12 oz bottle provided by SweetWater. Served up in a standard shaker pint.

A: Exodus hits the glass a seemingly opaque, black liquid. Once held to the light, it shows that this is more of a dark brown to black body with lots of garnet hues pushing through. The body, although dark, proves to be clear and there is a lazy carbonation dancing around in there. The pour got me a finger of lightly tan colored head. The foam is airy, and it falls very quickly. Eventually the head disappears completely and there is no lace to speak of.

S: The aroma is dominated by a heavy roasted malt quality. It has a bit of a molasses sweetness intersecting with a dark chocolate richness and bitterness. These aromas begin to get overrun by a darkly roasted coffee note that is just intoxicating. The qualities of the nose do not deviate from the sweet side and I am not picking up any hop qualities mentioned in the label description. To be honest, the aroma is remains fantastic without the hops.

T: The flavor starts off with that dark roasted coffee presence first and foremost. That shifts slowly into a dark chocolate sweetness and bitterness. A touch of molasses, toffee and a nice nuttiness comes out from time to time. The hops slip through at the very end of each sip. The come out as a very light citrus note and an earthy quality. Most importantly they had the bitterness to bring a bit of balance to the sweetness. Fantastic.

M: Exodus is on the heavier side of medium in body. The carbonation level is on the lighter side and makes for a nice and creamy feel. This beer plays on both the sweet and bitter side of your palate creating nice balance. The ABV does not make itself known at all. Aftertaste is that light hop quality and some lingering coffee.

OA: Each time I have Exodus Porter I am reminded why I love porters. You cannot go wrong with a wonderfully full flavored beer that remains incredibly easy drinking. Exodus follows this description to a T. The flavors work together to near perfection and the body just makes for a fantastic drinking experience. Both bottles I sampled during this review session disappeared far too quickly, but that is just a testament to how well crafted and enjoyable Exodus is. Great beer.
