3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"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."

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
