This nostalgic porter evokes memories of chocolate and coffee around a campfire.· The cherry wood smoked malt used in this beer gives it a heavy smokiness that blends smoothly into the chocolate malty body.· With a silky finish this porter is ideal for sipping on a cold winters eve.

Not as much smoke as I would like. Black with thick foam, fairly thick palate on this beer Heavily roasted, and an almost burnt grain flavor in some sips. Some malt sweetness and charred wood in the flavor, as well as a hint of wood smoke.

SDalkoholic (2232) - 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 (2128) - 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?

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.
