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.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2005
Couleur brune, semi opaque, peu de mousse brune pale n’adhérant pas à la paroi du verre. Cacao, caramel grillé, vin et fruits rouges sous une faible présence de souffre et de légumes bouillis. Faible en goût, timides fruits rouges et amertume provenant du malt grillé, étalement court, légère carbonatation.

Bottled. Dark brown coloured. Malts and milk chocolate in the aroma and in the flavour. Very faint smokiness.

Well, I must have gotten a beer from a different batch than most here. Poured dark brown with a crimson hue and soapy dark tan head. The aroma has some sourness, roasted malt and coffee notes. Medium / full body with subdued yet sharp carbonation. Starts with roasted malt and coffee with light underlying sourness. The finish has some spiced hops and hints of chocolate. There is a watery aspect to all of it and the flavors of everything seem about half of what they should be. I’ll try again down the road and hope for a better experience.

Aurelius (4355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2007
This brew had a major flaw in its astringincy. Coldwater, prune, light creosote aroma. Mishmash label, very dark brew, lacy khaki head. Unripe fruit, green nuts, roast coffee. Still, not a total loss-- average.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 11, 2007
Pours a dark black with a tan, khaki head. Requires rigorous agitation to achieve the head, then its gone in 20 seconds. Smells of chocolate, grapes, alcohol. Taste is sweet grape, melon, chocolate with tart lemon, chickory hops. Aftertaste is tart, bitter espresso and alcohol.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2007
uninspriring and overrated. Barely any noticable flavor. Some roasted malt, but not much in the way of coffee or chocalate as advertised. Bitterness was there, but with such a watery malt backbone, this was like tasting "Porter Light". Eddy Fitz from Great Lakes is a far better example of the style.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 8, 2008
Pours a dark brown color with a thin off-white head that fades quickly. Smells smokey. Some toasty malts.I taste tobacco and a bit of coffee. Thin mouthfeel and surprisingly crisp with very good carbonation. Don’t really like it. Too much earthy type tobacco flavors for me.

omhper (19930) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2010
Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Opaque black, creamy beige head. Chocolatey nose. Sweet and dense, medium to full bodied. Molasses, coffee and tar are prominent. Ink and tin hides around the corner. Sweet with clean mouthfeel and tough bitternes. More packed than balanced. The aroma is lovely, but it is quite harsh.

This is a sweet porter. It’s not too heavy and has coffee hints and chocolate tints. It’s a shame it’s getter warmer outside because I would like a few more cold days to enjoy this.
