Appearance: Dark brown color with a nice mocha cap that delivers some lace

Smell: Fresh brewed coffee galore

Taste: Loads of coffee flavor both up front and after the swallow; roasty malt flavors underneath

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: This is one of those coffee beers that tastes like coffee rather than a beer with coffee influences; nice job!

Recieved this bottle from a friend that visited Charleston a few weekends back. Poured from the bottle into a draft glass. Dark appearance, almost looks like a coke with a minimal frothy head. Definitely smell the coffee as well as something that almost smells like licorice. Tastes just like it smells, coffee with a hint of licorice. Very drinkable for a porter, this is one beer from Palmetto that is on the buy list next time I head down to Charleston. Cheers!

Poured this American style Porter from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a dark brown color, produced an average tan head, average retention and left some lacing on the glass. The aroma of this porter was very nice, a complex melody of freshly ground espresso beans, milk chocolate and roasted malt. Medium bodied, there was a foundation of roasted malted grain, espresso beans and milk chocolate. Semi sweet throughout, this is a very well made, strong coffee/espresso flavor throughout the session- One of the best coffee flavored beers that I have sampled thus far- Great session beer- great brew for any Porter/Coffee lover. Prost!
