Floral, cocoa and coffee in the aroma. Pours a near black with faint candy red highlights and thin mocha colored head with no lacing. Some dry roast a touch of smoke, coffee and chocolate. A bit thin a bit of fruit. Tasty session porter.

12 oz can served in a mug.
Pours virtually black with a towering, sudsy tan head.
Very smooth with soft, low carbonation.
Medium intensity aroma and flavor.
Dark malts dominate with only a touch of burnt grain. A trace of dark fruit mid-taste and of smoke and coffee in the finish and aftertaste.
O: very nice porter in a can.

This is probably one on the easiest drinking dark beers I have ever hard. It’s a porter but it’s smooth enough to drink whenever. It’s even good from the can although on tap is my favorite.

On tap at the brewery. Pours black with a white head. Nose of sweet malts and roast. Roasted flavors some acidic roast. A little cream in the flavor as well. Decent.

This one sat in the fridge for awhile after I had brought it back from a backpacking trip in North Carolina. Pours nearly black with a hint of red. Head is limited and lacing nearly nonexistent. Mouthfeel is slightly viscous with a limited amount of carbonation. Alcohol and roasted grain dominate the nose. Flavor is roasty with a touch of citrus. I think this beer may be a bit underrated. Goes well with a touch of praline ice cream. Bottle - Ingles Market - Brevard, NC

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Dark brown (nearly black) pour, with a huge, bubbly, tan head. Aroma of burnt sugar, cherries, very light coffee, and some peat. Nice, mellow sweetness through the middle, with some light bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body, lightly astringent, and a little watery. Light carbonation. Overall, this is an interesting porter, with very little of the standard burnt aromas, but focusing instead on a good hop profile. The mouthfeel is a little weak, though.
