Pours very dark ruby with off-white head. Nice roasty aroma with a hint of alcohol and hops. Flavor is somewhat weak. Slightly sour and malty at first and then bitter and dry at the end.

12 Oz. Very good looking porter, pours nice rich brown, aromas of hops, toffee, biscuits. It’s thinner than I wish but overall a great porter from these guys.

12oz bottle ----> tulip. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head and mild lace. Aroma is sweet, creamy oatmeal and roast. Taste is oats, chocolate, and mild licorice. Typical fairly thin porter mouthfeel, lightly carbonated. A very solid porter.

Caramel-coloerd head with moderate retention. Beer is dark brown, almost black, slight tinge of red when held up to bright light. Full-bodied and richly-flavored while still being smooth. Not as intense as many other porters. I think the presence of the oatmeal mellows it out. Maybe it isn’t truly representitive of porters, but I don’t care...I like it.

Pours a dark brown with a one-finger light brown head that fades quickly and leaves very little lacing. Aroma is weak, but mostly chocolate malts. Taste is the same, with sweetness overcoming a very modest hop bitterness. Overall, this is a very solid beer, but nothing particularly noteworthy. I could go for a second of these.

Good dark brown color. Tan head. has nice coffee aroma. Taste has hints of chocolate. Little week in the body but good overall.

donrajin (233) - Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, USA - MAR 17, 2005
This is by far one of the best porters I have ever had. Nice roasted coffee flavor and aroma. It is the smoothest and best mouthfeel I have ever had. When you want a world class porter, look no further.

3.3
dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Aroma of currant, grape, black cherry, oats, molasses. Appears a deep, dark, almost opaque brown with hints of ruby when held to the light. Flavor is mild roast coffee and chocolate; no apparent flavor of oatmeal. Palate is medium-light, a bit slick, with mild effervescence. Overall, a superb underlying porter but dissapointing in the non-appearance of oatmeal flavor. Still, my thanks go to Jonathan for this fine North Carolinian brew.
