I thought this was an excellent beer that had local flavors that really represented North Carolina! Excellent porter that could be a staple brew from this brewery.

Pretty dark pour and sits black in the glass with two fingers of dense head. Nose shows lots of coffee and dark roast. A touch of rustic/earthy malt and some bitter chocolate. Coffee dominated the flavor and killed the body, as it is oft to do. A touch like drinking coffee with beer in it, an effect that I am less fond of than others. Some dark roast and a noticeable acidity. Light body and thin mouth feel.

2/21/14. Draft at Fullsteam. Pours almost black with a thin mocha head and a touch of lacing. Mild nutty nose. Nice subtle pecan and coffee notes in tasting. Very subtle and nicely balanced. Thinner porter style but better mouthfeel than many. No bitterness.

Dark black pour with small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma of nuts and malts and coffee. Flavor was a bit bittersweet with the roasted nuts and maltiness coming through. Thick mouthfeel and not a bad aftertaste. Good for style.

Tap at SAMs. Had no idea this was brewed with pecans when I was drinking it but it makes more sense now. Nose is light roasty coffee and some light nutty sweetness. Flavor mimics nose. Well balanced, if a bit on the sweeter side. A little bit thin for the style, but overall a solid offering from a brewery which often struggles with consistency.
