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%).

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2012
Dark brown, a bit cloudy and with a thin head. Lightly smokey nose, with tart/charry notes that I don’t like. Good (I am a smoke whore, after all), but quite a few areas need improvement. The smoke is a bit different, and I like that, but the weak malt character does nothing to make this beer better.

Bomber from the Natomas BevMo. Pours pretty black with a 3 finger foamy tan head. Aroma is fairly smokey, suggesting bacon to me. With wood. Med+ body with good carbonation. Flavor is woody, smokey, bacony. It’s dry and a little astringent. Very, very good.

Bottle shared. Dark clear brown, medium tan head. Aroma of coffee grounds and caramel. Taste is moderate smoke and a bit of bacon. Not sure why the smoke is in the flavor and not really in the aroma. This one got good reviews from friends.
