COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A wandering LoneRider, never staying in one place too long. DeadEye Jack represents our seasonal porter consisting of a strong malty background with hints of roasted chocolate, subtle sweetness and low hop bitterness

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2009
On tap at the brewery - pours an oily black color with a thin bronw head. Nose of roasted coffee, chocolate and malt, Very smooth, rich flavor that is very roasty and malty along with a nice taste of chocolate and some bitterness to finish it off. Solid porter and one that I am looking forward to seeing in bottles very soon - I hope!

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2009
On tap at Raleigh WBF. Deep dark near black pour. Lovely nose of espresso and dark chocolate. Really lovely. Some grainy notes. Not quite as amazing on the taste because of the graininess, but very good overall. Liking this new brewery so far, though I still hope they rebrand their stuff. This Wild West theme is bullshit.

emacgee (4010) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2010 Bottle sample. Pours a dark black allowing some rusty copper highlights and producing a two finger creamy dark tan head. Nose is very nice, coffee and grain roast, subtle sweetness, chocolate and earthy malt character. Flavor is very round and traditional, nice dark grain character with chocolate and coffee with a subdued sweetness. Low grain bitterness and roast with a nice full mouthfeel. Great porter.

Draft at WBF. Very nice and roasty. A very interesting porter, seemed to have more of a roasted barley quality than black patent.

timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2009
On tap. Dark brown pour, light tan head. Nice, but subdued roasted aromas of malt and coffee, with some chocolates. Taste is not a huge deviation from the aromas. Smooth and peaty chocolate with some roast malt and coffee. A little thin, but I had this one warmer day so it was real nice and drinkable. One of the better "smaller" beers of the day. Good to see more and more brewers popping up in North Carolina.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 29, 2009
On tap at La Rez in Chapel Hill. Pours a dark brown with a small, tan head. Big roasted malt nose with coffee grounds. Taste is bitter coffee grounds, semisweet chocolate, and charred wood. Fairly astringent on the palate. Body is slightly watery. Not very impressive.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2009
On tap at the very first brewery tour. Dark pour with a nice tan head/ Roasted malt dominates the nose. Coffee, bitter chocolate, and just a touch of hop bitterness in the finish. Looking forward to drinking this again.
