3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the brewery, it pours the deepest mahogany with ruby fringes, a tan ring head that leaves spiderweb lace. The nose is malty with hints of grain. The flavors are of caramel toasted malt, roasts, esters and finishing with lightly roasted grains. The mouthfeel is light, with a round body and smooth palate. Subtle, soft carbonation activated with fruity esters and some maple syrup. Decent take on the porter here.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance is a candied black-brown with light off-white lacing. Aroma is medium-to-strong of candied fruit, brown sugar and molasses. The palate is full of molasses and dark corn syrup, with more corn syrup and brown sugar on the finish. A touch on the sticky-sweet side, but not too much. Delicious overall, and Iím sure I would enjoy it even more if we werenít drinking it in 95 degree heat.

Nice as porters go, and evidently judging by how many people are drinking this one whenever I visit the wedge, itís obviously a popular favorite.

Draft at Mellow Mushroom in Asheville. Loved it. Great roasty flavor, not too heavy... big thumbs up. I would drink the heck out of this if I lived there.

On tap at the Brewery. Black, nice tan head. Chocolate and coffee, of course, but also a fruity, garpey aroma. Pretty much the same with the flavor, as well. I like the grape note - It makes it unique and tasty. Pretty good stuff.

Tap @ Wedge Brewing Co.
Black pour. White head. Flavor has a lot of roast. Very sweet roast. Light molasses, eucalyptus, and far spruce. Overly caramelized sugar. Itís just an odd complexity of flavor. Chocolate malts. Huge. Aroma of chicory, herbal hops, chocolate malts, chocolate, hops, a touch of house blend coffee. Simple nose, complex overall. AWESOME! My favorite of Wedge.
