Draft at the brewpub, 5/17/14. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of strong meaty smoke, roasted malts, dark chocolate. The taste is roasted malt, chocolate, smoked ham, moderate hops in the finish. Thin-medium bodied. Nice.

ben4321 (5775) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 11/21/12

Aroma: The aroma has some smoked malts, a little bit of oak, and some coffee as well
Appearance: This one pours a medium-to-dark brown color with a nice beige head
Flavor: This one has a nice smokey flavor with a little bit of bacon and a hint of coffee
Palate: This one has a nice creamy feel on the mouth and a medium-plus body
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty solid Smoked Porter. The smoke doesn’t completely overpower everything else, which is nice. I really didn’t have too many complaints at all. If you like Rauchbiers/Smoked Malts/Porters, you’ll most likely enjoy this one.
