Draft at the source. Clear maroon brown color, tan head. Very chocolatey aroma. Taste is dark cocoa. Decent enough. emacgee (4674) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Dark pour with some light on the edges. Creamy tan head. Burnt sugar, cacao, and dark fruit in the nose. Kind of milk stouty. Drake (13647) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #139. Draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of caramel, brown malt, butter, tart fruits. The taste is roasted malts and butter. Thin bodied, weak, off. Honestly, how do you fuck up the stout? maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Draught. Pours a very dark, almost black color with a moderate tan head. Very smooth and thick drink. Nose and taste both have some coffee and roasting to it. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - SEP 21, 2012
On tap. Black pour with a tan top. Scent is coffee and chocolate. Taste is much the same.

On tap at Draft, Raleigh. Better than the porter to me, a nicely dry session stout that goes well with the cow and bison slung here. Handsome dark pour with a fluffy tan head. It still could use a slightly more emboldened body, but the mouthfeel is full and a nice combination of creamy and chalky. Good balance of smooth chocolate and dry roasted malts with an understated hop presence. brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2010
On tap at Tribeca Tavern in Cary. Pours a very black color with red highlights and a nice foamy tan head. This stout has clearly evident chocolate, coffee, and licorice aromas. The mouthfeel is very creamy. Taste is lots of chocolate, coffee, licorice and oats with a slightly dry finish. Not a bad brew for a $3 tap special. Tasty.

Serving: Draft at the Twisted Fork in Raleigh.
It pours pretty much pitch black with a creamy, tan head. Nice lacing left behind. The nose is very muted with slight roasted malt notes coming through. The taste is a bit weak and watery with over roasted malt, husk, and an odd dry finish. Not as much flavor as it should have. A light to medium body leading to a dry, roasty finish. It seems to be served on nitro which reallys seems to have blunted all aspects of this brew. Not good in a case where there probably wasn’t much to begin with. Skip this one.

Dark with a nice head.
Creamy body with a malty taste.
Very decent porter. especially good on draft at the Mash House itself.
Would definitely recommend. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007
very dark ruby, lasting fine tan head, good lace, creamy body, nice creamy roasted flavor, touch of milky sweetness, light bitterness in the finish, an easy drinking stout
