Sweetwater "Exodus Porter"
Sweetwater Brewing Company - Atlanta, Georgia USA
Porter (ABV 6.2%)

[Best served in a Pint glass]

Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a dark muddy brown with a very large (heavy side of 3 fingers) light brown foamy head that lasted a good long time, leaving being a ton of residue that layeyered the top of the beer thus producing some excellent lacing that totally coated the glass.

The aroma was of a roasted bread malt and a leathery doughy yeast with strong notes of roasted coffee, molasses and a bit of toffee.

The taste was nice and malty and a little sweet with just a hint of molasses in the beginning then proceeded to become a tad bitterer and was fully enhanced by a nice strong coffee note at the end. The flavor lingered on well after the swallow with the strong taste of malty coffee relaxing nicely on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just a shade under full in body and very creamy in texture with the carbonation being nice and soft.

Overall an exceptional Porter with everything working so well together that it produces a beer that has awesome flavor and a great drinkability.
