COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crafted to pair with North Carolina barbecue. This hickory-smoked porter is special. Malted barley is home-smoked over local hickory, creating a dark-and-smoky beer. Light on the hops. Here, the emphasis is on the smoke, bringing out just a touch more of that Carolina ‘cue trademark subtle smoke. Western or Eastern…for once it don’t matter none.

Pours a dark coppery brown that shows significant light and produces a one finger foamy tan head. Nose is smoky and meaty, mildly goaty with some hay, copper/rusty, Munich malts showing a little (?). Flavor reminds me of a barn or hay that goats have been in, smoky, woody, some rusty malt, medium hop bitterness. Palate shows a medium hop bite and decent body. Needs more "porter", looks like a robust brown and doesn’t have much character besides smoked grain.

Draft at the release party at Tylers. Pours dark brown but a little thin overall in color and mouthfeel. Nose is not short on the smoke which I Appreciate very much. I feel like the smoke dominates this beer and it’s kinda lacking on the dark roasted malt in flavor. I feel like it’s more of a smoke beer than a porter but in both cases, it needs more body. With that being said, it’s a pretty easy drinker and tasty.

Draft @ Tyler’s. Aroma of beef jerky. This is a light bodied, easy drinking beer with a lot of smokey goodness balanced with some nice malt base. A session smoked porter? Sure!
