12 ounce bottle poured a dark brown color with aromas of smoke, light chocolate, and some light roast. Flavors are the same, light smokiness in the aftertaste, decent smoked porter overall.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a small off-white head. Nose has some chocolate elements up front with the coffee notes underneath, and some very subtle smoke notes on the back end. Taste is definitely quite smokey, and that dominates any flavor in the beer. Interesting, and much better than the BBA version.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
I picked up a bomber of this stuff from McScrooge’s because the word "smoked" was on the label. I knew you haters would start hatin’ and here we are with an 83 score given to a bitchin’ bad-ass brew. Why do ya’ll keep frontin’?! This is dope shit! fo real!!! Lots of meat and campfire in the nose with savory earthiness and bitterness which could be reminiscent of hard wood. Palate is full with lots of meat and roast all over the place. Ass Kisser has a long and steady dry finish with distinct bite, perhaps imparted by smart use of hops, and enough meaty goodness to keep me satisfied. If it was even more smoky I’d be losing my shit right now, but this is a fantastic beer as is. I’d buy it again except Schlenkerla is on the shelf right below it at a much cheaper price.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The appearance is an almost black color with a carbonated white head. The aroma contains hints of smoke, chocolate, coffee, mocha, and vanilla extract. The flavor is somewhat bitter and dry with more smoke in the flavor than the aroma. It also contains some hints of dark chocolate and licorice. The finish is quite bitter and dry. Overall a fairly nice porter especially for those who aren’t into sweeter porters.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice! Campfire smoke nose. Dark brown, modest head with clingy lacing. Pleasing smoky flavors with a little caramel behind it, balanced finish with a lingering smoke, maybe a touch too sweet, pushing toward cloying. But overall pretty good. Hard to believe its 8% until I get toward the end of the bomber when I can start to feel it, and there’s an spiritous component to the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a very very dark amber with sturdy beige head. The aroma is a very sweet type of smoke, with some chocolate and beef notes. The flavor is more porter than smoke (but I have a pretty high threshold for smoke). Bitter chocolate, some raisin, some woody notes. The beefy smoke notes come mostly toward the finish, as the aroma wafts backwards into my sinuses. Leaves a dry bitter chocolate aftertaste. Not bad.
