3.75/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours dark brown, almost black with small khaki head.
The aroma is dark rich malts, coffee, and burnt roastiness.
The flavor is overly roasty with flavors of burnt malt, coffee, and a light tobacco smoke.
It's got a slick mouthfeel. Goes down easily.
Overall, it's okay. Not my favorite porter, but I'd buy it if it were an affordable option.

I had this on draft in a pint glass.
L: All porters are dark, but this one tends more toward black than brown. Small, light tan head.
S: Coffee, dark malts
T: Roasted coffee. Maybe a little chocolate.
F: Creamy, and on the thicker side for porters.
O: A really nice porter. Dark, and they got a lot out of only 5% ABV.

The darker the better, I always say. That's why I was thrilled when this porter came out looking and tasting more toward the stout spectrum than the brown ale spectrum. A little watery but the taste makes up for it. Don't expect and head or lacing, you won't find it. But as a visitor to the Music City, I was thrilled to discover the local brews around here can hold their own.

On tap poured into 20 oz pint glass.

A: Rich dark body with almost nonlight escaping with a creamy khaki colored head.

S: Roasted coffee, burnt malts, dark chocolate

T: A nice roasted malts, dark coffee, rich chocolate, a light bit of spiciness.

M: Lowish carbonation slightly creamy I at first thought it was on nitro.

O: This is an impressive porter with lots of rich grainy, malty flavors with a nice coffee flavor and just a little spiciness.
