black, no head. Good chocolate roast aroma. Aroma is chocolate, fudge and beer. Smokey with chocolate and a little fudge and old coffee. Good malt presence. Good color, good taste. Smoke isn’t too intense.

750 ml bottle. Pitch black thin head. Aroma is dark roasted grain, chocolate with a light underlying smoke. Flavor is nice, smoke is here without question but doesnt overpower the Porter. Deep roasted grain, smoke that lingers after the sip. Body is nice for a Porter.

When I first started to drink this beer it was way too smoky but then when I waited the smokiness mellowed out and tastes pretty good.

Bottle thanks to charule. Pours a medium to dark brown. Light brown head. Aromas of smoke, cocoa powder, grain. Taste is sweet with a slightly dry finish. Body is medium thin and medium high carbonation. Pretty balanced smoked Porter.

February 23, 2015 - bottle via trade with Corey, who hooked me up very generously. Dark brown pour with nice amount of head that lasted a little bit. Aroma was smoke, wood and malt. Taste was consistent with the aroma and nicely balanced. The finish was a tad dry, but not so much that I negatively impacted the palate score because of it, and a touch of alcohol. Surprisingly full bodied for a porter and fairly smooth drinking. Not super exciting, but very well done.

Bottle at James’ for the multi-K tasting. Pours a soft brown with a thin tan head. Soft smoke and a bit of cocoa, chocolate. Medium bodied, smoke and cocoa, soft chocolate. Faint cocoa into the finish. Decent enough, soft lingering smoke.

Great porter, good smoke not overdone. Ageing may have taken edge off. Very drinkable. Above average mouthfeel.
