22oz bomber pours dark brown with tan head and spotty lacing. The aroma offers up some smooth smokiness, mild pork notes as well as band-aid with sweet subtle maltiness in the background. The taste delivers a decent load of smooth smokiness consisting of a bit of alderwood and bacon. Behind those notes are thin levels of malts and roasted malts. Nice.

alexanderj (3268) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle; poured a dark cola/auburn brown with a khaki colored head. Aroma of smoke, leather, caramel, must with a hint of earth/hops in the end. Flavor was a bit mellow for the style, a touch of wateriness too it. Alot of roasted malt and caramel, with a bit of smokiness and earth in the finish. A pleasant beer, but not blown away.

IrishBoy (3754) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Bomber from BevMo online (Pleasanton) Nose is chocolate, roasty coffee, and lightly charred oaky smokiness. Clear, very dark brown with a small, lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is moderate smokiness, coffee, and smaller hints of chocolate. Not overly smoked like some smoked ales.

danielcurtis81 (1517) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Served from a 22 ox bottle from BevMo. The appearance is a deep brown black with a medium tan head. The aromas are moderate smoke, coffee, and malts. The flavors follow that up. The smoke flavor isn’t huge it more rides on the coffee as extra roast. Pretty dry flavors. The mouth is medium bodied. A pretty tasty medium bodied brew.

Poured from a bomber into an English pint glass. Color is dark brown/black with a smaller tan head. Aroma is sort of muted for a porter: mostly sweet malts with some roasted malts as well as a slight hint of smoke. Flavor is similar to the aroma, weak sweet malt flavor at the start that transitions into slight roasted/smokey flavors towards the finish where some resinous hop flavors linger into the aftertaste. Palate is thin and watery for a porter. Overall the flavors could have been more pronounced, but I did like the balance of the hop flavors which I think are normally difficult to detect in most porters and stouts.

Pours a deep black color with a thin tan head. Soapy aroma with a hint of vanilla. Some malt as well but nothing too serious. Could be thicker with a heavy taste. But not too shabby.

Of the Coastal Fog brews that have been released to date, the Smoked Porter is probably the best, and certainly the boldest. But that’s not to say this is an excellent beer. Chocolate, moderate roast, black toast, licorice, sweet baking spices, and roasted nuts in the entry, but there are lighter notes of smoke and fruits. However, the beer finishes with a distinct flavors of cola and ripe red apples and tastes moderately sweet. Medium body seems a tad light, but is acceptable, and medium carbonation is somewhat prickly. The nose features aromas of cola, smoked meat, mint, licorice, and medium-dark chocolate, with moderate amounts of smokiness evident. Medium red-brown in color with obvious clarity and transparency through the center of the glass. The pale-tan head pours to half an inch, but settles away fairly quickly in a near-fizzy manner to a thin ring. Not a bad smoked beer at all, but not of high enough quality to make me want to buy it again.
