3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Everything about this beer was really damn good except that the palate seemed off to me. It just seemed undercarbed. The aroma was great with plenty of hazelnut evident. It had a nice coffee, hazelnut, chocolate flavor...like I said, just kind of an odd mouthfeel that held it back for me.

Keg @ Thirsty Monk, Asheville. Brown pour with a small off-white head. Smoked herb garden. Dark roasted malts with delicate accents of flower, grass root. Some wood. A mild accent of smoked ham. Mellow chocolate and nut. Peanut butter. Some dirt. Medium body, smooth. The nose has a nice floral character that doesn’t really follow through. Still, solid effort.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I dont usually love a porter, but this is one of the most delicious beers I’ve ever had. The tast has subtle hints of hazelnut and chocolate with the most even and smooth texture. The brewery offers the Wisteria Porter on Co2 and Nitro. I prefer the nitro. I cannot say enough good things about this porter.
