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.

I picked up on a big choco-nutty flavor, one of the better porters I can remember having in a long time.

DrSilverworm (5050) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2011
12oz bottle. ABV listed as 7%. Nearly pitch-black color, minimal light tan head. Little dots of lace. Good, thick aroma... This could pass for a stout, easily. Nice, crisp carbonation. Good aftertaste, nice bitter dark chocolate aroma. Very drinkable! Some warmth, but great roastiness.

Vary dark amber with a nice brown head that drops off quickly. Lace remains top-to-bottom through the entire glass. Taste is mostly dark roasted malt with bitterness from coffee and chocolate. There is a wisp of smoke if you look for it. Very drinkable. I found that it goes very well with plain Wheat Thins.

Pours black with thin, but creamy tan head. Pretty good head retention. Aroma of coffee and some alcohol. Taste of black coffee, roasted malts, and dark chocolate. Finish is long with slight bitterness. Very well done, will be drinking this again.

Bottle. Wow, thats phenomenal, and lives up to the rating for sure. Pours a very dark robust but clear brown with a small off-white frothy head. Love that aroma, purple fruit, hops, charcoal, dark chocolate, balanced roast, nutty, everything a porter should be. Flavor follows exactly, bit of a burnt rubber thing that plays very well with the ashy fruitiness, plums, oh that yeast character is quite nice, finishing nutty with some lingering coffee. Medium bodied, creamy with fluffy carbonation feel with a slight sizzle. Very well done here.
