weihenweizen (1676) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Pours black with small dark brown highlights. Almost no lacing, thick body, and low carbonation. Taste is complex roasted malt, some bourbon, some vanilla, some smoke, and a hint of hops in the finish,

shrubber85 (7515) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Tap at brewpub. Sweet toffee and chocolate malt aroma. Dark black color with minimal head. Nice bourbon taste throughout blended with a sweet chocolate malt flavor. One of the smoothest and nicest bourbon barrel beers I’ve had.

Chudwick (2072) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Draft in a pint glass - pours super dark brown with thin beige head. Nose is bourbon and smoke. Aroma is smoky and coffee. Taste is bitter. Aftertaste is long and also smoky. Strong flavor - glad I got the half pint.

PorterPounder (5446) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - growler shared by Robert of Golden Horn (Thanks!). Dark black pour, nice thick khaki colored head. Aroma has hints of bourbon, some smokiness. Flavor is full of smoked cured meat, hints of sweet bourbon that doesn’t linger too long, Hint of chocolate in the back end. Decently thick mouthfeel.

drowland (5989) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 31, 2011
8/31/11. Growler shared by Robert of Golden Horn. Almost black pour with a small tan head. Interesting aroma of smoke and roast with a definite alcohol burn and a teensy bit of tire. Rich flavor of smoke and bourbon, but not the depth of BA I was hoping for. Glad to have tried it!

alexsdad06 (5359) - Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Growler shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear dark brown color with a small beige head. The aroma has mild bourbon notes, woody, slight char, roasted malt and is lightly smoky. The flavor has a bit more smoke and bourbon than the nose. Roasted malts, caramel, light chocolate, peat, vanilla add to the taste. Medium bodied. The bourbon is not forward, but blends with the other flavors well.

madmitch76 (14669) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2010
10th October 2008. GABF. Presented as ’Knob Smoker’ - cracking name - shame it isn’t the official one! This porter aged in Knob Creek barrels. Opaque black beer. A little light smoke, not a huge amount of bourbon. Nice.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2009
From the Jug at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 11/10/2008 (As Knob Smoker ABV 7.5%) Bourbon aroma. Beige head. Black smooth on the palate and strong in alcohol with a crisp and bitter coffee roast finish.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - AUG 11, 2009
On tap at the brewhouse. Pitch black pour with a khaki tan head. Aroma is of smoked bacon (schlenkerla) a solid robust porter base. The flavor is the same. I am not into smoked beers, but people who are will LOVE this beer. I am slowly turning more onto them, and I actually enjoyed this one, but I think that the real smoke lovers will dig this one quite a bit. Silky smooth on the palate with a medium to heavy body. Overall: nice... GREAT for smoked fans (I would suspect).

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Growler acquired in trade with alexsdad06 (thanks!). Poured a dark, dark brown (almost black color) with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of woody, trace of bourbon, earthy, and smoke. Tastes of smoke (stronger than in the aromas), woodiness, roast, chocolate, vanilla, and again a trace of bourbon. The bourbon was barely noticeable - but the woodiness was there.
