On tap at Stone Ridge Tavern in Asheville, NC. Very dark ruby-brown/black with a moderate tan head. Initial impresssion is burnt malts, coffee, and cocoa. Hops are not evident at all. Medium mouthfeel - a little light for a porter. Not bad - I'd probably have again.

12oz bottle poured out for samples

A — Pours a nice deep rich brown hue into the glass, there is a light coffee colored head that forms and leaves behind some OK spotty lacing.

S — Smell is light and quite fruity, though it is balanced with some nice light roasted malt character, still quite light for the style and the English ale yeast really comes to the forefront.

T — Taste is light and slightly roasted, notes of chestnut, cocoa powder, and a bit of berry, and light yeasty esters.

M — Medium bodied, easy drinking and smooth.

O — Nice overall, somewhat monotone and the yeast strain really comes through.

Solid porter. Pours dark brown, small head, good lacing, chocolaty flavor. Rich malty, roasty taste with only slight hops bitterness. Will definitely have more of these.

Appearance: Very dark, opaque brown-ruby — almost black. A little tan suds and thin lace.

Aroma: Chocolate, roasty malts, a hint of coffee. Exemplary.

Taste: Bittersweet cocoa/chocolate, burnt malts, smooth iced coffee. In fact, smooth is the operative word here, as this porter is easygoing, faithful to style, and so very drinkable. A delicious and well-done porter!

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!
