black, with small but thick tan head and light lacing. Nose of roasted malts with aromas of coffee, and ripe fruit. Medium mouthfeel, but very smooth and slick on the palate. Flavor is smoky, with coffee and chocolate. A very nice drinkable porter that I was thankful to get to try. Thanks strykzone!

I was not able to get an ABV when I added this beer. I tried it at The Augusta Bottoms Beer Festival. I tried to contact the Brewpub but all I could get was their answering machine. This is very dark opaque almost black porter with a thick tan head and a thin ring of lace. It has a strong roasty aroma. The taste is roasty and sweet with some strong caramel flavors. It is oblivious that they use molasses. It rounds off the bitterness and makes for a sweeter beer. Mouthfeel is medium with just slight carbonation.

A - Poured an opaque, deep black color with a thick, long-lasting, light brown head that left behind thin rings of lace.

S - This one had a rich roasted malt aroma. Nice notes of chocolate and molasses.

T - Good chocolate and cocoa flavors with a great roasted malt backbone. There is just a touch of bitterness.

M - It was soft and smooth with a dry finish. A medium-bodied beer.

D - This is a great porter. One of the finest that i've had from a local brewpub.

Drew comes up with a tasty combo beer treat. Is it a stout, or a porter? YES!

Came out a black mass of gooey goodness in the pint shaker, thick and creamy tan head showing the sips on the way down.

Light chocolate malt in the aroma, with a hint of deep roasted coffee hiding in the wings. Quaff has all of these, and then adds in the porter sour ale tinge, along with a snap of powered biscuit mixed with dark fruits. The oatmeal flakes smooth this one out like a newborn baby's ass. Sweet start with the molasses, but the 35 IBUs kick in to balance it out nicely.

A - Pours very dark with very little head formation. Almost looks like flat pepsi.

S - Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and some smokiness.

T - Rosted malt flavors are the most obvious, but there are some other things going on here. Coffee is also present but it along with the chocolate seems somewhat muted. There is some nice hop bitterness in the finish to round things out.

M - Nice and creamy much more like a stout.

D - Fairly drinkable but would be better if the flavors were more pronounced.
