Not the best porter I have had. Tastes like a dark Budweiser. I hope that I got a bad glass or the wrong beer, but I didn't get any of the overtones I read about in the reviews.

Light chocolate malt nose with some Graham cracker, marshmallow, dry malt, roasted grain and smoky embers.

The flavors are very muted and hard to distinguish. I do get some chocolate malt, light embers, touch of smoke and a bit of barley.

This is quite thin, kind of airy and has a bit of carbonation bite.

Not much here, certainly not offensive but just not much personality to distinguish it from others.

On tap at Scully's in Asheville, NC

Nice dark, cola colored porter with light tan soft head.

Aroma of roasted malt. Taste will light malt characteristics, bit of a souring middle. Some roastiness, and semisweet chocolate notes.

Mouthfeel was a little thin and seemed watery at times. Just a loose drinking porter.

Overall, probably average for the style - I think English Porters just are not all that enjoyable for me. It's the odd sour, thin characteristics I dislike every time I have the style.

Served on tap at Jack of The Wood, Asheville, NC

Decent porter from "Beer City USA". Nothing too out of the ordinary though. it poured an inky black with a dirty brown head. The look was nice, but everything else was just about average. The flavors were all indicative of a porter, the problem was the the flavors simply were not there in abundance. The finish was watery with very subtle smoke, and given the style of beer I really would have appreciated something my palate could marinate on for an extended period of time.

On my way out of Asheville this month I stopped at the airport bar. I sampled a few beers including the Green Man Porter. The color was light for a porter, bordering on a dark oak. When poured it's head was tan and thin, nose smelled of cocoa and carmel. It is certainly malty (what else would you expect from a porter) a majority of the taste is oatmeal with brown sugar with a very low IBU. A good beer but not exceptional. I personally think it is better than Highland's Oatmeal Porter, due to a difference in hop content or type of hops.
