Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Slight chocolate aroma with more hops aroma than most porters. Thin mouthfeel but with a nice medium taste. Not to malty or hoppy taste.

12 oz bottle, served in a pint glass. Pours dark brownish black with medium thick creamy mocha head. Aroma is smooth dark roasty malt, light creamy chocolate notes. Taste is crisp super smooth dark chocolate malt, light roasty notes on the finish. Really well balanced. Oatmeal makes this incredibly smooth. One of the better straight porters I’ve had; in the same league as Black Butte, Edmund Fitzgerald, etc. Only shortcoming is perhaps a little light on the hops.

Pours dark brown with a small light tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and toasted malts. Taste is pretty much the same, big roasty malts. Almost stout like, but a little thinner. Easy to drink. Very good!

Draught at the Barley's, Asheville, NC.
Dark reddish brown almost black colour with a small light tan head.
Roasted malt, sweetness, mild coffee and dark chocolate in the aroma.
Roasted malt, sweetness and mild hops in the flavour. Decent porter. A bit less sweetness and it'll be great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Brisben shared at Porch Nite. Pours a dark brown with a finger or so of head. Aroma is chocolate, slight roast. Flavor is still chocolate and very slight roastiness but is also somewhat sweet with some toffee. Seems too sweet, though. Overall a good beer.
