Had on-tap at Buffalo Nickel Asheville. Served in a pint glass.

A- Pours a mostly opaque black color with a 1/4 inch tan head that retains well before becoming a full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing slides slowly down the glass.

S-Good roasty aroma that's slightly sweet with notes of milk chocolate. A bit nutty.

T- Flavor brings more roast but it's moderate as a porter should be. However, unlike other porters, the flavor is not moderate. Plenty of chocolate and vanilla sweetness and a bit of coffee in the aftertaste.

M- Slightly robust with medium carbonation and a full body.

O- While it's not exceptional, I feel like the low BA score of this beer doesn't do it justice. It's one of ABC's best beers IMO and it being available in cans certainly doesn't hurt.

Poured from can. Appearance is dark brown with a thin tan head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, and a bit of toast. Taste follows suit but a bit metallic and has notes of coffee and a slight hop bitterness. Medium body with moderate low carbonation. Overall a mediocre porter.
