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.

Presented almost black with a ruby hue and a heavily lacing brownish head. Smells roasty with a little chocolate. Tastes roasty, a little cocoa, lots of hop bitterness. The oatmeal is a nice touch. Smooth in the mouth with a light body. Very drinkable

sweet malty oatmeal chocolate aromas which is well matched with the flavor. I would say that this one is just ok

A nice dark porter. Not as thick as you might expect. Slightly chocolately with a good balance. No real aftertaste, which is a positive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I've been a little spoiled with dark beers, but I really see an oatmeal beer having greater depth than this porter brings to the party ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Thick, dark black color with ruby tints and a thin, beige head with solid lacing. Lots of burnt, roasted malts with a hoppier finish. Roasts linger on the back of the tongue following a smooth, silky mouthfeel. Very tasty.

Very nice porter. Typical chocolate notes. Nicely malted. Smooth. Has a bizarre fruity aroma mixed with the chocolate. Nice beer.

Pours a black body with tan head. A suprisingly lively beer. Nose is grapefruit. Roasty and coffee flavors. Malty. Moderately bitter finish.

Pours vert dark brown/ black with a khaki head. Aroma is toffee, coffee, cereal grain, slight citrus. Flavor follows suit. Silky smooth texture, medium body. Very good beer.
