tap at brewpub feb 2012-pours almost black with a very lite tan head around the rim of the glass. nose of big char and smoke. smoke is ever present, but never overbearing. flavors are very char almost astringent bitterness (malt husky type) and the smoke under all of it. this is awesome and very robust. long dry char and smoke finish. I would consider this a fantastic smoked porter if you ask me. Well done Justin!
