Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Top notch. The nose is roast and chocolate with touches of smoky vanilla. Transparent black with a tight fine beige head. Balanced between sweet malt and vanilla flavors and roast and smoke bitterness. Full side of medium bodied with a smooth carbonation and mouth feel and a balanced finish.

ICEatALAMO (1144) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle. The pour is black. The aroma is big on smoke. The taste has a little sour funk to it as well as the strong smoke. Not sure I get any vanilla out of this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (3128) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 11, 2015
12 oz bottle, undated. A nearly black, clear liquid, topped by a moderate tan head. Smoke, whiskey, oak and dark malt in the nose. There’s a hint of vanilla in both the nose and the mouth, and it lingers into the aftertaste. A hint of hops in the flavor too, but the major change is from the very sweet aroma to a slightly sour taste. O: too smoky and poorly balanced for my taste. Glad they have gone back to the non-smoked version.

djd07 (6258) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is roast, smoke, and vanilla. Thin mouth with strong smoke and sourness that tastes infected, no.

Imaena (2086) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle. This is thin, sour, and bitter with a weird sweet and smokey finish. Way too much going on and too little attention to the fundamentals.

bytemesis (4762) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle. Pours opaque black, small brown head, dissipates quickly, done lacing. Aroma is light smoke, roasted malt. Flavor is very smoky, almost artificial smoke, medium sweet, kind of sickly. Astringent smoked teriyaki meat. Light bitter. Sour. Are we infected perhaps? Medium body. No.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle from drowland, cwsample, Cavie. Dark pour with a tan head. Aroma is meat, smoke, and vanilla. Taste is sour, very sour, prune juice, smoke, and spicy booze. Painful finish.

Cavie (4043) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle. From who the hell knows where. Pours a dark brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is smoked, beefy, vanilla bean and some malts. Flavor is sour, tart, smoky and roasted malts. Very sour. Yuck. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cwsample (163) - Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle from Fratto. Pours very dark. Smells of malt and alcohol, slight sour. Tastes more sour than porter should be, very smoky. I don’t get much vanilla from this bottle. Sour smoke?!

ads135 (3563) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - MAY 12, 2013
I’m not a big fan of this beer. The smoke is a bit overwhelming and the vanilla accentuates an off sourness to it. Josh brought this back from his trip to Mississippi.

This beer has a little, to non- existent head, and a deep coffee like color. It is thick, with a smoky aroma. It has a lightly smokey taste, with subtle vanilla overtones. Excellent beer.
