COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark doesn’t always have to be scary, and this beer is a great example of that. This 6% ABV ale has a sily smooth mouth feel due to a large addition of wheat. Malt flavors of chocolate and subtle toast are backed by a woody hop character.

On tap at the brew pub in Asheville. Top notch creamy porter with smooth chocolate and malts thriughout. One of the best porters I've had. Put it up there with victory at sea with a lower abv. Wish they bottled this bad boy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b3shine (8804) - Indiana, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Draft to taster at the brewpub. This batch is 7% abv. Looks solid; a translucent cola with foamy beige head. Smells of a nice balance of dark malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and mild roast. Tastes like it smells with some toast as well. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and fairly bitter. Enjoyable.

nearbeer (5372) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Pint on tap at Tyler’s Tap Room Durham. Ebony with a thin cream on top. Mild aroma of dry cocoa, dust, caramel and a touch of coffee. Taste is the same. Smooth, near-medium body has medium carbonation and a good balance.

HourGlass13 (849) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, light cocoa, and smoke. Flavor is similar with coffee, roast, and light smoke. Over all slightly bland and watery, with some hops in the finish. Okay.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2016 A clean malty porter sporting some cocoa powder notes. Chocolaty nose. Nice tan lacing. Balanced with lingering dry finish.
