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.

marv3mania (185) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2014
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.

Dark brown color, no head. Has a smokey, burnt caramel and beef jerky smell. The smokey caramel flavor comes out nicely, along with some malts in the background. Pretty good porter.

BrownALEx (281) - Portland, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Pours a pitch black with a nice khaki head. Just beautiful. Amoras of malt and smoke. Taste is robust chocolate, dark malt and smoke. Palate is full bodied. Very thick mouthfeel. Overall a must try porter. Great dark malt presence and great smoke latency. Well done.

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2013
12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Neck stamp declares Dec. 2012 bottling date. Pours a very dark brown, looking black and opaque in the glass. Topped by a modest size tan head that has good retention. Aroma: clearly off style, this smells like smoked meat. Taste: flollows aroma: this is a smoked porter. Never had a British porter like this. Feel: Full body; medium-light, soft carbonation; fairly smooth O: for smoke beer enthusiasts.
