Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Mahogany with a light head. Some chocolate and roast with just a hint of smoke. The flavor brings out the smoke just a bit more, but it’s nothing to write home about. Thin bodied with a roasty finish.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2008
Mild, sweet grainy aroma with perhaps a touch of chocolate but nothing in the way of smoke. Clear dark brown body is topped by a decent, fine bubbled, tan head that recedes to a partial cover with some light lace. Raisin and plum fruitiness with plenty of dark malt bitterness. Smoke is a suggestion in the aftertaste. Dry medium body with decent carbonation. It’s a pretty good brown ale, but "smoked" and "porter" are both lost on me. Sampled on cask at Dix Xmas Extreme Beer festival 2007.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Growler: Poured a dark ruby brown. Aroma was dusty chocolate. Flavour starts sweet then levels off and finishes with a dry smoky bitterness.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at Dix X-mas Xtreme Caskival 2007. Pours a good coffee nose with a mild bourbon backing. Flavour is smoked with a strong roasted malt finish. Not my favourite style but this was pretty good.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Pours almost opaque/just off-opaque. Good lacing. Chocolate malt flavors more prominent than smoke, of which there is too little. Similarly sluggish aromas.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 Didn’t like this much at the Xmas Extreme, but a resample a week later at the brewpub was pretty solid. Dark brown with a thin head. The aroma is chocolatey, slightly toasty, slightly earthy. Rich chocolate taste with a slight smoke accent. Full, warming body and sweet, chocolatey finish.
