Old Review

Got this is a sixer from Green's off Ponce in Atlanta. Poured into a pint.

A: Came out a deep brown with ruby highlights, almost black. Didn't get a huge head, but still a good looking pint.

S: Deeply roasted malt, caramel, vanilla, lactose, and a little hint of fruit.

T: Once again heavily roasted malt, a touch of caramel, nuts, and coffee.

M: A good amount of carbonation and a bit light for the style. Somewhat creamy, but doesn't coat the mouth.

D: Because it feels so light, it is very drinkable.

Served In: Pint Glass

Deep tar brown, not completely opaque though, some muddled dark ruby crimson is cloaked within when put up to a bright enough light. Like the sun. That worked. Tan cocoa cap of light medium stature sits with a smooth creamyness. Fades down to a firm collar and a light broken mist. Thin and minimal stringy lace sticks.

Aroma has a nice dry dark chocolate tone. Partially roasty. Sminting of oat flakes and barley sweetness. Light flat coffee bitterness. A smearing of molasses tang emerges shortly after sitting taking away from the intial chocolate.

Taste is smooth with well balanced tang, roast, and bitter all rolled in along the way. Darkly sweet and roastifyingly tangy with coffee bitterness, chocolate, and oats. Some briskly brief burnt black malts bring some darker flavors of char, also, baked molasses cookies seep in across the middle fading into the finish as it drys off leaving a good amount of coffee bitterness and roasty dryness.

Solid medium body with a creamy smooth interior, yet keeps its roasty, tangy character on top. Pretty solid porter, starts swiftly, middles out strongly and finishes with a good porter character. Quite the drinker too. Goes down with convincing ease.

12oz bottle that made a pop sound like a .22 when I cracked the cap. TONS of foam. It took well over 10 minutes to pour the 12oz bottle into a glass. Medium black colored brew with a deep brown foamy head that settles slowly. The walls of the glass at coated in a thick layer of sticky lacing. Roasty malt and chocolate malt are the most upfront aromas. Touch of burnt malt bitterness. Hint of caramel in there too. VERY carbonated. Too much carbonation that fizzes the crap outta your tongue. The carbonation makes getting the flavors pretty hard. Chocolate and roasted malt make up the majority of the flavor. Bit of char bitterness at the end. The malt body itself is fairly smooth but the over-carbonation really kills it. Too bad.
