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....

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.

Aurelius (3908) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Good label, bomber. Very dark almost opaque, not much head. Plasticky aroma with molasses and roast. Tangy, medium sweet fruitiness and also some non-descript veggie tones. Slightly heavy body. Tangy finish. Warming. This lost back-to-back with Vortex II, as it tasted a bit unfinished - maybe it was just palate shock. I need to revisit one day. Thanks to Lance @ Proof.

22 ounce bottle. Poured a darker brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma has some sweeter rum notes with brown sugar and and a thick sweetness. Pretty good.

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle poured into imperial pint. Murky black color, nearly opaque. A deep tan head formed upon pouring but nearly instantly vanished leaving no head remnants at all. Aroma is of dark roasty malt, chocolate, leather, and strong alcohol. Flavor is just wonderful. More roasted malt, hints of chocolate and coffee, and a touch of Belgian spice flank the big boozey rum and oak flavors from the barrel aging. This is a very unique, balanced, and STRONG tasting brew. Incredibly warming, this may be the most liquor flavor I’ve ever experienced in a barrel aged beer. Wow...

mojoman (133) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. The Belgian yeast seems to bring a fruity taste to this porter and of course the rum barrels where the brew aged gives this a great complex taste almost akin to a sour. Great stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shag (2559) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2013
This poured a black color with a beige head. The aroma contains some chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, and spices. The flavor is sweet but not overly so with some chocolate, caramel, and grapes. A slightly sour aftertaste. Overall a nice and different beer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Bottle from OldGrowth. Thanks! Poured an opaque dark brown color. The head was one finger high and reduced quickly to a thin lasting film. Smelled of apple liqueur, molasses, bitter chocolate and spices. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with a splash of booze. Carbonation was on the higher end of the spectrum. Roasted malt dominated the flavor with dark fruit, caramel apple, and spice accents.
