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.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2007 Light fluffy clouds of head top this dark beer mountain. Trudging through a thick forests of coffee, cocoa & malt an unexpected (&unplanned?)magic jumps from behind the trees, offering a sour treat. Despite the smoke (&\mirrorsrorrim/&), the alcohol sticks out like a giraffe hiding behind some shrubbery... -... A bit bitter on the decent.

Poured a reddish-brown from the bottle with light head. Dark malt, chocolate aroma. Other than that, I was pretty unimpressed. Not much distinctiveness in the way of flavor, and left a bad taste afterwards. It seemed pretty watered-down too. Not much substance.

On tap at the brew pub. Dark brown/ black. Smells of roasted coffee and chocolate. Rich mocha flavor. This is a delicious beer.

NeroFiddled (105) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2002
Very deep color with a light brown creamy head. Iíd expect a bit more aroma - light dark malt and some background smokiness; no hop. Immense chocolate flavor immediately followed by alot of alcohol and a distinct Fuggles flavor. Complex and full bodied with a warming character. Very nice!

KSS (102) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2006
Very much as advertised. Smoked malt flavor with a balanced hops finish. The aroma from this bottle was at first slightly sour, but otherwise pleasantly complex with hints of fruit, coffee and chocolate. Very nice porter.

bonk0076 (99) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Pours a dark brown color with a moderate tan head that slowly dissapates leaving a sticky lacing behind. Aroma consists of toffee, roasted malt, perhaps chocolate and oatmeal. Taste is a very robust combination of roasted malt bitterness and chocolate/ toffee sweetness. Very flavorable porter

tmad (93) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Very dark brown, with a light brown head. An aroma of roasted malt with a hint of chocolate and coffee. Taste is very satisfying, the full body lingers on the palate, a thick malt sweetness. Has a taste of plum / raisin in the background, with just the right amount of hops for a satisfying finish.

Dark beer. Light carbonation, burnt flavor, lightly sweetened. Not big fan of porters.

rodzilla79 (90) - Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2011
This is a sweet porter. Itís not too heavy and has coffee hints and chocolate tints. Itís a shame itís getter warmer outside because I would like a few more cold days to enjoy this.

Indy (87) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2005
Tastes like the little brother of an Imperial Porter, but at over 7%, itís no runt. Aromas and flaveors of chocolate, caramel, and coffee on the malt side, with a nice hop-bitter finish. One of the best porters Iíve had in a long time.
