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.

Dark brown in the glass. This is beyond very smokey, it is liquid smoke. Not much flavor beyond that. A very interesting beer, but not easy to drink.

Enjoyed a growler full with great people in Indianapolis. Nice smoky nose with a hint of sweetness. Hickory. Appearance was a bit light for a porter. Taste was nice and smoky with a faint sweetness. Kinda how I like my ribs. Not a lot of porter flavors but the flavors were still good. Palate was touch thin but still went down smooth. Overall a really good beer that was more interesting than a lot of the run of the mill beers that a lot of places are turning out. Nice work!
