ON tap at Summits Wayside Tavern...EXCELLENT porter from Highland..Nice roasted malt flavors companied with chocolate and some bitter coffe flavor...Thick and sustaining this beer could be a meal on its own. Very pleasantly suprised by this a quality porter from a smallish brewery in the mountains of NC.

This is the only real porter that I can drink and enjoy every last sip. I savor this beer from the minute I get it until the minute it is gone. It is great on tap or bottled. I drink it faster on tap though. Highly recommend it to people that like light or dark beers.

My 100th rating! On tap at the Foundry. Opaque black body with tinges of red around the edges, with a creamy thick tan head; a pleasure to look at. Sweet, smoky aroma of coffee and bitter chocolate. Flavor is likewise big and malty, with excellent chocolate/espresso notes and a great roastiness. Thick, luscious, and creamy in my mouth, this beer really satisfies. Yum.

I really enjoyed this beer. Pours a very dark color that is simply a joy to look at. Head is a Guinnessy tan color that dissipates quickly but smells completely amazing. The aromas range from a dark chocolate to a molasses and brown sugar and the flavor matches nearly perfectly. A perfect beer that reminds me of grandmas oatmeal/chocolate-chip cookies. In my mind, this is exactly the kind of thing to look for from a good local southern brewery. Highly reccomended and a beer I will definately look for in the future.

Not a bad brew at all. Thick like molasses nice tan head about a 1/4 in thick. Flattens out. Nose is pretty rusty smelling. Subdued chocolate and maybe just a hint of brown sugar and oats...mainly just roasty. Flavors are well balanced. The roasted grains and the hops really do compliment each other very well. Roasted, bitter, and with that medicine like sweetness that oatmeal gives off I like this its not bad at all. Would love to see an amped up version of it. G-rat

Bottled, thanks SpringsLicker! Transparently black, lasting head. Grapefruit aroma. Dry and very aromatic with soft mouthfeel. The finish is really salty with good bitterness.
