Old North State Stout is made with roasted, pale and caramel malts plus American and English hops. Together they combine to make a full flavored ale with notes of dark chocolate.

This one is good...excellent as a matter of fact. Pours obsidian with medium dark tan head. Aroma of roasty, toasty malt and chocoff. Very rich taste with chocoff, some roast malt, and hints of anise. Complex and well balanced, with a dry, peuso hoppy finish. World class.

Black pour with tan head and lace. Light coffee aroma and toasted maltiness a hint of hops as well. Nice burnt coffee and a medium bitter followed by good carbonation and med/full palate make this a real good beer for me.

At the brewery. Dark brown/black pour with a thin tan head. The aroma is light chocolate, grainy, coffee. Subdued nose and flavor. grainy, weird upfront taste, a little bitter, chocolatey. Mediocre palate. Maybe i’ll try it again.

From the growler brought to the Carolina tasting. Thanks Todd! pour was very black with a balanced roasted malt, chocolate, and creamy flavor. Hops noted, but do not take away from the rich roastiness that makes this beer. Roasty without being bitter. The best beer I have ever had from Carlina Brewery, Impressive.

Draft at brewpub. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Sort of thin Mouthfeel. Nice roasted malt and chocolate nose on the nose. Lots of cocoa on the tongue. Finishes clean and tight. Just a lovely beer.

Pint@ brewpub. Good aroma. Very dry viney chocolately. Blackish brown color, small head, that lasted a bit. Good lace. Bitter flavor. Again a grapey, vineous,chocolately. Medium body, smooth watery mouthfeel, bitter fruity finish. Nice easy to drink stout. Could sip all day. Really was liking the grape I was getting as it warmed.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with beige head. The aroma is cold coffee, cola, and brazil nuts. The flavor reminds me of Coke Blak (that Coca-Cola and coffee mixture stuff), but not as carbonated. Grainy sweetness throughout, slightly metallic finish.

Growler brought to the Carolina tasting by Libeerian, thanks Todd. I was surprised and also saddened when I saw a big growler full of black beer, and then realized it was not the Foothills Sexual Chocolate. But then I was also surprised, because it was a new stout from a brewery that I have little experience with. It pours just like I would imagine it would, black, with a tan head. Smell is full of roasted and chocolate malt flavors. Some sweetness as well. Taste is dry yet not overly hopped like the CBC Porter was. Smooth and highly drinkable this one was. Better the warmer it got, and at the end of the night, there was some left, so I got another big glass of it. It was really good at almost room temperature. A really fine dry stout for certain.
