Pours a black body with tan head. A suprisingly lively beer. Nose is grapefruit. Roasty and coffee flavors. Malty. Moderately bitter finish.

Very good looking porter, pours nice rich brown, aromas of hops, toffee, biscuits. It’s thinner than I wish but overall a great porter from these guys.

12oz bottle ----> tulip. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head and mild lace. Aroma is sweet, creamy oatmeal and roast. Taste is oats, chocolate, and mild licorice. Typical fairly thin porter mouthfeel, lightly carbonated. A very solid porter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Caramel-coloerd head with moderate retention. Beer is dark brown, almost black, slight tinge of red when held up to bright light. Full-bodied and richly-flavored while still being smooth. Not as intense as many other porters. I think the presence of the oatmeal mellows it out. Maybe it isn’t truly representitive of porters, but I don’t care...I like it.

A nice dark porter. Not as thick as you might expect. Slightly chocolately with a good balance. No real aftertaste, which is a positive.

This is by far one of the best porters I have ever had. Nice roasted coffee flavor and aroma. It is the smoothest and best mouthfeel I have ever had. When you want a world class porter, look no further.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of currant, grape, black cherry, oats, molasses. Appears a deep, dark, almost opaque brown with hints of ruby when held to the light. Flavor is mild roast coffee and chocolate; no apparent flavor of oatmeal. Palate is medium-light, a bit slick, with mild effervescence. Overall, a superb underlying porter but dissapointing in the non-appearance of oatmeal flavor. Still, my thanks go to Jonathan for this fine North Carolinian brew.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark brown with a one-finger light brown head that fades quickly and leaves very little lacing. Aroma is weak, but mostly chocolate malts. Taste is the same, with sweetness overcoming a very modest hop bitterness. Overall, this is a very solid beer, but nothing particularly noteworthy. I could go for a second of these.

Fantastic beer with some depth and it gets even better once it hits room temperature, coffee, some bitter chocolate very well balance! I loved it
