Chocolate, roasty aroma, dark in color, thick caramel head, as it warms you get a slight smokey flavor and finishes smoeth and chocolatey, low carbonation. Drinks like a Dry Irish Stout really. cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Poured from a can into a pint glass. More hop forward aroma than most porters, but with the standard coffee and roasted malt aromas. Deep reddish-brown flavor with a tan head. Creamier than I’d expect from a porter, with plenty of hop assertiveness. Very low carbonation. It has a milk chocolate finish. Really smooth porter that doesn’t necessarily do anything special, but doesn’t do anything wrong either. It’s a hophead’s porter. Zywiec (2) - Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2013 does not count
Chocolate is the primary flavor with a copper bank end. Present middle of the road porter. drowland (9161) - Georgia, USA - NOV 30, 2013
11/27/13. On tap at White Duck Taco in Asheville. Great tacos, okay beer. Dark pour, almost black, with a small tan head. Mild roast aroma, some cocoa, coffee, cream, doughy malts. Mild flavor as well, some roast, coffee, chocolate, and cream. A little acidic from the roast. Not bad. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Deep brown pour, tan head. Up front chocolate notes, dark dried fruit, some nice solid roasted malt and a hint of a coffee finish.

Soft bitter chocolate finish; easy to drink. First impression of Asheville beer scene a good one

Floral, cocoa and coffee in the aroma. Pours a near black with faint candy red highlights and thin mocha colored head with no lacing. Some dry roast a touch of smoke, coffee and chocolate. A bit thin a bit of fruit. Tasty session porter. fluffy (2461) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2013
i found this one kinda watery and bland, nothing too notable in the flavors outside of dark grains. weak backbone on this ninja. chinchill (5341) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2013

Pours virtually black with a towering, sudsy tan head.
Very smooth with soft, low carbonation.
Medium intensity aroma and flavor.
Dark malts dominate with only a touch of burnt grain. A trace of dark fruit mid-taste and of smoke and coffee in the finish and aftertaste.
O: very nice porter in a can.
This is probably one on the easiest drinking dark beers I have ever hard. It’s a porter but it’s smooth enough to drink whenever. It’s even good from the can although on tap is my favorite.
