COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark and mysterious this 150th Batch of Pisgah beer is a tribute to our homebrew roots. Combining the rich chocolate flavor of a Baltic Porter with the subtleness of a special Belgian yeast strain, the Cosmos is born....

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2008
22 oz. corked bottle on 5/20/08. Foamy light brown head settles in over a deep mahogany pour, and proves to be quite sturdy and durable, even if the lace is on the slippery side. Dark fruitiness on the nose, some chocolate, bready yeast, and a hint of earthiness as well. Medium body and carbonation, softly dry on the palate, pleasing creamy smoothness.

Nice rounded maltiness up front, chased by a tangy bitterness in a well balanced finish. Alcohol is a subtle feature throughout. Easy drinking and well crafted, makes me proud to be from NC!!!

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle courtesy of durhambeer. Pours dark brown with a diminishing tan head. Smells of cherries, chocolate, dark fruit, molasses. Tastes dry and roasty with a tarte kick to it. Lots of okay hints and a chewy mouthfeel. This is just a really good beer that stretches the stylistic boundaries and brings them to new places. Excellent!

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2008
Very dark pour with huge tan head... overcarbonated, really. Sweet, malty, sour, complex nose... lots of brown sugar. Really lovely. More of a baltic porter on the palate... a little roasty, greasy, some milk and chocolate, cola, but Belgian sugar, too. A great and unique beer from Pisgah.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - APR 8, 2008
Opaque brown with very active carbonation and a tight off-white head. Smokey, malty sweet caramel aroma and flavor. Sweet and malty with a lightly bitter finish. Not bad overall.

emacgee (4024) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2008
Got a few of these from Bruisin Ales. Poured a dark brown with a one finger tan creamy head. The aroma was roasty, meaty, grainy smoky malt, not much Belgian element. The flavor is similar, meaty and smoky, light hop, roasty, chocolate, no Belgian influence. The palate is smooth and lightly carbonated.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2008
The color was medium brown. The head was thin, creamy, and light tan. The aroma was spice, sweet, belgian yeast, and soap. The flavor was belgian yeast, spice, sweet, and light ginger. The palate was smooth. The finish was warm.

jobyone (234) - Charlotte, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours dark brown with medium tan head. The aroma has chocolate and fruit. The taste has lots of burnt flavors, coffee, chocolate, roasted malt along with some belgium yeastiness. The finish has a small amount of bitterness.

A big improvement on on the Baptista using the same Belgian yeast. I really like what some of these NC brewers are doing with the Baltic Porter style. First it was Duck Rabbit and now Pisgah! Sort of like a sweeter, less spicy Abbey Triple.

dark brown with ruby edges, wispy beige head, drippy lace, rich milk chocolate aroma with a touch of fruity sweetness to bring out the chocolate, rich chocolate flavor, nice milk chocolate sweetness, no bitterness allows the rich chocolate to dominate, this is what every chocolate porter wants to be,

the fruity character comes out really strong in the aroma and flavor to blend with the rich chocolate to create this special beer, a touch of hot alcohol fumes,
