Pours a dark brown with beautiful ruby highlights when held to light. Smallish off white head dissipates quickly. Smells of chocolate, roast, citrus hops, and licorice, mmm. Taste is chocolate up front, some dark fruit and licorice midway melding into a citrusy roasty finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, light carbonation and medium body. Great drinkable porter here! If these were more available to me I would buy them all the time.

On draft at brewery. Smoky, spicy, very much like a brown ale. Typically, I don’t like porters, but this one is damn tasty. Enjoyability 3.5/5.

Purchased at Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville, NC; enjoyed from my hotel room on the ocean in Myrtle Beach, SC. Appearance is a very dark cola like brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is very nice and subtle, obvious chocolate malt presence with oats, touch of coffee as well. Taste goes down very smoothly, one of the smoothest porters I’ve had.  Chocolate and oats, maybe a touch of coffee bitterness, slightly rich, but mighty damn tasty.  This one is awesome.

Probably my favorite go to beer in the winter months, a chocolatey, nutty combination of wonder

I’ve had this beer several time and I’m ashamed I’ve never rated it... it is a go to dark. It’s got a medium body but a big flavor, making it excessively drinkable. There is a lot of roasted notes, I don’t pick up on the chocolate as much and really pleasant dried-fruit notes. God this beer is great!

Really oatmeal stout and I’m proud to see it being brewed in the Appalachian mountains. Rich earthy start, molasses middle. Slight hints of ash but could use a little something better on the finish.

Bottle. Poured a perfect dark brown color with a tan head and amazing lacing. Taste of roasted and toasted malts, oats, cocoa malts, malt heaven. High fizzy carb, medium body. Could drink this all day!

This was consumed at the brewery as part of a flight. The color was dark and rich with a light white head. This was rich on the tongue with both coffee and chocolate present as well as a touch of the oatmeal.

Heavy on the pallet, dark and delicious. Not super bitter at all. Great mouthfeel, not as creamy as I like ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
