Drank from bottle so reviewing blind. Big Green Man IPA fan so expected no less from the porter. Subtle nutty roasted back of mouth feel with clean finish - very nice.

My second beer from this Brewery. Impressed once again. Dark cola color with a one finger tan head that dissipates quickly with no lacing. The nose is a nice blend of roasted chocolate malt and a nutty element. Taste follows the nose. I like the bitterness balanced with some grassy noble hops. A creamy mouthfeel and medium body. I will place this on tap for the fall season. Recommended.

This is a smooth, easy drinking porter. I was visiting NC and decided to tote some of this home.....it was worth it.

A rich, velvety, chocolate brown behind a Harp logo on a nonic glass. The dark khaki foam that reaches one-half inch lasts for a few minutes before leaving no lace.

Milk chocolate and coffee greet the nose, followed by light roasted malt and nuances of hazelnut.

The flavor is sweet up front but quickly displaced by bitterness, both of which are mild. Sweet milk chocolate and roasted malt are followed by mixed nuts. A long, mild finish brings back the sweetness and lingers. All these flavors open up with warmth.

The body is medium on entry, then becomes fuller. Alcohol is as expected and the texture is slick like nylon. There is a fine fizzy carbonation and mild astringency.

This beer works well after a long day. It is tasty and interesting, yet subdued enough to leave room for conversation. One might also find it works well as a dessert beer.
