3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark with a creamy tan head. Aroma is smoke, sweet molasses, roasted malts. Medium bodied. Flavor is much the same with some chocolate thrown in to really liven it up. Straight forward smoked porter but very well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has nice smoke notes...like the smoke box on a BBQ smoker. Flavor is very smoky...hint of band aid that is saved by late roasty/dark chocolate notes. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is smoky/roasty but thins a bit.
