3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a nice, slowly rising head. Lots of smoke and some smoked/cured meats in the aroma. Smoke more subtle in the taste, but what’s there is pleasant, supporting the dark malt and smooth coffee flavour. Subtle bitterness and mild but suitable carbonation. Really nice smoked porter, the best from Ass Kisser.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours black with a fading head.
Nose shows sweet malt with roasted overtones and hints of chocolate. Somewhat subtle.
Sweet flavours too, almost baltic porter-like but without the roast to support it. Cloying.
Body feels a little watery.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with no bottling or expiration date. The pour is a nice looking dark brown with vaguely reddish hues and a long-lasting beige head. Nice smoked malty aroma worth a higher grade. Also a subtle sweet maltiness. The body is creamy and in the medium range. The smokiness is not quite as predominant in the taste but it is most definitively there. There was an easy to drink sweetness too. Ass-Kicker seems a bit harsh but overall it was delightful.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours dark brown with amber edges med khaki head. Smell is smoke, charred malts, hint of caramel sweetness. Taste is immediately charred malts/burnt coffee, then minor sweetness creeps in, followed by a good dose of bitterness that rides out with the smokiness. This one is not great, but still enjoyable due to the bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer required a second tasting. Something about the first one was incredibly off, though I may have ruined my palate prior to the tasting. Smoke is mild, but definitely offers the majority of the character. A bit acidic with a light tobacco taste at the end.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A run-of-the-mill slightly smoky black ale, a drinkable beer without much personality.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed two months after purchase.
The look: Near black body topped by a small tan head.
In long: Nose has a light campfire smoke character with notes of vanilla and some tobacco. The smoke presence is rather subdued for considering it is called a Smoked Porter. Body weight in mouth and it helped by a generous carbonation. Taste is charred malts, black liquorice, some tar, molasses, dark fruits (plums, others), light wood smoke presence. Easy to drink for its style and size. I can’t find anything wrong with this brew but the whole thing just didn’t excite me, a lack of character that is hard to put into words, a very drinkable medium size black ale that gets lots in the crowd. So I disappoint myself because I am an ass kisser to earn money and then I use that money to buy an Ass Kisser that disappoints me, I think I just won the irony olympic.
