Pisgah Mole Stout
Bottle from unknown place. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Nice notes of roasted malt, chocolate, and cinammon on the nose and tongue. Has some solid heat on the finish. Pretty good.

Pisgah Pale Ale
Can. Pours a clear dark gold body with a one finger frothy white head that left some light lacing. The nose is much more grainy and toasted maltiness than it is hoppy. Just a very slight floral note in there. The flavor is also pretty heavy on the toasted and grainy maltiness. A light floral hop bitterness in the middle, but not exactly a stunner in the hop department. This tastes a bit more like it could be billed as an Amber ale, rather than an APA. Light bodied and a touch grainy with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, not a big fan of this guy, it's just a bit too boring. 3/6/5/3/12

Pisgah Greybeard IPA
12oz can at Big Mike’s. Pours clear yellow-gold with a thin white head. Citrus and malt flavors with a mild hops profile for an IPA. Light bitterness on the finish. Very drinkable (esp. while waiting for pizza).

Pisgah Greybeard IPA
On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head with nice lacing, moderately carbonated. Aroma is floral, money with some grai a and malts. Taste is neither delicious nor balanced. A grainy taste with some resin and malt a lighter almost watery body with a chalky mouth feel and a bitter hop finish. A very underwhelming IPA.

Pisgah 10th Anniversary Vanilla Oatmeal Porter
Bottle from Bestway. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Solid vanilla notes on nose and tongue along with some roasted malt action. Finished clean. I wish I could have tried this on nitro so that oatmeal slickness could have been more pronounced.

Pisgah Vanilla Porter
Draft @ Pour Asheville - The vanilla comes through strongly. I had it on nitro, so that added to the tan head. Nice!

Pisgah Greybeard IPA
Sample at Hoof Hearted during the "Konkey Dong - Can Release Party" on 05/07/2017. Cloudy golden color with a medium white head that recedes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, grapefruit and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

Pisgah Nitro Stout
Draft at source. Nitro. Aroma is deep chocolate with a coffee overtone. Roasty. Taste is less roasty. A touch thin. Seemingly bland. Drinkable but it’s just like, a stout, man. Could use a little more complexity I guess. Ok.

Pisgah Cherry Wheat
Draft at source. Hazy reddish gold with a small white head. Strong cherry aroma. Sweet. Taste follows witha. Subtle sweetness. Not artificial but just a touch sweet. Maybe light carbonation? Bump it up a touch to break up the mouthfeel? Nice.

Pisgah L.E.A.F.
Draft at source. Earthy toasty malt aroma. Light bready flavors. Not too bad for a style that most places just brew to have. The earthiness is really pleasant and dry without all that crappy caramel sweetness to it. Solid.

Pisgah Blueberry Wheat
Draft at source. Hazy blonde pour with a small white head. Strong blueberry and candy sugar sweetness on the nose. Tastebis similarly artificial and candy like. Blueberry extract flavor just kills this. Edit. Menu says blueberry concentrate. So I guess it isn’t extract. Bubfor me it just has a candy sweetness that is weird.

Pisgah Je Ne Sais Quad
Draft at source. Strong grape and grape juice aroma. Clear deep red. Small off white head. Notes of alcohol, wood, vanilla all in the first sip. Wowe. Vanilla and light woody tannins instemsofy and add to the grapey character. Pleasantly dry but not too thin. This is really nice. The base beer could be more complex but the wine barrel just gives it a great overall flavor. Nice

Pisgah 10th Anniversary Vanilla Oatmeal Porter
Aroma was decent although vanilla dominated there was some roast and a little Cocoa. Flavor wasn’t nearly as good kind of a mismash that didn’t blend well together some molasses little bit of licorice couldn’t pick up on the oatmeal texture, roasty, a lot of vanilla and a bit of cocoa some high points body was not that great

So been sitting on this for a while. That was a mistake. If you have one of these drink it at your peril! It’s not that bad actually. Just not what was intended I don’t think. All carb is gone at this point and you have funky metallic grape juice left.

Pisgah Vortex II (Bourbon Barrel)
I’ve had this one for a few years. Should have drank it already. Pour doesn’t carry the weight it seems it should for an RIS. Dark burnt wood brown with one finger of dark tan head. Nose is kind of muted with some oxidized dark malt and papery notes, a touch of wood and barrel comes through, and some burnt sugar. Papery dark malt in the flavor with faded stout character and little to no discernible barrel character. Medium bodied and soft carbonation with a touch of warmth.

Pisgah Cosmos (Rum Barrel)
Bought this thing like 3 years ago and finally drinking one. Dark charred wood brown pour with a thin and pretty short lived mocha tan head. Nose shows some dark dried fruit, alcohol, raisin, prune, a touch of oxidation, and vanilla. Dried fruit in the flavor with some warmth and a touch of oxidized dark malt. Not a ton of body and a hint of burnt grain. Medium with a soft carbonation. I honestly expected this to be awful but it’s pretty fine.

A fairly dank and resinous DIPA, with ample ripe and chewy citrus fruits, orange, some bready sugars. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Resinous and warming in the finish, with more juicy, chewy citrus fruits. Not bad overall.
