a little thin and dry, there was a little butterscotch in the background but overall nice.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Coffee and roasted chicory allusions ride vanilla and chocolate in this soft dessert of a brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is a lot of lacing atop the dark brown haze.
-Bitter hop resins appear to balance out the finish.
-These brewers aren’t shy with bittering hops...
-Drinkability is high enough.

On tap at the brewery taproom.

Christpuncher (1395) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Top notch local porter. Smokey and chocolately. Had a draft pour at the Carolina ale house black in color with a tan head. Smells chocolatey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kinz (3365) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Draft at Charlotte airport. Poured black with brown edges, slight head. Aroma was faintly sweet dark chocolate and espresso. Flavor was fortunately not sweet, lots of chocolate, faint coffee, and a coconut finish. Bitterness balanced. Very enjoyable. Need to keep an eye out for NoDa, really liked both of the beers I tried from here.

snoworsummer (2473) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Draft at Old Mill. Pours dark ruby brown with a fizzy tan head and lots of lacing. Tastes like dark bitter chocolate, very roasted malt, burnt toast, and a syrupy sweetness. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like dry cocoa, chocolate syrup, and light alcohol.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Serving: Draft at A Taste of Carolina in the Charlotte airport. It pours a deep brown color. Roasted nuts in the nose with a little maltiness. The taste has plenty of roasted malt, nuttiness, slight mineral notes, a touch of baker’s chocolate, and a bit of bitterness. Comes across as more like a dry Irish stout or robust porter than just a regular porter. Either way it’s pretty darn good.
