3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from a bottle,
this beer had a dark brown-black pour and gave a tan, chocolate shake one to two finger head of bubbles that receded to a cover and ring, it left nice spots and fingers of lacing on the glass,
it had aromas of a wood fire smoke, toasted malt and some roasted malt, coffee, a touch of oily smoke,
some malt and brown sugar sweetness in the background,
the flavor was wood fire and oily smoke, toasted malt and a little roasted malt, black coffee,
faint caramel and chocolate, there was a little malt and/or hop bitterness after the finish,
the mouth feel was light medium and creamy on the lips, and it had average carbonation,
a very smokey porter, smoke was out front on the nose and flavor, a nice blend of a smoke drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013-Pours the color of black with a small tannish head. It definitely has a smoke aroma but there is something more, some kind of sweetness that I cant put my finger on. I am kind of afraid that the taste will follow the nose, I can’t see how it can’t. I’m scared. The aroma slaps me in the face when I go to drink it. Scareder. Taste does follow the nose but its not bad, yet. Maybe a Smokey caramel/chocolate flavor that seems to get easier to drink the more you drink(that’s a good thing with anything you drink). Overall a unique flavored beer that is really good but I don’t know if its what I crave as a beer, but it is good. Hard for me to rate.
