3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is smoky, roasted malt, caramel, chocolate and coffee. Very nice.
The taste is mildly sweet and bitter at the same time, it finishes sweet.
The texture is light.
The aroma was great, the flavor mild, but not bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Backlog rating on 10-02-2012 (Bottle purchased at Siciliano’s Market in Grand Rapids, MI) This beer has a medium sized tan head that is mostly lasting, transparent reddish brown body, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is nutty, coffee, chocolate, and lightly roasted. The flavor is lightly bitter, coffee and lightly roasted. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is quaffable and I did not detect any smoke characteristics. It is worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bomber this poured a dark mahogany body with a sustained light brown head. It had an aroma of smoked ham with lightly roasted dark malt. The flavor was light all the way around. The smoke gets kind of ashy and the malt flavor is very mild. Dry finish. This need much more in the flavor department. I can understand why this isn’t listed as a smoked beer, but I’m starting to wonder why it was listed as a porter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clean and dark rusted brown sitting black in the glass. Dons one finger of beige tan head. Nose is fine, some round sweet malt with caramel notes and papery malt. A touch of watery coffee and darkish malt notes....kind of nondescript. Flavor is fine. Some mildly smoky notes and a touch of roasted barley. Watery day old coffee notes and some cola. Meh
