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.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a nice dark color with an off-tan head that doesn’t last very long. Aroma is nice and toasted with some smokey notes with hints of molasses there might be some underlying molasses. Flavor is bittersweet that lasts a decent while and finishes more sweet. There are some smokey flavors with notes of chocolate. Mouthfeel is full while carbonation average overall. This is a great beer I would definitely have again.

NikkTwist (1621) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Draft at Khyber Pass. Very dark ruby pour. Fizzy foamy head. Unexpected full body - especially for a Porter. Burnt wood. Charcoal. Some smoke. Very burnt sugar. Black pepper. Creamy and dark. Strong malts. Super smooth. Not overly complex but much better than expected.

EtTuCthulhu (1045) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JAN 10, 2013
The beer pours a very dark brown with a hint of red, and there is also a slight off-white head; furthermore, the aroma is subtle, but there are definite hints of basement aromas, nuts, dough, and chocolate. This beer is slightly sweet and slightly umami, and the palate is nice and thick with a flat carbonation and a slight astringent aftertaste.

A solid London style porter. Good malt body with very heavy toasty malts. Bit much aroma or head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Imaena (1823) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Not sure why this porter is smoked - not typical of British porter. At least not in this century. Good but overwrought.
