I had this on tap at the Liberty Steakhouse near my hotel in High Point.

Served in a pint glass.

A: This had a BIG foamy head with tightly wound bubbles that resembled a nitro pour. The liquid was pitch black and the lacing was plentiful.

S: Very faint scent of dark malt (extract?) and Maxwell House coffee.

T: Even lighter than Guinness in terms of taste, but the aftertaste had a sort of buttery, bourbon-esque quality that definitely improved this one overall.

M: This was quite thin texture-wise, which was disappointing. I got a bit of bitterness, but I definitely wouldn't describe it as porter-esque BBQ char.

O: How does someone mess up a porter? Well, I almost tasted it.

A dark black-brown color with a decent tan ring head and modest lacing. The aroma is straight forward charcoal with faint citrus overtones. The flavor is predominantly charcoal and lemon with a hint of milk chocolate. Nicely balanced in a medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation and a somewhat chalky, smooth feel. Easy drinking with a clear charcoal theme that is just sweetened enough by the chocolate idea to provide nice balance and potential sessioning if you like this style. Very nice.

My second beer at Liberty, after the rather unimpressive IPA.

Pours a pitch black... once again, as with the IPA, absolutely no head. The bartenders at this establishment need to be instructed how to properly pour a brew.

Very little aroma at all, but at least I can pick up a small bit of roasted malt.

roasted malt taste, followed by a bitter, toasty flavour. If I typically saw this discription of a porter, I would think I would like it, however this one misses its mark.

Crisp mouthfeel... not thin, not thick, not what I'm looking for.

Moderately drinkable for a porter, but still vastly unimpressive.

My first taste of this summer seasonal at Liberty,pours a deep brown with some ruby tint with a thin light brown head.Aromas are deeoply roasty with an underlying fruitiness mainly plum,flavors are quite fruity for a porter very nice with a nice roasted malt persona makes it well balanced and flavorful.The best of the offrings from Liberty,well made.
