    [Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

    The pour was a muddy dark brown with a slight ruby hue and a large (2-3 finger) light brown frothy head that quickly diminished, down to a scattered film and small collar with fair spotty lacing.

    The aroma was very mild with roasted dark malts, light resin hops and a sweaty yeast with notes of bitter chocolate, coffee and toffee.

    The taste was lightly bitter sweet and quite malty with notes of bitter chocolate and toffee pretty much throughout, progressing into a roasty hoppy taste with a bold dark roasted coffee presence towards the end. The flavor lasted a very long time proceeding the swallow with a lightly bitter espresso taste left lingering on the taste buds.

    Mouthfeel was medium in body with a thin dry texture and a medium carbonation.

    Overall this was a rather impressive tasting Porter, with a nice mild hoppy presence which was complimented nicely by the roasty mocha coffee taste...

    The string of North Carolinian beers continues with Foothills People’s Porter. Pours more dark brown rather than full on black with a creamy beige head. Smells of toffee, chocolate, and hard English water. Smooth and velvety texture. The flavor is loaded with charred oak, bitter chocolate, maybe even some roasted marshmallow. Hops really only show up in the aftertaste. More of an English take on the style and very tasty. The mineral/hard water flavor comes through a bit more as it warms. The finish becomes more bitter, as well.

    I like this quite a bit.
