Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine May 2007.

Coming from the self-proclaimed "Dark Beer Special- ists," this robust Porter has an addition of oats in the mash to smooth it out. They have also been known to sing softly to their yeast during fermentation. Whatever floats their duck.

Two fingers of a tight, tiny-bubbled head leaves a trail of tan lace down the glass after every sip. Smells of chocolaty roasted malt with yeast and a light fruitiness in the back. Very smooth in a dense medium body; creamy slick mouthfeel makes you go for another sip right away. Flavors of baker's chocolate, French Roast coffee and faint charcoal. Acrid, ghost-like twang and yeast flash past the taste buds. Dry, bready maltiness in the middle with a kiss of hop bitterness; both flavors end up overshadowed by a blanket of roasted grain in the drying finish.

A tasty Porter, with a good showing of balance and a sound, roasted flavor throughout. Above average for sure--largely because of its drinkability. A plate of pulled pork with a sweet molasses sauce and some black beans and rice would do well with this beer.

A - Pours a small brown creamy head that dissipates quickly. Almost black with brownish hues around the edge of the glass.

S - chocolate and caramel malts dominate. Nicely roasted aromas.

T - Nice roasted flavor but not enough complexity for me. Needs something. Finishes with a metallic taste.

M - A little watery.

O - Disappointing, I was hoping for more from this being an NC brew. I'll stick with the milk stout.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

A: tall 1" tan head, slowly collapsing, some scattered lace.... dark, coffee-brown hue

S: raisin, licorice, some mellow roasted barley and milky malt.... vague grape-like alcohol (as in the smell of alcohol coming off red wine or grappa)

T: immediate coffee-like roast and bitterness, with some milk chocolate trailing, cookie-like doughy malt flavor, shifting sharply through the finish to a vibrant herbal hop(?) bitterness with mild citrus-like acidity and a green onion-type sharpness (not at all off-putting, just power-packed)... the aggressive bitterness may, in part, be supplemented by judicious use of patent malt, who knows?.... dark, bitter cocoa long-lasting in the aftertaste

M: fullish up front and through the middle - flows back with a milky viscosity.... ultimately fairly dry with a slight residual worty film left in every nook in the mouth.... hearty and fulfilling

O: perhaps close to what the old English porters tasted like? - just my imagination.... this is an American porter through and through - similar to an Ed Fitz, etc, just a touch more oily.... I could do with another
