3.65/5 rDev -5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: almost jet black with a small amount of red hues, dark kahki head with small bubbles stays around for a little while then turns to little bubbley foam ontop. A small amount of lacing.
Smell: like a lot of porters/stouts I smelled but one of the better smelling ones - burnt malt ,a bit of lactose? hints of coffee, maybe even pumperknickel bread or even a sweet roll
Taste: sour - almost grapefruity, alchohol, and a grainy kind of bite,
Mouthfeel- very fluid a little harsh bite on the pallate but still quite enjoyable nonetheless.
Drinkability: this beer is very surprising from what i'd though it'd be like. It has elements that I remember from other porters/stouts that I thought was strange but they do it well. Really unique I think. It's neat. This beer seems like it'd go really well with chocolate maybe a cigar on a nice brisk night. I must commend Highland in Asheville for having the guts to do such a different brew in this region. I'm not quite crazy about it though. I'd have to be in a wierd mood to want it again.

I am a huge fan of porters and this brew is no exception. The appearance is dark dark brown...you would think its black until you hold it to light. The head is a off white...almost tan colored. Smell is just what you expect of a porter, kind of a caramel, chocolate, creamy smell with a hint of bitterness. Taste is just as it smells. Up front you get a nice milk like taste with chocolate undertones with a touch of bitterness at the finish. Very good brew indeed!
