Had in a bottle at Wayside in Biltmore with Red Sox game. Decent porter- pretty heavy mouthfeel so only a "3" for palate. Feels more stout-like to me. Pours dark brown with reddish tinge. Decent head and lacing. Tons of chocolate and coffee on the nose/ palate. On the sweet side for me- maybe too much vanilla/caramel in there? Great winter beer- feeling a bit more like lighter spring brews at the moment.

On tap courtesy of Green Man for RBWG. Dark brown pour. Aroma is mild of cocoa beans, slightly earthy with sticky toffee. Flavor feels like it’s heavy on the crystal. Sweet caramel masks the mild coffee and chocolate flavors.

Aromas of vanilla and chocolate. Taste was very smooth that left a sweet vanilla flavor until the next sip. Excellent brew from a brewery that continues to produce solid brews! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
