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.

3 Oz sample at Bonnaroo. Really great porter, very roasty and chocolatey tastes, still was light enough to drink in the heat. I love this beer and wished I could find it up north, great porter
