A rich, chocolaty English Porter with a clean finish. We use the finest floor-malted Maris Otter malts from England, the same malts used for the best single-malt scotch. A portion of malted rye gives a spicy, slightly dry finish.

A - Dark brown with big brown egg shell head that maintains nicely.

S - Roasted malts, chocolate, maple syrup, brown sugar.

T - Malt forward, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, finishes with a semi bitter aftertaste.

O - Really solid porter - I enjoyed this one the most of the mixed Yazoo sixer I received from a friend in Nashville.

12 ounce bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It is very dark brown with ruddy highlights. There is an inch and a half of tan head that just sits on top and is thick as hell. It reminds me of a Guinness head.

S - The smell is full of rich chocolate and fresh roasted coffee. I even get some earthy, nutty notes.

T - The taste carries what the smell brought to the party. At first I thought is was a bit mild, but these flavors jump out at you. The is some chocolate through the middle. This beer finishes with a strong black coffee taste with its bitterness.

M - Moderate to full

O - This beer fits right in with the Sam Smith's beers. This is a great English porter. It is loaded with aroma and flavor. This beer exceeded all expectations.

Poured into a Stella Artois glass

A: Dark brown with a tan one finger head that dissipates to foam. Great lacing.

S: Chocolate, cocoa, toasty.

T: Charred chocolate with light coffee notes. Malty. Sweet, Hearty. Rye slides in on the finish.

M: Medium with medium to heavy carbonation. Frothy. Dry.

O: A solid porter. Great with a chocolate chip cookie. Nice dessert beer.
