4.83/5 rDev +25.5%
Nearly opaque, black in color with a lasting khaki colored head. Georgous, thick, sheets of lacing line the glass.
Heavy on the roasted and coffee aromas.
Delicious roasted malt flavors with some cocoa in the back ground. Hops shine in the finish and linger in the aftertaste. Perfectly balanced beer. With that said the perfect tasting porter as I can't imagine a porter tasting any better.
Silky smooth mouthfeel. Hops in the finish add just enough bite to make the mouthfeel interesting.
Way too drinkable. I was at a bar with 40+ taps and could spend the whole night drinking just this. Excellent porter, excellent beer. Go to your local tap room and order a pint. Go to the brewery and get you a growler. Or, trade for a growler.

Served on tap at Snapshot in Greenville into a Pint Glass
A - Poured a very thick and inky colored black, very very dark, especially for a porter, which was immediately pleasing to me, as I knew this was going to be a good one. No light getting through on this one at all, really quite opaque. A large three finger high head of chocolate colored foam then rose up over the top of it with tremendous retention. After a few minutes it finally settled down to just a thin pillow of tan that lasted throughout the rest of the session, giving it a really thick coating of brown all throughout the glass. Overall, this was an excellent looking porter and I was very excited to get to try this one.
S - The aroma was thick and heavy, again very big for a porter. Lots of notes of chocolate, almost completely dominated by it to be honest. Once you moved past that, there were some nice hints of sugary caramel and a touch of roasted coffee coming through in the smell now. Some nice roasted malts, a touch of smoke maybe, and definitely a hint of vanilla. The aroma was huge and I was just dying to try this one, so....
T - The flavor was wonderful. An extremely full and big profile greeted me almost immediately, really overwhelming the taste buds and sitting you down to let you know this was going to be killer. Full on chocolate malt assault as the first wave of flavor came over my tongue. Big notes here of dark chocolate mixed in with a touch of coffee as well. Very dark and complex, hints of vanilla, caramel, and lactose, all coming though very clearly now and giving me a very good feeling. The finish had a nice little dry hop twang to it; with some light grassy like flavors starting to come through as well. Long lingering finish was full of caramelized sugar and chocolate, this was definitely a very good porter and I was loving every minute of this.
M - Very rich and creamy profile, I was surprised by how full this one actually was. It was not the feel you get from your typical porter, this was borderline on a light stout to be honest. Very nice carbonation as it maintained that excellent feel throughout the entire the session. An excellent example her for sure.
D - This was absolutely a session beer, no question at all in regards to that. I was amazed by how easy and smooth it went down, and how rich the profile was. I would have loved to have had this one all day long, and plan on having many more trips back so that I may be able to have it again. This was truly excellent in every regard and a really easy one to drink.
Overall, I again thought this one was excellent. There was really nothing I could fine wrong with it and it is remarkable that beers this good are coming out of NC and nobody knows about them. If you really want to try and excellent porter, get one of us to send a growler of this your way. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

A-Pours nearly pitch black with a beautiful mocha colored head. There are some auburn hues that come through.
S-Roasted malts, hops, a hint of dark fruits, and some coffee and toffee.
T-More dark roasted malts than the nose signaled. Coffee, toffee, and caramel also play a prominent role in the flavor profile. No real dark fruit notes, which the nose suggested. It tastes delicious.
M-Thick and creamy.
D-I could drink this porter all day.
I love this beer. It is my favorite offering from Foothills. It is absolutely delicious.

A - Very dark brown, almost black. Thick brown head with decent retention falling to a thin cap. Faint, spotty lacing.
S - Rich malts, chocolate, espresso up front. Underneath there is some earthy smells, some faint floral hops, and a little bit of vanilla.
T - Good malts mainly with a chocolate and espresso flavor throughout. The vanilla is also detectable. Finishes with a slight hops bitterness and a little bit of a coffee like bitterness.
M - Perfect for a porter in my opinion. Nice body, not watery or over carbonated and not as full as a stout.
O - Another great beer from foothills. Not something I would buy all the time but definitely something I would buy again.
