COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Smoked Porter is a robust London style porter with a deep chocolate/ruby color and the subtle accent of hardwood smoked malt. This distinctive beer is brewed using no less than seven different varieties of premium European malted barley, resulting in a complex and full bodied beer characterized by hints of chocolate, coffee, caramel and beechwood smoke. The big malty finish to this beer is balanced by a solid hop bitterness and the refined English aroma and flavor of premium Goldings finishing hops.

A murky brown tea color with little to no head. Smells of anise, coffee, brown sugar, vanilla. Tastes of anise dominate ,coffee, light hop bitter, brown sugar sweetness, cigarette ash like finish, tobacco, tea. Leaves some bitter on the tongue, medium mouthfeel light carbonation. Pretty good porter all together. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2014
Ar: Coffee, subtle smoke - sticky caramel. Ap: Deep brown, almost black, opaque - medium lightish tan head with good retention, leaves a creamy, compact cap of foam. T: Char and sweet smoke up front - toffee, vanilla, a touch of blueberry - burnt caramel, coffee, and herbal and earthy hops - bitterness is medium-high - finish is more char. P: Smooth, creamy body with medium carbonation - finish is medium-dry. O: Wonderful English-style porter - the smoke really adds a nice accent without being overdone - the firm, robust dark malt flavors are all present, plus some nice caramel and coffee notes.

2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours a dark ruby brown color. Aroma is caramel malt with some chocolate and a "green" smell presumably from the hops. Taste is roasty, bordering on slightly smokey, with dark and caramel malt. Some coffee. An earthy hops bitterness at the end that combines with the roast and builds on the tongue as you drink it. Full, round mouthfeel. Finishes semi-dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle in a pint glass. Appearance is a ruby-tinted dark brown color with a thin mocha head. Aroma is chocolate, some roasted malts, and a bit of a sweet smoky scent. Itís a nice complex aroma. The taste is a bit richer and smokier than the aroma, but itís similar to the aroma. There is a little bit of a mesquite flavor to the smokiness. A bit different from other porters Iíve tried, but not bad.

Black pour with red hue, small amount of beige head. Smokey/peaty/leathery scent. Flavor follows the nose but itís not too heavy, campfire-like. Low carbonation with a clean finish. Nice smoked porter.
