On tap

Pours a pitch black color with a creamy off-white head that retains long after the pour, leaving some nice lacing behind. Smells of fresh espresso coffee, chocolate & dark malts. Fresh espresso flavor dominates up front, with some silly chocolate notes, slightly charred malt, dry coffee & chocolate finish. Medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and finish. Espresso forward stout that drinks very fresh

I love me some dark beers and porters. I had heard good things about it, so I went in with high expectations. It was a solid beer overall. Glad I had it on nitro. Doesn't taste like coffee, but has coffee aromatics.

The look is inviting, the smell is desirable, the taste is spot on, the feel is not heavy as expected. Overall a nice beer.Bought at the store, drank at the ballgame. Will drink it again.

This is a coffee overload with deep roasted flavor and a light espresso bean sweetness. It's not overly complex and a bit thin but certainly the best I've had from Palmetto.

I do love porters but his one seems to fall short for me which is sad because I'm from the Palmetto state. I get almost nothing for smell but the taste comes through. Typical coffee and chocolate flavors but nothing about it seems to stand out.

Pours a hazy, deep brown, exhibiting a garnet tinge & highlights. The pour produces a thin finger of shortlived, tan head that leaves no lace. Aroma is coffee backed by vanilla & sweet cream, malty roast with a hint of dark chocolate. Taste is heavy to dark malty roast & coffee in front unsweetened cocoa, molasses & caramel, finishing very peppery & dry. Aftertaste is lightly bitter, deep roast, burnt coffee, cocoa & wood. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation, sandpaper prickly & dry.

What's up with the pepper! Didn't expect it based on the bar's write up... But if you're ok with a spicy / peppery porter, then you will love this one.
