this is a unique porter, hoppe as anything, and probably more of an american porter than an english one, but its delicious just the same. it pours inky black with only a thin mocha colored head. the nose is very dark roasty malted barley, and even a touch of oatmeal. there is a cascade hop presence, or something similar. then flavor starts off like a normal porter, chocolatey and rich, still yeasty, and fresh. then in the finish a big hop wave washes all but the darkest malts away and leaves a sticky bitteness in the mouth. its a little undercarbonated in terms of mouthfeel, but the body is massive and it still feels smooth and slick. this is a nice porter, kind of different for the style. could easily have two or three of these.

A: Pours a dark brown, almost black. A small beige head forms and leaves some light lace behind.
S: Roasted malt is dominate as a good porter should be. Some chocolate and toffee aromas as well. There is even some peppermint that is very unique.
T: A huge roasted malt flavor. Chocolate, coffee, and toffee are dominate. Just the way I like porters to be.
M/D: A medium body with a crisp snap of carbonation. Easy and smooth to drink. A very sessionable beer.

This is another good beer from Carter's. This is a very good brewery, and a beer I highly recommended.

had on-tap at the tasting room at the brewery. first as part of a sampler flight, and then a full pint. the other beers that were in the flight were good too (Brown Ale, Oatmeal Stout, Tripel), but this was my favorite.

was a dark brown almost black color. thin white head. aroma and flavor are typical of a good porter, very malty with notes of chocolate and coffee. roasty, but also a little sweet. carbonation was fairly low, with thin to medium body.

at $3 a pint, drinkability can't be beat!
