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. franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2007
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 joekinty (263) - rockledge, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2008
sweet malty oatmeal chocolate aromas which is well matched with the flavor. I would say that this one is just ok Stampion (263) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 29, 2012
A nice dark porter. Not as thick as you might expect. Slightly chocolately with a good balance. No real aftertaste, which is a positive.

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

Fantastic beer with some depth and it gets even better once it hits room temperature, coffee, some bitter chocolate very well balance! I loved it

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. ebarnes (261) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Very nice porter. Typical chocolate notes. Nicely malted. Smooth. Has a bizarre fruity aroma mixed with the chocolate. Nice beer. Bailz316 (256) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Pours a black body with tan head. A suprisingly lively beer. Nose is grapefruit. Roasty and coffee flavors. Malty. Moderately bitter finish. 1guywith_aboat (254) - phenix city, Alabama, USA - APR 23, 2014
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.
