From the pint can, it pours a deep dark brown with a robust light tan head that slowly fades to a layer and leaves a bit of lacing. The nose picks up roast, chocolate and some alcohol. The mouth gets a well balanced with some roast malts and chocolate. The body is medium.

Look: Nice almost black beer but almost no head.

The hops strains are pungent and don't quite match the flavor of the dark malt.

Otherwise, a pretty standard porter.

Had this awesome Porter in Morgantown WV at the full service Marriott. Very nice end of the season (early July) Porter on draft!

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a cola color with a 1 inch head. Smell has lots of chocolate, some coffee. Taste is a great balance of chocolate and coffee, hints of hops. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall this is my first beer from this brewery, and I'm impressed with it. I look forward to trying some more.

I'm trying this at Wheeling Brewing company. It poured an opaque dark with no head and no lace. The scent had hints of roast and chocolate. The taste was nicely balanced and easy with good roast peat and chocolate presence. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a good porter.

I’ve had it off tap a number of times. Nice, very dark brown, almost black. Light tan head that mostly dissipates in about 10 minuets, but a last, light layer stays the duration. It leaves behind some lacing. The smell is definitely roast, chocolate, coffee, and maybe some caramel. Mouthfeel is right in line with where a Porter should be. Mid range carbonation, not too fizzy, but a moderate bit of fizz. Now on to what matters most, and that’s the taste, which follows the nose pretty much. Great flavor! Exceptionally good tasting and a treat to drink. Nice job!!!

Stopped in Charleston (WV) in late December 2016 and took a chance on this porter. It was sublime! I wish that I could get in IPA-dominated Charlotte. Great stuff.
