If you like 70+ percent dark chocolate and fairly bitter porters, you will enjoy this beer. I kind of do. The head is very complementing in taste. This is one of Brew and View’s best beers, so regardless of the beer, if you’re in Asheville, go and support the place! 2 bucks for a movie and 9 bucks for a pitcher- beat that.
Can (Feb 24, 2017 canning).
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, brown, mostly/fully diminishing.
Body is dark brown to black.
Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate syrup, roasted grain), with a note of vanilla.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Very simple aroma, and kinda sweet and flabby in the mouth. Pretty dull and forgettable, but not there’s not too much wrong with it otherwise. obguthr (6304) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Toast, kibble, cardboard aroma. Cola brown, thin tan head. Cardboard, coffee, raisin. Medium body, easy carbonation. Darwenus (1113) - Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Not an unusual or surprising porter, but a solid one. Pours dark, chocolate brown with little head. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, porter malts. The flavor is the same, but it closes with a slight but nice hoppy twang. I’d drink this again. rxeight (3047) - Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2016

12oz can thanks to TAR AirForceHops (7144) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Pours black with a medium sized tan head, good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, caramel with some coffee. Flavors of caramel, dark roast malts, chocolate and bitter coffee
A nice porter
12 oz. can thanks going out to TAR on this one. Aroma is cocoa powder, weak roast, traces of coffee. Flavor is a a mirror image of the aroma. Low roasted roasted malt backbone. Body is right for a porter and the carbonation gave a smooth/ creamy texture. Pretty well made, standard Porter.
