Had this one on-tap at City Bev in town. The pour created a massive tan head on top that lingered for most of the session. The frothy cap produced aromas of roasted malt, chocolate powder, and a slightly chicory fade on the finish. Nice toasty nose. The mouth on this one is a bit thin and lacking in carbonation. A little too slick for me, but that could be the fault of the tap, not the beer itself.

The flavors are as good as anticipated. Big roasty notes that aren't charring or unpleasant in any way. Mild chocolate flavors add a touch of sweetness that prevents this beer from becoming too woodsy and burnt. Good balance of flavors going on. There is a slight metallic finish, but it fleets away quickly. This was good, but I'd love to revisit this is in bottle form to see how the mouth is remedied, if at all. Another reminder why ME is one of my fave NC breweries.

Serving type: on-tap

12 ounce bottle -> New Belgium globe glass

A - pours a rich obsidian black with a one finger tan colored head, some retention, and some lacing left.

S - chocolate, coffee, charcoal

T - There is a chocolately, toffee sweetness present balanced by a finish that is roasted coffee, a bit smokey with a charcoal note present.

M - average thick, average carbonation, a slight bitter aftertaste

O - pretty nice offering. More of a stout than a porter in my opinion.
