Dark, mysterious, smoky, in your face. Yup, that pretty much describes Toaster Bat Black Smoked Robust Porter. Our highest gravity brew at 8.5% ABV is made to bring back memories of camping trips. Toaster Bat Black has the right amount of smoked and peated malts to balance out the malty smoothness of the porter base style. Pitch black in color and pours with a chocolate colored head, Toaster Bat Black will intrigue your senses and take you to places unexplored. One drink and you’ll think you just saw a bat get shot out of a toaster.

Tap @ Lakewood. Jet black pour. Light brown lacing. Charcoal aroma. Smoke up front with undertones of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and nice malty bitterness. Really nicely done and doesn’t overwhelm you with smoke.

onceblind (6631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Black pour with a thin tan head. Nose of dark roasty licorice and a smokey black malt bitterness. Flavor is roughly the same with bitter roasted black malts, smokiness, a little roasty licorice and chocolate sweetness, and a certain smoky acrid finish. Hard to drink after a couple of sips.

BeerandBlues2 (11663) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Blind tasting. Pours opaque with a medium, frothy brown head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy beechwood, cherry smoked malt, roast and a meaty character, light hops, and dark fruity esters. Flavor is heavy smoke, roasted malt, meaty (mmm... bacon), light hops and bitterness, dark fruity esters and a dry finish; vinous notes late. Full body and medium warmth.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 (Had again atthe brewery today - seemed much more sweet, syrupy - smoke seemed much more like burnt wood - much less enjoyable than I remember) Tap at Denver Bicycle Cafe - black pour, with a this, tan head - nose is very smokey and meaty, with notes of anise, leather, char/wood - fairly creamy mouthfeel - quite sweet, with notes of vanilla and chocolate - balancing flavors of lint smoke and dark malt bitterness - the smoke character tastes more like a phenol than something from the malt - finish is a bit spicy, with bittersweet chocolate - interesting and hearty brew.
