Part of flight at brewery. Decent porter- bit of a heavy-er mouthfeel. Flavors are as expected- coffee, chocolate, sweet malt- overall smooth and balanced and very drinkable. Nothing exceptional.

Draft to taster at Pisgah. Looks good; a translucent dark brown with foamy beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of dark malt, hops, and a bit of roast. Average on the palate. A decent no-frills porter.

On tap @ source. Pours a reddish orange appearance with a tan head. Some smoke and a fair amount of roast in the nose. Chocolate. Moderately sweet. Earthy, herbal hops. A bit tangy. OK.

Brown/black pour with tan head and lace. Aroma of coffee, light chocolate, and roasted malt. Light chocolate, a hinto coffee, and roasted malt flavor. Semi sweet from start to finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. I like this beer

Growler picked up from Bruisin’ Ales. Dark brown pour, with a light beige head. Nice aroma of chocolate malts, slight vanilla and slight hops. Creamy texture with a nice subtle chocolate flavor.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2012
Originally reviewed: 10/25/10. 22oz bottle, poured into a pint glass. Pours a fairly transparent dark ruby-shaded mahogany. This was an odd color. Not as dark as expected. Small head on top. No lace. The nose was slightly roasted, some vinous scents, and hints of coffee. Nothing really bold though. The mouth was moderately carbonated. Not as smooth as I’d like. A little slick and wet on the back end. This Porter was not bold in any way. Light roasted flavor, some minor chocolate sweetness, but more overpowering in the fruit flavor. This Porter is off base. Nothing to really stand on. I appreciate that this is organic, but that’s about it. I likely won’t get this again. Move on to better Porters.

Draught at White Duck Taco in Asheville. Thin body with bubble carbonation. Slight chocolate flavor. Light.

Definitely one of the better porters I’ve had. Pours dark brown from tap with a thin khaki head. Pretty sizable coffee notes on the nose. Coffee on the tongue as well as hints of chocolate. Finish has some hoppiness to it which dries the tongue nicely.
