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.

On Tap. Pours dark brown with an off-white, long lasting head and a good amount of lacing. Aroma is of cacao, brown sugar, toast, nutts and hints of dark fruit. Medium, smooth body. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is semi-sweet, long lasting. Light, easy drinking porter.

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.
