dark brown with almost no head, smells like fresh nuts, very hoppy porter, quite refreshing at light without losing substance... a citrusy bitterness starts the taste and from there its hops and chocolate

Very smooth beer. Pours dark dark dark. This beer gets better the warmer it gets. Roasted/ toasted notes are delicious. Great porter!

Very dark body with a pleasant smell. Taste of oatmeal very present with slight roasted flavors following. The end was slightly hoppy, almost balanced. Wonderful beer, but I think it needed to be a bit more roasted and chocolatey to be called a porter. It didn’t contain a bite like a stout would either. It was very smooth... not sure what to call it except good!

Nice aroma, coffee, caramel.Pours kind of a dark brown with not much head. Looks almost like a soda. Flavor hits nice, but ends with a kind of dull roastiness. A littel thin, but not too bad overall.

This smelled like a homebrew gone wrong. Aroma of liquid malt extract that wasn’t completely fermented. Tastes like bread and cardboard. Just not enjoyable at all. I couldn’t make it through the first quarter of the glass. Possibly a bad bottle.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Semi-transparent dark pour with a thin, light tan head and strong sweet cocoa & dark chocolate aroma. The line between sweet stout & this porter is very thin. Very nice taste that imitates the smell with some vanilla and the slightest bitterness that cuts some of the sweetness. Flavorful & enjoyable.

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

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.

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