COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A complex beer, with layers of flavors unfolding as this beer slides down your throat. Before the introduction of indirect-fired malt kilns, all beers had a smoky flavor. Today only a handful of brewers produce beer reminiscent of those of the past. We use imported German smoked malt to add depth and complexity to our Smoked Porter. Sensory Profile: Aromas of smoked wood, licorice, and dark fruit. The flavor is a balance of smokiness, roasted malt, coffee, and malty sweetness. Food Pairing: A natural match for any smoked or grilled meats. The smoky flavor of the meat and the unique smoky flavor of the beer blend beautifully to elevate the enjoyment of them both.

Pours a dark brown with a tan lacing. A smoked meat aroma us accompanied by chocolate and coffee. The body is dry, but at times bittersweet.

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle... Pours dark brown with a mid-sized, creamy, light khaki head. Good retention. The aroma is a luxuriant swirl of brownie brittle, melted fudge and campfire smoke. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. The flavor offers dark chocolate, charred wood and campfire smokiness. Short, crisp, singed finish.

Reynolds314 (2440) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Murky brown black color with oily head. Aroma is smoked meat, and grains maybe some raisin. Taste is really oddly meaty in the smoke which i dont dig. Decent at best.

Goodgrief (1813) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - NOV 22, 2014
On tap at Pinocchio’s. Dark pour, smallish head. Chocolate aroma with some hints of bacon. Roasted flavor, mild sweetness with some mild smokey flavor. Well balanced and crafted. Enjoyable but not a must try.

Lukaduke (2375) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Pours a burnt umber color with a finger of khaki foam. Nice balance of roasted, bittersweet cocoa and well integrated smoke. Layers of ash, bakers chocolate and some composted earthiness.

crajun (995) - , Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2014
bottle received from tgncc in trade. I liked this more than most. I was out on smoked beers, but this one was done with the right amount of smoke - not overpowering and underneath is just a damn good porter. taste was cola, smoke, malt, high carbonation. good stuff. would drink again!

maekchu (2300) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle. Sweet chocolate aroma, with dark fruit leavings and very light smoke. Medium dark brown color. Some good roast, chocolate, ripe and slightly rude dark fruit. Light fruit finish. Thin-medium body. Somewhat tasty. Quite thin-bodied stuff, with very little smoke. Underdone overall.

Bottle from BOTW. Nice smokey nose, bacon, chocolate, oysters. Tart and bitter, light. Rather disappointing flavor that doesn’t impress.
