12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Very English style here, love the hop tone with minty and earthy suggestions in the nose and on the taste buds. More of chocolate toasty flavor than roasty, something of a burnt flavor but its like a soft charcoal. Some sweetness and a little chewy, kiss of warmth as well. Job well done, way to easy to knock back.

Another "new American porter" style... lighter bodied, easy to drink. This is an amazing, yet simple beer. An Asheville classic!

Creamy mouthfeel and little to no roastiness present on the palate, with a distinct chocolate finish.
