Tap @ Admiral. Deep brown with tan head. Smells a tad chocolaty and a little roasty. Starts sweet, then roasty, then dry. Heavier than some porters on the carbonation. Bit I still like it.

ben4321 (4535) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Location: Draft at The Admiral, Asheville, 1/2/15

Aroma: Has a sweet chocolate aroma, with some caramel malts, as well as some roasted notes.
Appearance: It has a dark brown pour, with a light brown head, and fairly coating lace.
Flavor: It has a somewhat sweet flavor, similar to the nose, a mild bitterness balances it.
Palate: Medium bodied, with a rather creamy, smooth, and clean feel, and a soft carbonation.
Overall Impression: I quite enjoyed this one. It is a sweeter porter, but not to the point of being unpleasant or cloying. There’s some balance here. It is very easy drinking and quaffable as well, which is always a plus. I was very high on this.

rosenbergh (8245) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Draught at the Wedge, Asheville, NC. 6.8%. Black colour with a tiny red hue and a small tan head. Sweet fruity hoppy aroma with some sweet and dark maltiness. Not bad. Not a roasted and coffee one. The flavour is sweet dark fruitiness, dark malt and mild roasty notes. Balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft taster at the brewery. Pours dark brown with reddish highlights and a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, chocolate, a larger dose of dark fruits with a hint of caramel. The only negative I can see was the light body.
