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
