COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Ass Kisser Porter Pounder is a dark, rich balanced ale that is smooth and yet structured with light coffee and mocha aromas. The subtle smoky aroma lures your palate to sip through the dark tan head. Enjoy with grilled and spiced foods. Formerly brewed at Rahr (at 8.03%).

22oz bottle - A nice beer, and compared to the regular beers that are brewed by Hermitage, this is a step up from their regular pedestrian brewing results. The aroma has some moderate sweetness, bakers chocolate, and a light bacon-y/smoked deli meat/burned paper thing going. The sweetness really melds well with the malts and the smokey notes really carry thru during the different temperature changes. Not super complex, but quite enjoyable.

"This 8% brews aroma is dominated by roster malts, mocha, and smoke. The smoke is even more subtle in the flavor. Flavor is roasted malts and mocha, hops & dark fruit. Robust yet dry in the finish, which shows a tiny bit of the smoke. Brewed by ass kisser ales AT Hermitage. I can’t believe Hermitage actually conceived and brewed this as its sooo much better than nything I’ve had from them."

Poured from a 12OZ bottle into a pint glass. An OK 8% abv.beer. The beer is dark (almost black) when poured. Has a tan head and emits a faint aroma of smoke. I just started appreciating Porters so this beer may need to be re-visited in the future.

650 ml. I’ve consistently ignored this one on the shelf for nearly a year because I thought it was an alias of the same brewery’s similarly labeled Stubborn Jack, and because most of their non-smoked stuff has been unimpressive. Pours nearly opaque chocolate with a lasting disc of foam. Just a hint of smoke on the nose mixed with espresso, cocoa and caramel. Taste is caramel cola, dark toasted bread, and a small but increasingly noticeable flavor of smoke. Medium body is smooth with a low level of carbonation and tends to the sweet side, but the smoke rescues it from cloying. A fine example of how a bit of smoked malt can make an underlying mediocre beer interesting.

Maris (1011) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2014
From a 355ml bottle on 20/7/2014. Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Has a strong and quite pleasant smoky aroma, but with less bacon than you often get with smoked brews. The smoke is relatively subtle in the mouth but compliments sweet chocolate, a touch of dark fruit and spice, and a nice roasty lingering bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This is a really impressive, cohesive brew and definitely one of the best smoked beers I’ve had. Lovely stuff.
