2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft, sampler: a tad boring, pours dark brown with a tasty looking tan head. It smells chocolaty, and roasty, but leaves you wishing for it in the flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Asheville brewing - pours a dark brown with a off white head. Served too cold, so I’m not getting alot on the nose other than chocolate and malt. Taste is smokey bitterness that gently lingers. Palate is astringent and smooth, weird. Overall an average porter.
