On tap at the Brewpub.Poured a near jet black except for a tinge of ruby,a thin off white head atop.Picked up roast and bitter chocolate mainly in the nose,there was a light fruitiness underlying as well.Pretty well rounded flavors going on,somewhat roasty and earthy from the onset,a juicy fruitiness seems to come in late and makes it pretty balanced.A little thin but its a sociable porter,not half bad,I would liked to try on cask.

Dark brown with an auburn glow in the right light around the edges. Head is a couple fingers high at the start and recedes to a thin sheet and ring. Very light brown in head color. Aroma is creamy chocolate, something like green fresh coffee bean, vanilla, nicely malty, and a touch earthy. Taste is sweet, malty caramel and cocoa followed by a drawn out semi-bitter hoppiness, in the direction of pine, and resiny through the finish. Has a sprucy mintiness as well. Chocolate of various kinds...bittersweet, milky, dark, and cocoa-y... Pretty nice stuff. Good mouthfeel; creamy, silky soft, a liiiitle bit chewy.

On tap at the Biere Garden in Asheville.
A - black with a thin brown lacing of head
S - roasty with a big coffee presence
T - creamy, roasty, coffee, faint chocolate, mildly bitter finish

This is a nice, traditional porter. It has solid flavor and good drinkability. I would definitely have this again.

Had this one at the source on a past ticking trip to Asheville! Served from tap into a Green Man sampler shaker. Poured a massively dark brown with a one finger light tan head that subsided to a minimal amount very slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, dark chocolate, and nutty. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, dark chocolate, nutty, and peanuts. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. My one question on this one is, where did all of this nuttiness come from? Holy moly! It would have been nice if it were only an undertone, but that amount was just a little bit too much to put this one in a good category. It however did not totally ruin the brew, but it definitely would have ranked higher if the nuttiness were toned back slightly.

Had this on tap at Dirty Jacks, but this growler was from Brawleys, nice to see growlers making it into the Charlotte area.
Full dark brown pour, thin finger of off white froth. Just barely sticks to the glass.
Aroma has the standard roast, earth, some cocoa.
A malty, bready porter. Roast malt, peat and light coffee. Earthy, pumpernikel like spiciness. Finishes pretty dry, hint of roast and cocoa.
Mouthfeel could be preceived as a bit thin, but it does border on creamy still. Alcohol non-existent and really drinkable in all seasons.

thick dark brown with a large creamy tan colored head on the top. Great retention let it hang around for what seemed like forever before finally being nestled down into just a thin layer across the top. The aroma was very full and sweet. Lots of chocolate roaming through it along with a touch of coffee and lots of sugar. A slight smoked presentation as well. The flavor was also very full for a porter. This almost had a stout like feel to it as it was very thick and full with a great robust profile. Lots of chocolate and coffee notes dominated it.
