Thanks to n2185 for the hookup. My first beer from this NC brewery.
Pours a deep, dark, woody brown, with two fingers of dense medium-tan head. Good retention, and very nice lacing.
Smell is a good mix of sugary sweetness and dark roasty-smoky char. After the head's gone, I'm having a hard time pulling much out from the smell. What happened?
Taste is quite heavy on the char - tastes a bit like chewing on charred wood, with a touch of smoke. Mildly bitter, very roasty, and not as much sweetness as I want from it. Not bad, but not great. Taste is kinda thin, and I want more from it than I'm getting.
Mouthfeel is quite good - medium-bodied, and very mouth-filling, actually.
Not a bad beer, but the taste is very one-dimensional. Heavy on the char and the smoke, and I just want more different flavors, more depth, more something. Not my favorite porter.
