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.

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 (1307) - 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.

EtTuCthulhu (1006) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 20, 2013
The color of this beer is a gorgeous clear, dark reddish brown with a medium off-white head that quickly fades to a ring, and the aroma is a seductive combination of smoke, booze, wood chips, vanilla, and chocolate malts. The taste is quite umami, slightly sweet, and a touch sour; furthermore, the palate fuses a medium body, slick texture, smokey finish, and the tiniest bit of carbonation.
