Bottle from South Lyndale Liquors (Minneapolis, Minnesota)
Aroma: Malty, smokey, some chocolate and licorice notes.
Appearance: A dark brown/black color with a small brown head.
Taste: Moderately sweet, slightly bitter. Not as smokey as I would have liked from a smoked porter.
Palate: Light bodied, average carbonation, and a bitter finish.

SDalkoholic (2089) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Appeared as a dark brown liquid that allows for more light transparency that most other porter styles do. Aroma is faint but does give off a minor scent of smokiness and lightly roasted dark malt. The drink is mild with a delicate touch of roast malts but falls short in regards to delivering a smoky flavor. Maybe it’s just too subtle a beer for me but I will note it is balanced well considering it is a smoked porter. Also, it was an affordable bomber for the price of $4.99

piscator34 (1888) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottled sample. Near black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of chocolate, roast, mild cherry, and a bit of toffee. Chocolate upfront in the mouth, along with minerals and light roast coffee. Medium bodied. A solid "straight up" porter, but where is the smoke?

pinkzambia (1394) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle: Brown color with a roasted, nutty aroma and a little smoke. Thin body with mostly a bland malty flavor. The smokiness is not really noticeable in the flavor. Ok.

Roasty, sweet aroma and flavor. Nice smoked flavor, and not too much of it... A little sweet for my tastes, though.
