From a bomber at home. Pours ok, but not much happening. Aroma has a smokey chocolate and coffee notes. The flavor is malty and has some of the smokey chocolate and coffee tastes present in the aroma, however the overall taste seemed to be missing something. Its not a bad beer for the price (about $5 for a 22oz bottle), but not the best porter Iíve had.

Bottle with thanks to Eric! Pours nearly opaque dark brown with a very small instantly dissipating beige head. Some lacing sticks around for show. Aroma is roasty, smoky, coffee grounds and ashtrays. Flavor is light plus sweet and noticeably smoky. A touch of astringence but not much bitterness. Fairly light bodied, but not a bad beverage in all.

This was a very tasty smoked brew. Lots of smoke and roasted coffee beans in the aroma, and the taste was full of sweet chocolate, toffee and a subtle bitterness. Overall smooth and delicious. Thanks for sharing, OmegaX.

Bottle thanks to Bytemesis. I like my smoked beers! Aroma is smoke, some ash, light chocolate, roast, and cocoa. Pour is dark, dark brown with a white head. Flavor is light smoke, some roast, semi-sweet chocolate, and bread. Not too bad. Cheers!

Bomber from Incredible. Bristol, what seems to be the problem? I drank a pint of IPA at the brewery, it was full of flaws and uncleanliness. I gave it another go with the smoked porter, a difficult style to make taste bad. Well, there are problems right from the get go. The beer itself looks just like cola. No head, thinnish body, bubbly carbonation. The aroma has that same metallic, sourish thing that the IPA did. I can?t get past it to enjoy any notes of smoke. It took time to work up to a taste and it was definitively less bad. It?s impossible now to ignore the roasty and smokey malts, but the soured grain thing is still there and sticks long with the finish. Palate is like soda. No bueno. Ok. . .I let this warm up all the way to room temp which helped to mask some off notes and drinking it from the bottle eliminates some of the aroma. Still not great, still will not buy again.

Bomber bottle poured clear deep brown w/ avg mostly lasting frothy tan head and good lacing. Faint aroma of roasted malt. Sweet & smoke hit you upfront malty in the middle and faint bitterness at the end, the smoke stays with you as it is long lasting. Soft carbonation, watery in texture, light to medium body. This beer isnít one Iíd drink by itself, but would pair it with a meaty meal.

Barely enough smoke to call this "Smoked" but a very good porter. Toffee, roasted coffee and dark fruit.

wchesser (1013) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Very dark porter letting just a bit of light through a strong coffee brown. Quickly fading head with no lacing. Nose is smoke and some medium roasted malt. Taste upfront is smoke, followed by more smoke, roasted malts, coffee and caramel, and then a nice hop finish with lingering smoke and bitter hops. Smoke is present throughout, but never overblown, which is what I want. This is much better than the current 69 points. Great value too at under $5 for a 22 oz. Will definitely be looking for this again...doesnít seem to get up to Denver much, but I will look for it when I pass through the Springs.

Tap at Brewery. Clear-ish dark brown with a thin light tan head. Intriguing aroma of smoke-roasted chocolate, a bit of char, and some rauchbier grains. Clean taste that is gratefully not too heavy. Some char grilled chocolate tones, burnt toffee, and some light smoke tones. Like a typical smoked porter, but sweeter and lighter in body, which can be a positive if youíre not terribly keen on the style.
