COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This strong porter features a solid smoke presence, a rich malt character and a smooth, rounded mouthfeel. Additions of dark muscovado sugar, oats and wheat contribute to its complexity.

22 oz. bottle. It pours dark brown with an off white head. The aroma is sweet apples with a mildly phenolic smoke character. Almost no chocolate or roast. The flavor is very sweet, but a simple kind of sweetness. Apples mostly with a bit of brown sugar and a strong smokiness creeping in the finish. Not a fan of the sugary flavors in this one.

DiarmaidBHK (3597) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Draft at the sanctuary pub. Pours coca cola brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves a fair amount of lacing in the glass. Has some smoky notes on the nose in addition to the malt. Fairly smooth on the tongue. Hides it’s alcohol very well. Gives you a nice warming feeling.

I do loves me some smoked beers. This one’s good but not great. Smoke in the aroma is quite subtle, with more caramel, vanilla and roast. Taste is a little smokier with brown sugar. Would probably make a great barbecue sauce.

gramity (1518) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
Dark brown. Aroma of smoke. Not an especially strong smoke aroma, and in fact I would have liked more of it. Simple flavor with the smoke and moderately roasted malt and grains. The high abv is well hidden in the flavor and palate.
