Tap @The Pony Bar (1st Ave)
Almost opaque ruby-black color, small beige head. Papery, smokey aroma with hints of caramel. Medium-bodied. Smoked bacon, caramalt, rye in the slighlty sweetish flavor. Somewhat Schlenkerla-like, hides alcohol well.

(draft) Dark black pour with a very thin tan head. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma very briefly and then you’re hit right in the nose with a big whiff of smoke. Smoky flavor with some dark fruits and roasted malts and a slightly oily finish. Nice smoky aftertaste with a lingering bitterness.

mansquito (3106) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Pony Bar, 10th Ave Manhattan tap ($6): Pours dark brown with a brownish head. Aroma is smoky meat, roasted malts, and a bit of burnt chocolate, whatever it is that smells like. Taste is smoky. Heavy body and high alcohol content and seamlessly covered by this smooth high abv beer. Nice body, excellent balance. Ain’t much more a man could want.

Growler shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! The beer appears a dark brown color with hints of crimson. The head is a light tan hue and leaves a fair bit of lacing on the glass. The nose brings smoke, roast, and booze. The flavor is decent, with alcohol prominent throughout. Smoke is the primary flavor element, with alcohol and roast coming in behind. The feel is medium bodied and slightly hot on the palate. Overall, a decent beer, but I prefer smoke beers / rauchbiers to be easier drinking and lighter on the palate.

LIVEFAST (62) - Mount Misery, Valley Forge, - MAR 2, 2012
Growler shared @ TJ’s 8, poured into a oddly shaped tasting glass. Jet black with a khaki head that takes its time disappearing. Nose is full of meaty smoke, some vanilla and roasted malts. Taste follows nose, along with appearances from dark fruit, malted chocolate, more peat. Velvety smooth and drinks more like an 8%er. Probably my favorite smoked beer to date.

Lots of roast, chocolate and toffee. thick molasses, prines chwey, creamy body and bark, earthy roast, nutty, touch of carbonic sour, brown sugar and sticky sweet, meaty notes.

Huge, huge thanks to capra12 for grabbing me a growler of this from DeCicco’s. This one has been a longtime coming and I’m glad Jon was finally able to grab this for me. Served in a Bruery tulip. Pours near black with a good light tan head and a bit of lacing as it falls down the glass. The nose brings some night roast and light chocolate and also a bit of a mild coffee presence. Behind this comes a moderate amount of smokiness. Nothing too complex or in your face, but it’s certainly there. The flavor also has smoke as the dominant characteristic, though it doesn’t overwhelm or wow me. Similarly, the background notes come together cohesively, but don’t really stand out too much. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation and moderate dry smokiness in the finish. Drinkability was quite good. Hard to believe this was 12%. I’d love to revisit this one eventually to see if there’s something I’m missing. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 03-08-2011

Draft. Dark pour with some tan head. Well this is a smoked porter, smokey, peat, chocolate, roasted malt and some light espresso tones. Higher abv is noticed but doesn’t take to much away, this may be a better base beer for barreling.
