On tap at the brewpub in Chapel Hill.

Dark brown in color with a nice lasting tan head.

Roast and dark chocolate on the aroma, with a hint of cardboard that has become a common theme in many Carolina Brewery beers I've had.

Slight vinous notes and cardboard on the flavor with a roasty and chocolatey malt base.

Rather dry with medium body and average carbonation.

The description mentions that this kind of beer was originally called "entire butt," and after drinking this beer I can understand why. Just kidding, but still it was below average.

Pours very black with brown hues
Generous head that leaves a quarter inch head that sticks around. Decent Lacing

Smell - Dark roasty malts with a very slightl sweet smell with some chocolates mixed around in there.

Hello Guiness. First comes the sweetness which hits you straight away then disappears just as fast.Then come the dark roasted malt. Tastes strikingly similar to Guiness. A tad heavier though.

Leaves that roasted malt flavor lingering with a slightly syrupy soda type sweetness mixed in somewhere.

This is probably Carolina Brewery's second best beer behind their Flagship IPA.

Pours an incredibly dark brown color. Almost black but the true brown color gives itself away arond the edges. Slight, tan head that receded to two thin scuzzy lines. Nose is toasted malts and oatmeal sandwich bread.

Flavor is a combination of wholesome, sweet and filling oatmeal balanced with a slight hoppy tang. Some slight bursts of sulphur on the tongue as well. Lots of toasted malts. Perilously close to a Baltic porter but the oatmeal keeps it firmly grounded in the oatmeal stout style. Medium body that is perhaps a touch thinner than optimal. Still a very nice and easy drinking example of the style. Nice take with the oatmeal provides a smoother mouthfeel than some others that are not quite as balanced.

Pours a dark opaque brown with a tan head.

Smells of roasted coffee beans and hints of cocoa.

Very smokey taste, like hickory firewood, along with some bitter hop character and mild coffee flavors.

Medium to full body with a tingle of carbonation.

Good unique porter; I love smokey porters. This one is quite good if you like that sort of thing. Would certainly have this again.

Sampled on tap at the brewery.

An easy drinking, smooth and flavorful beer. It's quite dark and has a creamy consistency. The malts have some nice variety and all of the elements work well together.

Nothing wrong with this one. It really hit the spot.
