Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of smoke, bakers cocoa, vanilla and roasted malt. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of smoke, black patent malt and bakers cocoa with a smooth dry lingering smoked finish.

Niiccceee -- nearly stout like! Incredible chocolate aroma. Solid thick mouthfeel. Very intense chocolate notes. Not getting much smoke, so we have a misnomer here, but I really like this one.

Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose is actually a bit more complex than I anticipated - I got some burnt roasting and a little dark fruit before I got the smokiness of this one. Taste is very smokey and dry, though I can get just a hint of chocolate at the end of this one. Not a bad brew...

Bottle. Dark in color with tan head. Aroma of chocolate, malts and coffee. Taste of dark chocolate and smoke with lots of carbonation. Sour aftertaste. Medium bodied. Overall, I’m not a fan of this beer

Serving: from tap at Filiberto’s Italian Restaurant. Aroma: none detected. Appearance: large, creamy light brown, initial head with good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark-red/brown body. Taste: lightly acidic initial flavor and lightly bitter, smoky finish. Long duration. Palate: medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Overall: excellent porter. Great appearance. Not too acidic. Smoky flavor keeps it interesting.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Brownish-black color with a medium thin beige head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Medium body with flavors of smoked malt, dark chocolate and slight coffee. The finish is malty with a subtle smoke aftertaste. Decent overall.

Majin (256) - West Des Moines, Iowa, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Very dark pour, head dissipates quickly. Smokey smell that dominates the smell. Quick bite on the first sip, then gets real smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bookseeb (118) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Appearance has a dark brown color leaving hardley any head that dissipates quickly leaving nil lace. Smell of mainly the smoke, peat and roasted malt. Taste again of the smoke with the peat that really comes through kinda has the flavor note of smoked bacon. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. If your a fan of smoked beer this is a good one to try

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pours a very deep brown, mostly black colored body with a finger-width, creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is roasty with lots of rich dark chocolates and a light earthy smoke. Just a touch of meatiness. Flavor is similar. Lots of dark chocolates with a nice roast backing and a solid smokiness. Finishes with a light char and peat note alongside a medium-light, earthy and roasty bitterness that is balanced well with a good amount of chocolate. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium, smooth body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid smoked porter. Well balanced and enjoyable with lots of chocolate, roasts, and smoke. Good beer.
