Our Old Neighborhood Oatmeal Porter will take you back to the good old days. This classic dark ale is rich and robust, yet silky smooth. Its distinct roasty essence is deliciously balanced with a slight sweetness creating a porter that boasts intense flavors.

Had this one on-tap at City Bev in town. The pour created a massive tan head on top that lingered for most of the session. The frothy cap produced aromas of roasted malt, chocolate powder, and a slightly chicory fade on the finish. Nice toasty nose. The mouth on this one is a bit thin and lacking in carbonation. A little too slick for me, but that could be the fault of the tap, not the beer itself. The flavors are as good as anticipated. Big roasty notes that aren’t charring or unpleasant in any way. Mild chocolate flavors add a touch of sweetness that prevents this beer from becoming too woodsy and burnt. Good balance of flavors going on. There is a slight metallic finish, but it fleets away quickly. This was good, but I’d love to revisit this is in bottle form to see how the mouth is remedied, if at all. This keeps reminding me why ME is one of my fave NC breweries.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Very dark, clingy bubbles on the inside of the glass, filmy. Clean, nutty sweet, slightly roasty aroma. A bit fruity, nicely bitter, moderately sweet, a little parched soy nut, faint creosote and black olive. Great mouthfeel, lots of body but good effervescence. Clean finish. On tap, Smokejack, Alpharetta.

It has aromas of oats and chocolate. The flavors mirror the aromas with the addition of nuts. There is a fairly high level of carbonation as well.

Draft at Dandelion Market, 216/15
Second thing I’ve tried from Mother Earth. I enjoyed this significantly more than I did their Kolsch. This is a solid Porter.

Nice toasted grain nose. head is present but fades. Sweet on the tongue. Mouth feel is good for the abv. Overall not to bad. At first not to good but if you let warm up to a good temperature this one really shines.

JDBaker11058 (1963) - Maryland, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Appearance: very dark brown, half a finger of creamy tan head shrinking quickly to a collar. Aroma: dark bittersweet chocolate, roasted coffee beans, bit of vanilla. Taste: as the aroma indicates, but a little sweeter. Finish: lingering roasty sweetness, with coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, and a nice smooth oatmeal note on the palate. Notes: Really enjoyable porter, would drink again. Bottle from Roots Market in Olney, Maryland.

While the aroma and color are barely there, the flavor definitely is there and impresses. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at lucky 12. Pours black with a small tan head that quickly dissipates. The aroma has roasted malt and milk chocolate notes. The taste is bitter chocolate and coffee grind.

12oz bottle shared by Ben. Unfiltered brown black body. Malt forward, smooth and creamy, very in line with other NC beers. Doughy brown chocolate tones. Medium bodied. Very drinkable. Well executed beer.

nimbleprop (7560) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 3, 2014
12oz bottle at Red Hen in DC. Pours a deep brown with some creamy, thin, off white head. Nose is alright, some cocoa pods, some gristy character, a little dusty, some caramel. Flavor follows right along, sweet malt, caramel, a little cheap rootbeer, some chocolate too, light bread crust. Watery finish. Unoffensive.
