4.18/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

On tap at Wicked Weed

A- pours dark black, nearly opaque with a small light tan foamy head that reduces to a ring, leaving a bit of lace behind

S- earthy and herbal, slightly smoky with some chocolate malt & a touch of coffee. Also picking up some burnt popcorn

T- earthy and herbal coffee notes transitions into a nice chocolaty malt sweetness with just a bit of smoke that rounds it out nicely. More roasted notes on the finish with a nice herbal linger, just a touch of alcohol

M-medium body with moderate carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish with a hint of alcohol warmth

O- a bold and flavorful porter, it reminds me of Edmund Fitzgerald, just slightly less smoky. Very good porter

Draft pour into pint glass. Nice dark pour w tan head that dissipated quickly! Malts and chocolate are mixed with coffee--looks and smells like a porter. Coffee is bold and up front, the hint of chocolate lingers coating the palate. A decent Porter.

On tap in Asheville.
Clear but so dark it is nearly opaque. The body is topped by a very durable head that leaves great lacing.
Solid porter aroma with a flavor that mainly stands out for bring strong and rich.
Medium smoke in taste; somewhat lighter in the nose.

On-tap at Wicked Weed Brewing, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is essentially jet black in color - traces of amber are visible near the edges of the glass when it is held up to the light. It poured with a thin tan head.
S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has a light amount of bitterness. Hints of chocolate are noticeable.
M: It feels light- to medium- bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a very full flavored and drinkable porter.

Dark but not black pour. Decent carbonation and a little head. Smell is coffee and roasted malt. The taste is there same with a nice bitterness. Solid well balanced beer.
